    I think the thing I learned from this is that if Prince is playing multiple nights and you can only go to one show you should not choose the first one.

    There's no way his hip was 100% healed when he was at Coachella. He jumped up on a piano in Oakland. At Coachella he swayed a lot.

    he did the piano jump last night as well. maybe he did that dance solo during Kiss to show off his new hip.

    what a showman!

    I'm trying to remind myself how happy I was at Monday's show and how it was totally worth it to...

    extend my LA weekend and miss a day of work
    pay for 2 more flights--one to Oakland and one home the next day
    fly with double ear infections even though the LA ER doctor said not to
    be 10 times as sick and hurt as I would've otherwise been

    And I probably could've pulled it off if I hadn't starting reading this damn thread yesterday (and now even worse, today) and found out how horribly screwed we got on Monday. Are you fucking kidding having that huge of a chasm between one show and the two others? Jesus. And to top it all off, this show was supposed to make up for missing him at Coachella, something I've deeply regretted for 3 years.

    Guess I'm headed to another Prince show as soon as possible?! I don't even know right now... Pretty bummed.

    To be fair, Monday's show had:

    Uptown, Raspberry Beret, Cream, COOL, U Got the Look, The Glamorous Life, Soul Sacrifice w/ Carlos Santana, Rude Boy (Rihanna cover), A Love Bizarre, Controversy, Purple Rain, Kiss, If I Was Your Girlfriend, Scandalous, Bambi as the highlights.

    He rarely plays Bambi.

    Yea Monday was pretty great. I think I had more fun on Monday, but Tuesday's set was way more upbeat.

    Yeah, it was amazing. Which is why I totally wish I hadn't read subsequent reviews (set lists, mostly).

    Oh well. It was a fantastic show and so "that's that, Mattressman".

    Monday was by no means a bad show, I just felt like Thursday was far better.

    I don't think I'd trade "Let's Go Crazy", "1999", "LRC", and "Corvette" for "Bambi" regardless of rarity.

    That's like saying "yeah but he played BATDANCE!"
    "All of you coachella 'regulars' have nasty boy pussies and itchy dick4's on your asses.
    Why don't you all make like a tree and get chopped down and die. You all have been dreadfully mean to me.
    I Hate you. All of you. None of you will ever get to see a womans chest meat or finger blast hott cougies like me.
    Fuck you all. Consider this my resignation.

    I totally would trade Little Red Corvette for Batdance. Actually "Trust" was the best song off that soundtrack. Fact.

    Yeah, seriously we got fucked on Monday. It just sucks when you paying $100 a ticket and felt like you got shortchanged.

    But at least we got a nice Santana cameo. That partially makes up for it.

    ha, i love that rationalization.

    i've seen him show up for a Lyrics Born show at the Indy. Santana lives here and is a walk-on whore.

    Well as a new bay area resident, it was new for me.

    Thanks for ruining the one thing I could feel special about, Drew!

    If you go to enough shows, there's a bunch of weird SF-based musicians that you'll run into. I've happened upon Tom Waits, Jello Biafra, Davey Havok (one of these things is not like the other), etc... at shows that made zero sense for them to be there (in my mind, at least).

    i'm sorry, man. i know that came off totally bitchy, but it was more of a slam on Carlos than an attempt to squash your fun. hopefully he will show up at a little gig you are at sometime soon.

    EDIT: adding to what Brad said....oddly enough Mike Patton showed up at a Kid Koala show (when he did The Slip stuff) at the Indy a little while back. Les Claypool is another that you'll likely encounter at some point.

    No worries, I was just kidding.

    But these are among the reasons why I love living in the Bay Area so much, even if its going to make me broke!

    I'd have been way more excited for Batdance than Little Red Corvette. (I love that song but could do without the 5 minutes of clapping "slow down" that he does every time).
