    Prince in the tent? What the fuck are you guys talking about? First of all, it would never, ever, ever fucking happen cause the tent can't accomodate nearly as many people as the main stage, and second of all what is the possible advantage other than being surrounded by sweaty dancing fucks?

    Sorry, but please keep the insanely awesome headliners on the main stage where they belong and I can watch on the big ol' screens without being crammed in elbow to elbow with a bunch of bastards. Also, with the exception of a few glitches this past year there's no comparison between the sound output on the main stage vs. Sahara. Sahara sounds great and everything, but we're talking about the motherfucker that KILLED the Superbowl halftime show like nobody has in years. I think he'd probably be the biggest act Coachella has ever had (arguably, of course). There's no way he's playing in a fucking tent.

    I completely agree. That and that he doesn't fit the vibe of the Sahara Tent. The reason why Madonna played it that one year was because she was touring on a disco inspired dance album.

    First of all--person, specifically Suprefan. Second of all--maybe you're right, I dunno. I didn't see anything in his post to indicate that he was making a funny, and I think Supre does have a tendency to want to see everything in the Sahara. His proposal sounded serious to me. Supre, come straighten this shit out. Rage, do you have any reason to think that he was joking?

    Supre knows that not even Prince could convince GV to set up the Stage to be his symbol.

    i think i could buy into this Sahara thing. If Prince was just going to do a straight 45min-an hour ass shakin', house quakin' set minus the ballads (as sad as that makes me as i write this to eliminate any chance of "The Beautiful Ones") that would have the continuity of a dj set, the Sahara would be the place to blow one's mind like that. A special Prince mix done live by Prince...mmmmmmm!

    Yeah, I mean it would be great if you like being crammed into the hot as fuck Sahara with all the Sahara folks and having one of the biggest artists in the world reduced to a Madonna set for a much smaller crowd... but why would GV ever do that? Prince isn't Madonna goddammit, he's an actual musician. You put that motherfucker on the main stage and you let him rock the entire fucking polo field.

    true, true. BUT, if he was going to do the Sahara ala Madonna/Daft Punk, it could possibly rival the DP performance in hugeness and vibe. Main stage is where he should be out of demand crowd wise...show wise, i think the Sahara could have a special edge i would want to see (bias alert: i have seen Prince more than a few times).

    Right, I getcha and everything, but the Madonna performance was a debacle (not Sahara's fault of course) and DP, well, they aren't REALLY musicians, and Madonna's a fucking lip syncher playing music 20 years too young for her. And I don't say that to take away from what DP does--I fucking love them--but we've all seen how directly they lift their samples, and you just can't compare them to Prince. Prince needs a big motherfucking stage with a big motherfucking band and some big motherfucking screens so that I can watch his ass with some breathing room.

    Although, if putting him in the Sahara meant that he'd play Partyman and Trust, I'd say fuck it.

    Prince does not need the big anything. He could just be in your living room with a guitar or piano and it would be one of the best things you experienced live. The comparison to DP and Madonna isn't one of musical ability, but of the ability to put on a huge show. The "real musician" debate can go on for a while, but i think the essence is to constuct a decent song regardless of the tools you use. DP can construct an evil sounding muther fucker from patches, samples, and whtaever. Madonna does have some songwriting credits in there. Not just anyone off the street can get with talented songwiters and musicians and create some great pop songs. To just diss her music career seems a bit haterish.

    In minor defense of Madonna in the Sahara, what little i saw of her show was actually pretty good (sound and show). i think it was total bullshit she started so late and was not going to miss anything else to see her show out (hence only being there for 3 songs). If she wasn't late, i think her reputation here might not be as bad as it is.

    I actually do think Confessions is a good album, but the whole choreographed dance routines and backup dancers is pretty fucking lame and yeah who knows what people would be saying if she didn't show up late.

    I wasn't dismissing her entire music career--I was dismissing her at that time. And regardless, Madonna on her best day was still not the kind of talent that Prince represents. She's a pop princess--Prince was pop music with soul. Also, he can play fucking instruments, I think that counts a long way. How much of Madonna's actual music did she write, anybody have any idea? To the best of my knowledge she mostly buys all her tracks, I never thought of her as a singer/songwriter too much.

    No, Prince does not "need" the big stage in the sense that he needs it, I mean WE need him to be on the big stage. Fuck what Prince needs. I'm going to have some sweaty pilled-up cunts make me have to bust their mouths open because they won't stop fucking bumping into me in a packed ass tent. But this is all irrelevant--GV would never, ever, ever put Prince in the tent, it would be insane.

    i agree that Madonna is not in Prince's league. You got me wondering and i was suprised to find out how many songs Madonna has songwriting credits for through the wonder of wikipedia. Before she was a solo artist, she played drums in a band. Lately she's been playing (nothing complex) a guitar. i think she has an excellent ear and can smell a great producer a world away. i watched her part for Live Earth and she really does know how to put on a big stage show. Outside of the performing, she does come off as a humorless bore though.

    You're right about the Coachella needs for such a big draw as Prince. Most people going to a Prince headlined event will e seeing him for the first time and in no way will miss it (same goes for those who have seen him before). If i was going to take the crowd factor out of it and it was a choice of best location, i'd choose the Sahara for sound and potentially cool stage set up. The only way to realistically do a Sahara thing is to have another huge draw playing the main stage (can't even think of who that would be.)

    Actually I'm kidding, i think he should be melted.

    If that happens, don't forget to recycle.

    And this is another individual that does not even come remotely close to Prince's calibur.

    How many mouths do you think would be open after he played "The Beautiful Ones" on the main stage at sunset?
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.
