PRINCE along with the NEW POWER GENERATION, 3RDEYEGIRL, and JANELLE MONAE closed out a 3 night affair at the Mohegan Sun Arena with quite a bit of flair.
The purple icon took the stage with Janelle earlier in the night to perform their duet "Givin' Em What They Love" and he was rolled out on a dolly!
PRINCE kicked off night one of a 3 night stand at the Mohegan Sun Arena last night with his 21 piece band consisting of 3RDEYEGIRL & The NPG.
He was rocking a yellow suit to perfection along with a symbol in front of his mic stand which you can see in a tweet from the 3RDEYEGIRL Twitter account below.

PRINCE also teased the crowd, asking what they are doing New Years Eve? Will keep you updated if we get any more info on a New Years Eve show from the icon.
Those three PRINCE shows at Mohegan Sun Arena just got a little bit funkier as Janelle Monae will be performing at the December 29th show!
Janelle made the announcement via her Instagram and Twitter feed within the past half hour.

Here is a link for the December 27th, and 28th shows as well.
At The Billboard Woman Of The Year Awards, a quote from Prince was used for Janelle:
"To the only person who worries me as an opening act: they could never praise you enough for your gift to all of them. Keep on giving 'em what we love!" -Prince
We saw Janelle open up for Prince in 2011 during his Welcome 2 America tour and that same night, Stevie Wonder came up to jam with Prince and Sheila E. on "Superstition". It was such an amazing night all around.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Recently, 3RDEYEGIRL stated on Twitter that they would perform "Given' Em What They Love" together with Janelle Monae at least once. Will this be the time?
PRINCE will be playing 3 special East Coast gigs December 27th, December 28th, and December 29th at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Connecticut.
This news was first broken this morning by Rolling Stone.
In a live Twitter interview/Q&A on Friday, they (PRINCE/3RDEYEGIRL) hinted at gigs in late December.
This marks Prince's first performance since 2 late night gigs at his Paisley Park studio in Minneapolis in October along with a new album due in Early 2014, an appearance on Arsenio, plus many, many, many TV appearances.
The new album will feature all new material including "FIXURLIFEUP" which was released earlier this year.
