Just got this tidbit of info sent our way:
3RDEYEGIRL arrived yesterday at Paisley Park and the 1st full rehearsal for the UK shows and more is scheduled for Saturday afternoon!
Local funk band M.P.L.S. (#MPLS) will be jamming at the sound stage of Paisley Park After Dark Saturday night for $30.00. PRINCE and 3RDEYEGIRL will be in attendance and after will be playing NEW music and partying!-DocFB
Diagnosis: There is a lot to be thankful for in 2014. From the new music, the NEW GIRL takeover, the London HIT AND RUN takeover, the Arsenio takeover, magazine covers (Mojo and the New Essence mag you gotta pick up), Liv Warfield's The Unexpected, the announcement of NPG MUSIC PUBLISHING, the annoucement of new music to be released on Warner Bros. plus the remasters of his Warner Bros. catalog including the 30th anniversary of "Purple Rain" this year and owning ALL of the WB masters, plus even more projects are in the works! 2014 is shaping up to be a brand new chapter in already epic career! We are not even at the half way point yet!
Ain't nothing like a purple party because a purple party don't stop! This weekend, Friday March 28th & Saturday March 29th, PRINCE's PAISLEY PARK Studios are being open to the public for a party club atmosphere like no place else from 9 P.M. til 2 A.M.
Last weekend kicked off Paisley Park After Dark as Kirk Johnson's live band played, footage of 3RDEYEGIRL from Montreux was shown and DJ's FundRaiser and Lenka Paris were in the mix.
The flyer was made by LV.
As for this weekend, there will be live music and other goodies as well, plus, since it is Paisley Park, you never know who might show up or what might happen.
The cover is $30 and there will be shuttle service provided this time.
NO PHONES, CAMERAS, OR RECORDING DEVICES WILL BE ALLOWED!
Don't forget to watch the latest PRINCE Spreecast as we will have more info on Paisley Park After Dark and other purple news! Marcus Anderson's new album "Style Meets Substance" is available on iTunes and Amazon.-DocFB
Who won the weekend? Was it Kanye opening up his tour this weekend? Was it Drake? Nope! According to AXS Live, PRINCE and 3RDEYEGIRL won the weekend with the Pajama Dance Party aka "The Breakfast Experience" at Paisley Park!
AXS Live played the "Let's Go Crazy Reloaded" video clip with the story and was nice to see on my TV to be honest.
They made sure to mention that pancakes were served and Ryan was impressed that Dave Chappelle wasn't lying about getting pancakes if you go to PRINCE's house!-DocFB
Diagnosis: AXS LIVE, Ryan Stout, and Marc Cuban, care to come to the Park and play? U know who to contact.....
PRINCE & 3RDEYEGIRL threw the ultimate pajama party at Paisley Park this morning complete with TWO performances, "The Breakfast Experience" remixes, the "Breakfast Can Wait" video AND...yes...pancakes were indeed served!
The night started as a dance party and then Dani Curiel came out to talk about the video "Breakfast Can Wait" with the choreographers in attendance with her as well. The video was played along with the behind the scenes video that was shown after like it was at Monday's party in Hollywood. They did play at least 4 remixes from "The Breakfast Experience" remixed by Joshua Welton.
The pancakes were being sold for $1.00
Then 3RDEYEGIRL took the stage with this musician named PRINCE. You guys hear of him?

The New Power Generation will be opening up the doors of Paisley Park This Saturday October 5th!
This news was broken by City Pages this morning.
Early Saturday morning of July 7th, we get a text asking if we can be at Paisley Park around 3 P.M. for rehearsal. We say yes! Although we didn't arrive til 4:30 P.M., PRINCE & The NPG moved back rehearsal until 7 P.M. for us.
Joshua Welton picks us up from our hotel and sax player BK Jackson jumps in with us as we ride to Paisley Park. Josh says he is gonna drive slow since it is my first time driving with him. Later that night, when we were driving with his wife Hannah Ford-Welton, she asked if "I ever been in a race car before?" 2 different styles for sure!
So me, Joshua, and BK get to the Park and the band is on stage and they all wave to me as Elisa walks by to take her place on stage.
I look to my left and I see PRINCE and his hair behind me at the sound board. They then start to play.
This rehearsal is for one of their 3 Montreux Jazz Festival concerts so, if you do not wish to know set list, do not click or read below!!!
