PRINCE & 3RDEYEGIRL just opened up their Hit & Run Part II UK tour in Birmingham playing a plethora of hits along with "What's My Name" a hardcore fan hit and the unreleased "Electric Intercourse" and "Empty Room".
It is being reported that during "Electric Intercourse" he would just say "Electric" over again but with no intercourse. Hmm.
I just stood 15 feet from Prince as he sang ELECTRIC INTERCOURSE for the first time in 30 years. What is life?

The show was also filmed professionally with multi-cameras via various comments on the Facebook fan page.
Everyday I'm reminded more and more of why I love @3RDEYEGIRL so much

PRINCE & 3RDEYEGIRL performed 2 shows at Ronnie Scott's in London late last night/this morning that is being described as one of the most intimate concerts the icon has ever done. Imagine him performing in your living room. People were that close.
André Rigedahl was there for the second show and had this to say about his experience:
Just over the moon of happiness and joy and live for music!
PRINCE & 3RDEYEGIRL invited us to their living room at Ronnie Scotts and it was a beautiful, intimate and intense experience. And I had the best seat in the house.
They played incredible versions and jams. Including "Nasty Girl" and "The Love We Make" and "Liatach".
He played keyboard for the most part and also did an amazing bass solo borrowing Ida's bass.
12h of queuing - very intense and exhausting but so worth it in the end.
The set list as I remember it.
They started playing "Stratus"
followed by a beautiful version of Liathach which Prince played with his eyes closed
Other songs played as I remember and not necessary in the right order was "The Max" with a "oooooh Funky Londooon” chant and Prince on bass with "Something In The Water (Does Not Compute)"
"Nasty Girl" evolved into a long "Nasty Girl Jam” session with solos from Ida & Donna. A love Bizzare had some really nice saxophone.
"Superstition" -a looong super funky version
Most of the set was Prince on keys, 3EG and Marcus on Sax.
As one of the encores he wanted to play guitar which was all set up and ready to go in the middle of the stage but the sound of his main mic was to high in the center, resulting in feedback and the sound guy could not fix it so instead he went back to the keyboard.
Prince also did some of the sound adjustments and fine-tunings himself during the show.
The played for about 2h and kept playing well after the 3am official closing time.
We also heard he performed "The Whole Of The Moon" by The Waterboys. What???
It seems Prince did pretty much stick the boards and bass the entire night, taking a break from guitar as Marcus Anderson solo'd on "Purple Rain" for good measure...or 17 measures...if you're funky!
Celebrities at the show were Adele, Noel Gallagher (Oasis), Cara Delevingne & Rita Ora.-DocFB

PRINCE & 3RDEYEGIRL just played a show at the Shepherd's Bush Empire in London and from what we have been told, it is one of the best concert's people have ever seen! Did we expect anything less?
Mako Bones, who was at the Electric Ballroom's shows had this to say about tonight's show!
Ok tonight was off the hook! 2 1/2 hours!
I queued for 6 hours to see the bomb! Even George Clinton was in the building in a suit so blinging white it was radiating from the balcony!
Gig started at 8 with 3RDEYEGIRL coming center stage and introducing themselves and gave a speech on wanting to connect with you without seeing your phones. Right on sisters!
Then the funk n roll broke loose!
PRINCE along with the NEW POWER GENERATION, 3RDEYEGIRL, and JANELLE MONAE closed out a 3 night affair at the Mohegan Sun Arena with quite a bit of flair.
The purple icon took the stage with Janelle earlier in the night to perform their duet "Givin' Em What They Love" and he was rolled out on a dolly!

Justin Timberlake's "20/20 Experience" tour kicks off tonight in Brooklyn, New York at the Barclay's center. The set list for the entire tour has been revealed! Who would do that??? Why Justin of course!
Inside the tour book that is being sold, is the set list that will be followed for the entire tour. Yup. No changes it seems. At least not for the start of the tour.
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!!!
