    that's highly unlikely. if anything, it will be selections from both nights with 1-2 new ones thrown in. or some badass guest appearance. or, maybe a dance party on stage. or, maybe Sheila E will invite me backstage.

    Monday was very good in some ways, but half the time Prince seemed oblivious to the fact that there was an audience there that didnt pay almost $300 to not hear his biggest hits (and half-assed versions often when he did play them) or to watch his backup singers take over 20 minute swaths of the set with well-performed displays of Who-gives-a-shit-ery.

    I got the feeling that Prince is operating on the notion that everyone is attending every Oracle show.

    Thing is, if last nights show was mostly the same as Monday's I wouldn't care all that much. Instead it feels like we got the short end of the self-indulgent stick. And since it was my GFs first time seeing him, that miffs me.

    Craigslist was swarmed with scalpers who overestimated the Prince market yesterday. Today might be similar, as well.

    That was one of the most incredible shows I've ever seen! He played everything I wanted, especially in the last two encores.

    Great meeting everyone last night as well, good to put faces to some of the screen names I've seen for years. :-)

    I'll try to upload some video soon, I got the whole last encore.


    Handbanana- srsly 35 for parking?? I asked the attendant if I was getting a steak with that haha

    They're back online. Same price. They went offline because VIP sales ended.

    by the way, the most expensive tickets have been lowered to 50% off. So the $500s are $250 and the $250s are $125.

    And they took them offline at 5pm. Could be lowering them again, but I doubt it. I bet e-sales are done.

    I was stoked when the upgrade happened last night and went from upper deck to lower level, but at the same time pissed that the people sitting behind me said "it's common courtesy to sit down...", I stop dancing and turned around and said "It's a prince show, stand up...". Then the girl said under her breath "this is how fights start and people get stabbed"

    I continued to stand and dance the whole show... This isn't an orchestra, it's prince...
