    I keep hearing the opening bars of 1999 in my head over and over again.

    Great performance, kind of disappointing set list. Could have used a few more up-tempo hits.

    My, my, someone's impatient. Warning: I suck at reconstructing set lists.

    Firstly, Larry Graham, from what I saw, mostly played Sly & the Family Stone songs. Heh.

    Prince played in on a song with the opener, at about 8:15. Came back on stage a bit later to kick off his set, and opened with:

    Uptown/Raspberry Beret/Cream medley, noting (for Cream): I was looking in the mirror when I wrote this song. Pretty fucking awesome opening to the show. I was going a little nuts when I heard him start with Uptown.

    Cool/Let's Work

    U Got the Look
    The Glamorous Life - Sheila E (looking HOT and better than she did last year or at Coachella)

    At some point Carlos Santana joined them on stage, I lost track of the set list here. Shelby J took over vocals for a while. She was looking amazing as well. Killer outfit - like a purple corset with black feathers and shit. And we thought *we* overdressed. (I can't recall what song this was). "Girl, you better sing."

    A Love Bizarre
    Controversy (with a touch of Housequake)
    Purple Rain
    Kiss (crazy Prince "gyrating hip" solo -- seriously like 3 minutes of grinding)
    If I Was Your Girlfriend

    (... this is where I lost track of my set list)... but I will say that I think these were relatively rare songs, that I didn't know the names of off the top of my head - will have to look them up later -- and also mixed in was what I'm told was a Rihanna cover (Rude Boy?).

    Adore (right before house lights came up)

    Came back for an encore, which was part of Bambi, and Dreamer


    Nevermind, you posted while I was posting, Scott. :P

    A few other things:
    - When Prince came out with Larry Graham, he was wearing honest to god furry raver leg warmers. PLURince.
    - He only had 1 costume change during his own set, went from a white outfit to gold-ish colored shirt and the most dazzling glittery pair of tight gold pants. Seriously, you could see them sparkling all the way from the nosebleed seats.
    - Really good crowd, at least around us. People were up and dancing and singing most of the set. Plenty of people who knew the less popular songs.
    - Lots of obvious stuff missing from the set list, but com'on we got Bambi and Adore and If I Was Your Girlfriend, all of which I love

    I would guess he played about 1h45m not counting a couple of breaks in the set.

    Needed way more hits but was still an incredible night of music.
    If I'd never seen him before and paid $150 to see him Tonite I would be pissed at the endless jamming songs well outweighing the classics.

    I don't know man.. I saw him at Roskilde, where he mostly stuck to hits, and it was TONS of fun but definitely not the best Prince show. I liked tonight a lot. But I left wondering, where was 1999? Let's Go Crazy? He plays those almost every show. Since this was not my first Prince show, I was pretty happy with what we got.

    Seriously, I was over the moon about Adore, If I Was Your Girlfriend, A Love Bizarre, and Uptown.

    Edited: and yes, Drew, there was plenty of jamming out on guitar. That's probably why the set list looks short. Some of those songs were very extended versions.

    There was also plenty of excellent dancing towards the end of the set. His new hip seems to be working out for him.

    Oh, and I was too far away to take pictures on my camera phone. They were very lenient on the security checks, so people going on Wednesday might want to take cameras. They did not do any pat downs, only a quick peek into bags.

    Didn't he? Rumor was that he'd had one right before Coachella '08. When we saw him at Roskilde, he was dancing a lot more than at Coachella, and while I'd say he dance less tonight, it was more aggressive dancing. (Seriously - several minutes - of hip gyrations, sliding around on his knees, etc)

    Don't get me wrong, he looks amazing. Dude's in his 50's, come on.

    PRINCE!!!!!!

    That show was amazing in its own right. Santana coming out was really fucking cool, Prince giving him his guitar to play was even cooler. The opening act was pretty fucking good.

    Nosebleed seats arent actually that bad and it helps when the stage is right in the middle. Prince was sooo swagger and had a fucking DANCE INTERLUDE where he stood in the middle with just a spotlight on him and he fucking did ALL kinds of crazy ass dancing. Some interpretive shit in there and he pulled it off so well. almost like his version of Vogue.

    The Symbol Stage is pretty awesome and i love all the light changes and projections on there. Our seats were at a perfect fucking angle. Sound was good for the most part. Sheila E was on fire and his backing band is always tight.

    But...

    TOO MANY SONGS SUNG BY HIS BACKUP SINGERS. Im tired of those ballads. Seriously, theyre kind of a buzzkill.

    Heidi, what was it that Prince said, "I got too many hits! I cant play them all". He really wasnt kidding, I mean I know he has a vast catalog but there are certain songs Ive come to find as staples of the setlist and very disappointed that I didnt get to hear them. I really didnt like the way it ended.

    On another topic: How can I find a way into that wednesday show?

    I just looked at the MSG shows setlists and I'd be kind of disappointed with the one you guys got tonight compared to those. But hey, it's still Prince.
