As we posted yesterday, PRINCE & 3rdEyegirl have been rehearsing an instrumental version of "Even Flow" by Pearl Jam for The Myth this Saturday in Minneapolis.

This version features a guitar duel between PRINCE & Donna Grantis that morphs into Aretha Franklin's version of "Rock Steady" before reprising the end vamp of "Even Flow".

Well, as promised, we were able to grab a snippet of PRINCE & 3rdEyeGirl rehearsing "Even Flow" by Pearl Jam, which you can listen to below!

Bobby Z. announced via Twitter this morning that he will be playing "Purple Rain" with PRINCE & 3rdEyeGirl Saturday at the Myth in Minneapolis!

In 2011, Bobby Z. suffered a heart attack and PRINCE reached out to the former Revolution member through DrFunkenberry and stated that he wants Bobby to get better and play "Purple Rain" with him one more time. The icon stated then:

"Nobody plays drums on the song "Purple Rain" like Bobby. Never flashy or loud, he plays like a slow burn love song. Bobby's way of playing made each live rendition of the song better than the last."

We contacted Bobby Z. regarding his announcement and he had this to say:

"I am honored to be asked by Prince & the incredible 3rdEyeGirl 2 play Purple Rain with them!"

There are rumors (According to John Bream, we started them) that The Myth will be one long show instead of 2. So far, it is still 2 shows and we do not know yet which one Bobby is playing. Both? You don't want to miss this!

Much Love & Light to Bobby Z., PRINCE, & 3rdEyeGirl.-DocFB

PRINCE & 3rdEyeGirl Back At Paisley Park! “Even Flow”

Prince 3rd Eye Girl

Prince & 3rdEyeGirl are back at Paisley Park and are getting ready for The Myth this Saturday!

Not relying on the RAVE reviews 3rdEyeGirl got on LIVE OUT LOUD tour, PRINCE sent them a message early Tuesday morning; To arrange an INSTRUMENTAL version of the Peal Jam Classic "Even Flow". (um...WOW!)

Sure to be a staple in their NEXT run of shows, this version features a guitar duel between Donna and PRINCE that morphs into Aretha Franklin's version of "Rock Steady" before reprising the end vamp of "Even Flow".

Our spies have been lurking around the Park and HOPEFULLY, we will have a snippet to share before this Saturday when PRINCE & 3rdEyeGirl storm the stage at The Myth! (This. Would. Be. Awesome!)

There have been rumors circulating that the scheduled 2 shows might be combined into one LONG 3-4 hour JAM! PRINCE has a LOT of musician friends in Minneapolis so let's keep our PLECTRUM's crossed.

For now, it is still listing 2 shows:

Show one tickets

Show two tickets

Stay tuned!-DocFB

Diagnosis: Sorry...everything after "Even Flow" is a blur!
