    does anyone think they will be douchenozzles about umbrellas for tonite's show? the venue website DOES NOT list them as a prohibited item, but i've been fukked by some "discretionary" bullshit before.

    any ideas? i mean, we're in the middle of a massive winter storm, you'd think they would get it, right?

    Bring a cheap umbrella, if you have one, I guess. They were about as lax as Oracle can be for security, last night, so I doubt that you'll have a huge problem. There were no pat downs, so if you see them making a fuss, just hide it on your person.

    Geno- Damn man that bitch was crazy haha The girlfriend of the guy next to me killed the vibe I was on for one of the songs by telling me I was standing in front of her boyfriends seat in a bitchy way, but I looked next to me and there was nowhere for me to go because everyone seemed to have moved over while dancing. People are so dumb :-(

    Your being ungrateful. You got to see him perform and PLURed with boardies. I'm only able to live the moment by everyone's postings.
    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.

    of course I went full retard, I had just danced to a three hour prince funk out.

    also, too bad about the aftershow. i had heard from a bunch of people around me that it was going down.

    Wow! Nice set list! I'm glad you got Take Me With U. Certain boardies were losing their shit at Roskilde when he played it. One of my favorite songs.

    Last night I dreamed he played The Beautiful Ones....

    funk out for sure. and, i take back whatever neg connotations i made previously about Larry Graham. that guy can fucking thump it! he was so awesome during the Sly medley. oh, and he didn't open. Prince came on at about 8:40 and started the party. even though i wasn't yet in my seat, i still preferred it. he ended (finally) at 11:40...fucking 3 hours (thereabouts...not subtracting the breaks, but whatevs).

    highlights:
    1) Prince brought a woman on stage to dance with him and he said, "she ain't Kim Kardashian!!" (and she brought it too!);
    2) Prince's guitar playing. he really is one of the best and i really love hearing the influence Jimi has had on him (and the totally gold Strat.....want!);
    3) Prince coming out in all gold, with shimmery gold platform boots. just awesome. the furry white boots in the 2nd encore was kind of funny/silly;
    4) Prince playing the guitar with one hand and the piano with the other
    5) the dance party on stage with like 20 fans during Cool
    6) Sheila E, Sheila E, Sheila E....i love her. she played nearly the entire set and was on the drum kit for the final encore. she is just a remarkable musician. her drumming is so forceful and, just awesome. and the chemistry between her and Prince is heart-warming
    7) Prince was in a fantastic mood right from the start = massive house party!

    There is, and will always ever be, only one Prince!

    Setlist:
    The Love We Make
    Take Me With U
    Guitar
    Anotherloverholenyohead/Rock Lobster (guitar solo tease)
    Shhh
    --> Sheila joins P
    Glamorous Life (fantastic, but her Coachella walk-on was the performance of her lifetime..untouchable)
    Controversy
    Love Bizarre
    Nothing Compare 2 U
    She's always in My Hair
    Welcome 2 America
    Let's Go Crazy
    Delirious
    1999
    Little Red Corvette

    --> Larry Graham and P
    Everyday People
    Alphabet St
    amazing fucking jamming
    Thank You For Letting Me Be Myself

    Purple Rain

    Kiss

    His piano was programmed to play samples of these (mostly) teases (so cool!) - Under the Cherry Moon (Instr.) / Do Me Baby / I Wanna Be Your Lover / Nasty Girl / When Doves Cry / TMBGITW / I Would Die 4 U / Darling Nikki

    Pop Life
    Raspberry Beret

    -then after at least 10 minutes of the house lights being up and everyone pouring out of the building, he came back with:

    I had sold my monday tickets last minute, as none of us could go. Wed didn't work, so thankfully a Thursday was added.

    And don't worry, there will be more. He said last night, multiple times, that they'd be back real soon. I can bet a few club shows.

    But, if he were to do a Warfield, would the prices be reasonable?

    This was my first Prince show, and seriously, I will make sure it is not my last.

    The vibe was incredible, gave me faith in going to concerts again. After going to so many lackluster shows, and leaving wondering why I paid for parking, why I drove all the way, waited through the opener, enough was enough.

    Until last night.

    The second Prince came out, I had forgotten about the 35$ parking, about the rush hour traffic in the rain, waiting in the rain in a button shirt for half an hour trying to get us tickets, everything was a blur when he came on stage.

    For three hours, I had no work week, no school work, nothing. Nothing but incredible music, an incredible performer (believe the hype) and a crowd that was just as ecstatic or more than I. The people next to us kept having to sit down and fan themselves. You know shit's getting funky when you can't even stand properly

    Thank you all for getting me out there to see this act, and thanks to Prince for making it worth seeing. It's refreshing to see an act this powerful, this entertaining, and just damn fun!

    ...Now where's the next show?
