“Thumbs Up For Rock & Roll” For Prince & Possible Tour Opening Acts

Music icon Prince sure has a sense of humor. Along with a musical message to The Time/Original 7ven’s Terry Lewis, he sent the video above. This video is too funny. “Thumbs up for rock & roll?” all right then.

When we first saw this video, I was like Waa?…. but by the end, it had us laughing.

Not only was this sent to Terry Lewis but also Paul Peterson aka St. Paul who was in the Prince band, The Family, who now call themselves FDeluxe.

We chatted briefly with Paul about things and will have some very cool stuff coming your way soon, including that new rehearsal jam that PRINCE sent his and our way.  Seriously, we cannot wait to give it to you.  Sometime this week, we promise!!!!!

BTW, make sure to LIKE Fdeluxe on Facebook and also make sure to give their official web site Fdeluxe.com some love as well.  Will they open up for PRINCE on his upcoming Welcome 2 Australia Tour?

Speaking of opening acts, we have heard of some other possible opening acts for dates on the tour;

Delilah and Janelle Monae just MIGHT be in the purple live experience.

What did U think of the video message?

Who do you want to open for PRINCE?

Where’s Fluffy?

What did Terry Lewis think?

2 be continued and answered……sooner than U think!-DocFB

    Beside his actual words, there was so much energy flowing through that little boy’s body, he couldn’t stand still, LoL; Ah, success–magnificent!

    Prince is a very, very special soul, besides the pinnacle of his art.

    Fdeluxe would be a great opener but I think a Revolution reunion opener would be spectacular!!! Don’t forget to come to Christchurch after Australia and say “hi” will ya Prince??

    Haha one of my favorite videos on the internet. The autotuned version of this is so cute aswell.

    It would be AMAZING to have Fdeluxe and The Original 7 open for Prince.

    Other than that Janelle Monae is always a great choice. That girl is fantastic live!

    fDeluxe opening for him would be cool, but cooler would be The Revolution reunion tour with Prince on vocals.
