With only 1 show left in Australia, Prince performed 2 shows since his last main concert in Brisbane, one an afterjam that we hear was quite epic, and a 2nd secret show.

At the Brisbane afterjam, PRINCE & The NPG performed a funk-infused version of "Mutiny" with versions of "Insatiable", "Scandalous" and a full version of "Adore" thrown in. If that wasn't enough, he also performed "$", "Song Of The Heart" and "Days Of Wild" for good measure. That does not even include him performing "She's Always In My Hair" at the main show.

Then, Monday night, PRINCE performed a secret club show in Melbourne. You either got DJ Rashida's Tweet about the show or were there as we are told only 70 to 80 people were in attendance for the show. Looking at the set list, Prince performed "Love 2 The 9's" "An Honest Man", "Tambourine" "Sexy Dancer" "Strange Relationship" a cover of "Oustanding" and "Rude Boy" performed by NPG singer Shelby J.

His 8th and final "Welcome 2 Australia" concert is May 30th.  No Afterjam has been announced yet and we know the people who missed the secret show and afterjam (for shame) are hoping for 1 more afterjam so that won't have to live with regret til PRINCE & The NPG come back to Australia again.

These shows sound amazing and a LOT of fun.  Let's hope there is more to DJ Rashida's tweet about a soundboard recording of the Brisbane afterjam somehow getting out.-DocFB

Van Halen did a 15 song set at the Los Angeles Forum last night. It was the final dress rehearsal and featured thousands of their friends and family.

It was supposed to be a "secret show" but was one of the worst kept secrets as we and others leaked the info shortly before noon yesterday.  Kool & The Gang opened the show as they will for the tour and they brought the good time funk.  It seems like a weird combo for a tour but it works.

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
