Prince in Minneapolis

Prince is playing First Ave this weekend for the first time in 20 years. (For those that don't know, First Ave is where Purple Rain was filmed and is one of the top three clubs in America.) I'm trying to figure out a way to make it back for this show, which will probably redefine the word "amazing." [via]


In case it comes up, here's a link to Lake Minnetonka to avoid any possible embarrasement or confusion.

hm,I don't know if this is true or not, but It's gonna be freaking awesome if it is. I'm going to the Target Center show and I'm excited as hell..

I just got an update from G: he's most definitely playing First Ave..

Rex, fwiw, this will likely just be a jam session like his old Paisley after parties.

i wouldn't expect many actual songs, especially his classics.

still should be fun though.

Actually, I bet the actual after-party will be like that. First Ave will be packed with classics.

Rex, actually it was pretty much a jam session mixed with a few medleys.

Girls & Boys
Feel 4 U->Controversy
3 Handed Woman
Down by the Riverside (horn section instrumental)
Broken Heart Again
Love Is a Losing Game (Amy Winehouse cover sung by Shelby J)
Love Changes (Shelby on vocals)
Thank You->Hair->Sing a Simple Song->Everyday People->Alphabet Street

but it was still incredible :)

Yeah, I didn't realize it was going to start so late. 2:45 AM? That's crazy. (But not as crazy as Let's Go Crazy.)
