    YES. I am with that. I think HandBanana is probably driving, but Salah, Sunni & I are definitely BART'ing over.

    No idea what time we're going, yet, but I think we could be there as early as 5:30-6, but now that we have an opener, that doesn't seem necessary.

    We may be there that early (5:30) as well. I have to pick up my tix at will call. They usually handle will call in a decent fashion there, though my experience is only with Warriors/Raiders/A's games.

    I think we will be taking Bart down as well. I would be down for a tailgate as long as its not raining/shitty outside.

    So opener comes on at 7:30. Do we expect Prince to be on around 8:30 or 9:00?

    Its going to be a doozy!

    I'm hoping Prince comes on early, actually, since I want to get HOURS of Prince, and still make the BART train to SF But I'm assuming shows there wrap up way before midnight -- I'm assuming like 11?

    Does anyone know if you walk through metal detectors to get into the arena at shows?

    For Warriors games you do have to walk through metal detectors, however, i think that may be an NBA policy.

    Yesterday at the WWE PPV event (got free tickets for being a seat filler) we did not have to walk through metal detectors.

    i've not ever walked through a metal detector for a show there. they will look into your bag/purse and, sometimes, give you a pat down. it is pretty chill, normally...and i suspect for a Prince show, will follow suit.

    Cool, I've been completely off my face every time I've been there or the Coliseum and can't remember how things work. Trying to decide if flasks are a bad idea.

    PS it's a good thing I am working from home today because I am mostly dancing around the room like a maniac, listening to Prince on headphones. Though this probably wouldn't really phase my coworkers one bit.

    If they knew that it was in the name of Prince they would condone it, no doubt about it. Can't wait for tonight!

    Yeah, I think I'm heading over there around 5:30 tonight. Glad to find out that there will be an opening act.

    I hope he plays Partyman.

    I saw GCS open for Prince in 1997 and they were on fire.
    Of course that was 13 years ago and they were kinda gettin up in years then, so who knows how well tonite will go.

    Ok so it sounds like Salah, Sunni & I should be getting there a little after 6:30.

    Oakland weather looks chilly, but no rain!

    Kylz, Im sure Prince will announce some surprise LA dates soon too.
    I dont think they would lug that odd-shaped stage all the way over here for just 2 shows.

    GCS opened for Prince the night I saw him at MSG in December. They were on point. Came in as a marching band, lol. Played a couple Sly & the Family Stone hits, and Prince even joined them on stage.

    Btw, those of you who haven't met me yet, if you see me, say hi.

    I will be wearing a purple shirt with sequins, purple glasses, purple feathers in my hair, and purple makeup not entirely unlike a drag queen would wear. (And I have curly long red hair).

    I will be with: a guy wearing a purple ruffly thing a la Purple Rain, and a girl wearing a purple hat with feathers and a boa.

    Yea, we kind of like The Purple One.
