It had been nearly a year since PRINCE and 3RDEYEGIRL played 2 nights of back to back shows at DNA Lounge in San Francisco, first introducing the Bay Area to his latest concoction of funk, hard driving guitar and new arrangements of some of his catalog.

Much to the delight of Bay Area fans, Prince and the band were back with a vengeance on Saturday night at Oakland's Fox Theater. Tickets went on sale late Wednesday night and sold out quickly.

Even before the show started, Oakland was determined to give Prince a huge welcome, complete with a 200+ person Prince flash mob performance that took place in front of the theater on Saturday afternoon. The mob, comprised of fans, local residents and students from the theater's adjoining Oakland School for the Arts, danced in sync to a medley of two Prince songs - "Delirious" and "Ain't Gonna Miss U When You're Gone", the latter featuring vocals from Oakland's own Ledisi. Prince would even acknowledge the flash mob during Saturday night's show, asking fans "Who of you was in that flash mob?" and mouthing thank you.

PRINCETAGRAM! PRINCE Officially Joins Instagram! Flash Mob Set For Oakland!


PRINCE is officially on Instagram! Or PRINCETAGRAM if you please! The account has been active for just over 24 hours and has almost 40 pictures up.

The fact that they were able to get the name PRINCE makes it somewhat official, although who really is running it? So far, there are one of a kind pictures up plus some taken by Madion Dube and Kevin Mazure.

If your remember, PRINCETAGRAM was an idea on Jimmy Fallon's show.

The Instagram account debuted the same day as "FALLINLOVE2NITE" with Zooey Deschanel was released by EPIC. Connect the dots.

A flash mob is also planned this week for Oakland before PRINCE & 3RDEYEGIRL are set to perform in Oakland at the sold out Fox Theatre.

You can check out what and where and some dances they will do at the mob right HERE.-DocFB

Diagnosis: Fallon lost at table tennis. What was on the line was the rights to PRINCETAGRAM, which Jimmy forfeited.

Tickets for Oakland's PRINCE & 3RDEYEGIRL Saturday March 15th show went on sale at 10:30 P.M. Pacific time and at the same moment, the ticketmaster server site it was on along with Fox Theatre's site crashed simultaneously.

Tickets were on sale HERE!!

If any additional shows go on sale, we will update the post.

These shows come on the heels of a nearly 4 hour show of epic proportions in Hollywood last Saturday night.-DocFB

Diagnosis: Oaktown, we knew U was funky!!!!


Is Green Day Doing A Secret Show In The Bay Area?

We think Green Day might be up to their secret show ways again.

Last month, the band played an announced "Secret Show" in Southern California.

This was posted within the past hour on Green Day Authority:

If you are a member of the Idiot Club and you live in the Oakland, California area, you might be in luck.  The Idiot Club is giving out 20 free tickets to the first 20 people to email them to attend the "Bay Area Music Fan Appreciation Event" going on tonight.

"We can't tell you exactly where, we can't tell you exactly why, but if you're 21 years old or older and available tonight in Oakland, CA from 8PM-12AM PDT you may get a chance to attend the Bay Area Music Fan Appreciation Event.

Hmm.  The Idiot Club is Green Day's official website fan club..  GDA did a search and found there are no real events called the Bay Area Music Fan Appreciation Event scheduled for tonight.

So if you are a Green Day fan and were not one of the first 20 to email them, let's hope there will be a ticket sale for the others.

The show they did last month was very heavy on new material.-DocFB

Diagnosis:  This Time, IT Pays To Be An Idiot


Kevin Smith Gets Kicked Off Plane For Being Too Fat

Kevin Smith was kicked off a Southwest plane after being told he was too fat to fly and a flight risk.

Kevin was flying out of Oakland back to Burbank and was already seated when he was kicked off the plane.  Kevin took to his Twitter account and sent off a slew of attacks on the airline and the embarrassment that followed. 

They did offer Kevin a $100 dollar voucher for his trouble and Kevin said they chastised the women next to him as well for not buying an extra seat even though Kevin said he was not a risk. 

Kevin took another Southwest flight out of there and pointed out he flew out to Oakland and flew back to Burbank so does not understand what the pilots deal is.

Kevin will be addressing this on his podcast tonight.  Wonder how soon until they start weighing people before they get on a flight or ask for your weight description when purchasing tickets.  Bet it happens soon.  But if you have a bomb in your underpants, hey, step right up and take your seat.-Dr.FB

Ironically enough, Southwest responded to Kevin on their Twitter account  saying they were sorry for his experience.
