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 dress rehearsal show for their upcoming tour last night at the Forum in Los Angeles. They performed classic hits and new ones like "Tattoo" from their latest album.
"Tattoo" is the latest single and doing quite well on the Rock Charts. Check out this live performance and let us know if it provides more power live.-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.
