What time does the support act tend to be on?
He's been playing 2 and a half hour sets.
the other night it was M.I.A., i think they probably were on about 7ish?
mutya and beverley knight have done some slots as well
The opening act for me consisted of eating a lukewarm hotdog on the side of some installation art piece due to the fact that EVERY restaurant had a massive queue outside it.
Tip: Get there really early.
it would seem that the security/management haven't really worked out what they're doing yet.
On the way on and out we were held up by the fact that they only had one entrance/exit open which was a bit daft considering the 25,000+ in attendance.
Queues of between 50-150 outside every restaurant/pub....in the end we went into this sushi place which wasn't quite as busy in order to buy Asahi as the pub queues were 10 deep.
That aside, great venue, but, it's well worth arriving early if you plan on eating there, etc
we're eating beforehand but good to know for drinks
prince was on stage 8.45-10.45 give or take
I had a great time when I went.
He didn't sing Sexy Motherfucker or Get Off though, I guess he wasn't feeling very horny.
(my gf is the fan). he did controversy and purple rain and a medley of some of his hornier stuff - i suppose his religion means he doesn't get too into it these days (he may have done get off though)
from Prince and surprised to say it was fecking awesome ! truly magical, even with fat boy Elton butchering The Long & Winding Road (love the pat butcher rat's tale earring). we got Cream, If i was yr gfriend, kiss, when doves cry, u got the look, red corvette, aswell as p/rain and a medley of sign/raspberry/alphabet st. wasn't expecting much but sound was excellent on lower level (blck 106) too. the diddy man has still got It (live at least).
and played 845-1040 ish
Is the O2 arena just Prince's house now or something?
then it is handed over to led zep etc
I heard that.
