    Just saw the purple one, and he rocked the house. /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    His new stuff sounds like James Brown/Parlament/Prince mixed together. I was a Prince fan from high school, and am glad he's finally touring behind a good album, not the crazy stuff he's put out over the years.

    If you were a fan of the Purple Rain era, you really will enjoy this show. He's one hell of a talented musician, and put on one of the best live shows I have seen.

    And you get a free copy of the new album when you enter the concert. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Yeah, $70 here. But thats better than the $90 folks blew to see Britney Spears lipsync to he own music out of time.

    There were some pissed people after that show. /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif

    If you think that's high, try Fleetwood Mac at $100+ on their current tour /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif

    I do like Prince's new music though. And the current NPG band he's touring with has one of the best horn sections and drummers I've seen. Personally, I think the show he put on, and the quality of the audio/production was worth the $70. But I remember going to shows back in the day for $15-$20 /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif

    For $70 you better get a free album.An you know when a artist is past his prime when you get a free album at his concert. Any of them other pop freaks are so concieted they think they are doing you a favor by just letting you see them in person.At least he was cool enough to give a freebee.
