woohoo!!
I am about 20 some rows back, row EE. I was thrilled. The time before that I had two seats upstairs and the system kicked me out before it was final!

did the last show sell out too? I never saw them on sale, and it looks as though they haven't gone on sale yet by the site. I guess it has though if you got tickets to it. I had a friend still trying.

Hopefully he won't play the same show back to back!!

Prince danced, joked, flirted and absolutely destroyed the ego of every guitarist in attendance, firmly living up to preshow promises of guitar hero rock 'n' roll built on a foundation of funk.

With the ticketless system requiring a credit card scan and ID check for each buyer, it's a slow process so get there early or risk arriving at the last second to shorter lines but also the chance of missing a couple of songs.

i'm so pumped for this that i'm ready to go stand in line for the next 7 hours! got a feeling i'll be missing the start of the second show, though. once they clear the venue after show#1 i guess i'll be stuck at the back of the line for show#2.

I was about 8-9 rows from the back and was still thrilled just to have gotten in.
but some silly silly people left after Purple Rain, like 20 people.
So we snuck down to some empty seats in the 5th row for the 2nd encore which was about a half hour!!
And fans were brought up on stage for the 2nd encore to dance. it was pretty wild.

i pulled a ticket for row H in detroit tonight.

i'm wondering if we're just going to get an absolute marathon set because it appears he's only going to play one show here.
some get stoned, some get strange, sooner or later it all gets real.

When was that show announced?  I know he's doing the whole thing where he announces shows only a few days in advance, but I didnt hear anything about this one.  I'm patiently waiting for a NY show

If I'm remembering right it was either late on Friday night or really early on Saturday morning.

I'd suggest following @drfunkenberry or @PURPLESSENCE on twitter.

I'll definitely report back.

Good lord, what a set last night in Detroit -- wish I went! Can't believe he busted out "She's Always In My Hair"! Can't wait to hear a full report, robb!

Dr. Funkenberry sent an ominous "T . " tweet last night, so I'm hoping Toronto is next on the list!

Just snagged some pit tickets to the Prince+3EG show in Toronto tomorrow night!! Prince's guitarist Donna Grantis is from Toronto (actually first saw her play at a Woman's Blues Revue in town a few years ago!) so this should be a sweet homecoming!

I am attempting to do something crazy and see Tame Impala and Prince in the same night. Tame Impala is scheduled to go on at 9, and Prince starts at 11 a few blocks away. Definitely the most aggressive and ambitious concert-going plans I've ever made. This'll be interesting!

i never wrote a review on this, mostly because i couldn't put it into words how awesome it was.


that double dip is going to be crazy, i'm stoked you were able to snag some tickets.

Well, that was one of the craziest nights ever, alright. Flying high on the Purple stuff right now.

FYI -- in my Prince withdrawal, I found an UNREAL soundboard recording from the Detroit show!! The way Prince gets with tapings, I'm sure this'll be gone in a day or two, so I'm thrilled I got it before he snatched it back. Let me know if you want me to send it over. It's curing my post-Prince blues big time.
