Don't suppose anyone has any spares going?
Did anyone get any? Has to be one of the shows of the year!
It was absolutely phenomenal! Prince was running around the stage and dancing like someone half his age. 3rdEyeGirl are fantastic musicians and playing along with Prince the band is ridiculously good. It really was hit after hit and felt more like a party than a gig. Highlight for me was the 10 minute rendition of Purple Rain towards the end of the two hour set when Prince looked like he was having so much fun and kept extending the end of the song as it became a mass sing along.
I balked at the price but after the opening salvo of Let's Go Crazy / Take Me With U / Raspberry Beret / U Got the Look i'd decided it was most definitely worth it.
Two hours straight of all the hits, incredible band, enrapturing stage presence. Nothing compares really.
He's one of the few people who justifies arena prices.
Except it's arena prices in (relatively) tiny venue. Was pretty much perfect.
Didn't really believe any of it was actually happening, to be honest, until he did Purple Rain. The whole thing was just amazing. 3rd Eye Girl were great...
Beautiful Ones on piano was lovely, the fact that he just tossed out a verse and chorus for When Doves Cry and then moved on. What's this song
Spent half the time singing along/dancing, the other half just gawping and thinking he was giving me the eye.
This was just ludicrously good. Ludicrously.
Was thinking it might get cut short as it took ages for people to clear to the venue.
He played from 22:30 - 00:30 I think.
I thought the Purple one could do no wrong but he fucked up Let's Go Crazy which was pretty funny, stepped on the wrong pedal which made his guitar massively loud, then dropped his pick. He stopped the tune pretty quickly after that. Haha.
Amazing show though, couple of bellends round me who were massive hulks who refused to budge an inch. Who goes to see Prince and doesn't move in the slightest?
He's mezmerising though, could barely take my eyes off him.
I was with a few friends and we were all losing our shit, but there were a fair few people around us who were just stood stock still - I guess if that's how you enjoy it as a show, then that's fair enough. Didn't detract anything from the show, though.
Was surprised at the relatively muted reaction to Purple Rain - kinda thought that would be the ABSOLUTE HIGHLIGHT, and it was awesome, just didn't get the reaction I would've expected. I didn't care.
so what you're saying is:
