Usage Discussion of ONLY
The placement of only in a sentence has been a source of studious commentary since the 18th century, most of it intended to prove by force of argument that prevailing standard usage is wrong. After 200 years of preachment the following observations may be made: the position of only in standard spoken English is not fixed, since ambiguity is avoided through sentence stress; in casual prose that keeps close to the rhythms of speech only is often placed where it would be in speech; and in edited and more formal prose only tends to be placed immediately before the word or words it modifies.
Examples of ONLY
She had been there only twice in her life.
There are only two more weeks until summer vacation.
It's only a matter of time before someone gets hurt.
Do you really have to leave? It's only eight o'clock.
He was only a baby when his father died.
Leave her alone. She's only a kid.
The building is only about 10 years old.
It was quiet in the room, but only for a moment.
She is only partly to blame.
The club is for women only.

Good lord, dude. Let me rephrase for your sensitive heart...

“Prince. Purple Rain Tour. That would be a great idea. I would really enjoy that show.”

Didn't realize this was the type of forum that makes a girl go from excited to :emo in a span of 2 minutes.

Prince unfortunately wouldn't sell tickets for the modern Coachella crowd.

would be awesome, saw him in la last year. but considering he won't play several of those songs anymore...

An appearance by Prince won't impact the number of ticket sales in any way, shape or form. Coachella sells itself out whether Prince is there or not.

You have a point, but GV has to appeal to their mean audience member with headliners, which IMO, Prince no longer does.
