You're in for a great time.
It was actually last Thursday. My bad.

Laz, I'm of like mind.....want to see the last show....but don't want to have it sellout before I'm able to tickets. Because I'm not a cheap fuck like you I guess I'd just go to Stubhub and what not, but I'd still rather avoid that situation.

I was hoping for at least one or two small-venue shows, rather than all at the Forum. I had it all set up in my mind: He'd play a night or two at the Glass House in Pomona, and because I'm so cool and smart, I'd get a pair of tickets for one of them.

Maybe I need to get tickets to another one just in case. It would just suck to wind up at one of those shows like last Friday(?) where he only played like 19 songs.
Considering that the other shows have been close to (or over) 3 hours, that short one might've been an anomaly. Take a look at this setlist, for example: 23 April, 2011 - Prince Vault
Lots of Sheila E too!

He did perform more for the studio audience.....and the set looks like a rather intimate setting too, that would have been a cool setting to see Prince perform in! He did 3 songs during the hour long show.

I was reading about The Black Album on Wiki, and stumbled across this nugget:


"Immediately after the decision to pull The Black Album from stores, the album emerged on the streets in bootleg form, arguably becoming popular music's most legendary bootleg since The Beach Boys aborted 1967 album Smile[7]. Several celebrities, including Shuttlecock's frontmen The Hedge and Boner, cited it as one of their favorite albums of 1988 (Rolling Stone magazine celebrity poll)."

I saw it on twitter. Looks like shows are announced Tuesdays. So check Ticketmaster on those days.

Or you can check LA Weekly or The Scenestar as they have good up to date information on shows.

Nice. So there are rumors swirling that Gwen Stefani will be the special guest tonight. That would be epic. I can't wait!

Eh. She's all right, I like some of her and No Doubt's songs, but I find her more irritating than epic.

/hater

But, regardless, I'm still totally jealous. Have an awesome time tonight!

This is the most generic setlist I've seen yet from this stand.

MEH.

I'd like to hear a full song once in a while, but otherwise I'm pretty damn jealous.

Three songs per Gwen album are excellent. The rest aren't.

MEH for you, awesome, I'm sure, for causal fans....and people that were actually there.

I just posted it for the fuck of it, wasn't really trying to say it was great, meh or otherwise. I was channeling Mrs. Springsteen, really.

I've been checking the setlists for every show, so FWIW I'm not just hating.

But opening with three straight well-known songs is not Prince's usual modus operandi, nor is playing five covers in a row. There are only four songs on that list that I would consider "obscure" or even non-singles, and if you look at his other setlists he usually throws a lot more curveballs.

If I went to see him a second time and got a short, populist show like that I'd be very bummed, even if the tix were only $10.

Hopefully it won't happen again; I'm going to "fly stand-by" this Thursday with all my friends who weren't able to go last time.

I'd enjoy it if that was the set list, cos he's fucking Prince.....but it wouldn't be my preference, certainly.

I just saw him a week ago. I don't want to see a short set of the same stuff I just watched, and to be honest my favorite parts of his show are his long jams, not giving the sheep what they want.
