Diagnosis: Time 2 raise your voice....
During our weekly PRINCE Spreecast, we told you to look for an announcement of Prince playing a Jazz Festival soon. Montreux confirmed the news that PRINCE will be playing 3 shows at the Jazz Festival this year!
Here is the official announcement:
After his two previous appearances at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 2007 and 2009, Prince is back to give three exceptional concerts on 13, 14 and 15 July 2013.
This musical genius first came to Montreux in 2007 to perform an exclusive concert, and returned in 2009, giving two shows in the same evening. This year he is back, confirming his fondness for Montreux, to give three exceptional concerts on three consecutive dates: 13, 14 and 15 July 2013, at the Auditorium Stravinski.
Groovy, funky and the undisputed master of improvisation, Prince’s performances are all unique and unpredictable. There is no doubt that his three concerts in Montreux will make Festival history once again.
Prince 1st show - Saturday 13 July, 8 pm
Prince 2nd show - Sunday 14 July, 8 pm
Prince 3rd show - Monday 15 July, 8 pm
Tickets on sale from 10 a.m. on Friday 15 February on montreuxjazzfestival.com
CHF 175.- (standing) / CHF 395.- (seat)
We want to thank PRINCE for sharing the news first on the Spreecast as well as a few other news items that we will post later today!
Hopefully, if DrFunkenberry does the write up for Monteux like he did in 2009, Montreux will give the doc his credit. We are glad PRINCE is returning to the Montreux stage.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Much LOVE To Claude Nobs
There was some email contact going on by the person running One NPG, and fans who were contacting them.
The site has since been shut down. Perhaps things were went about the wrong way. Perhaps being so vague hurt what the purpose was going to be.
We are sure you know that we wouldn't post anything here like this without some knowledge. Although discussed in the spreecast about perhaps DrFunkenberry running a site run by the fans, this was not run by DrFunkenberry.
As for the official word:
"NPG Records has no affiliation with ONENPG.ORG. and just found out about it today. the NPG's lawyers are all over this and have asked for the site to be shut down."
There you have it. There will be another Spreecast with Seth Everett tonight where we will discuss this briefly, but have a lot more news from Paisley Park including:
L.O.L. (Live Out Loud) video release,
NPG Drummer Position
3rd Eye Girl Update
Tune in live HERE.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Whatever U think Is True.....Right?
OK, PRINCE fans. I just noticed that a ONENPG on Twitter was following me, and no one else. I then went to the web site behind the Twitter account, which is ONENPG.org and it made me really curious.
1st, the tweets, so far, are 3 and I embedded 2 of them below:
“We R the New Power Generation, We want 2 change the world
— ONE NPG (@ONEnpg) February 12, 2013
“We need a new breed...Leaders, Stand Up, Organize”
— ONE NPG (@ONEnpg) February 12, 2013
Then, I went to ONENPG.org and....I didn't know what to think.

One NPG Is A Global PRINCE Fan Collective United In A Single Mission: To Open The Vault.

It also states: PRINCE Is Likely The Most Prolific Artists, Having Created Hundreds Of Projects Over The Past 35 Years That Have Never Been Released. The Vault Is His Storied Depository For These Works.
This was something discussed in our very first Spreecast about a site run by the fans. Hmm. It can't hurt, so I added my email address and followed them back on Twitter.
What do U guys think?-DocFB
Diagnosis: Do U Wanna B In The New Breed?
