Prince Opens Home to Fans - Paisley Park Studio Concert
Prince opened his home to his fans last night with a concert to once again feature the New Power Generation, Prince's back up band.
It is an amazing change for the very private artist and the concert was held at his Paisley Park Studio.
The charge for this amazing show - only $50!
Here's how the announcement read:
'Prince, the New Power Generation, & 3rdEyeGirl. $50 donation at the door, and limited entry.
NO ADVANCE TICKETS. Doors at 9 p.m., Saturday, October 5. Paisley Park Studios, 7801 Audubon Rd., Chanhassen.
No alcoholic drinks allowed, no cell phones, no audio recorders, no cameras, no reentry.
Rolling Stone notes in a review that the show was a winner.
Thomas Kinter writes:
"The song selection was all over the place, in a good way: the quirky 1990s sway of "Dark," the swelled drama of onetime bootleg favorite "Old Friends 4 Sale," and a dip into Prince’s 1989 Batman work for the buoyant "Partyman." The vault-track-turned-recent-release "Extraloveable" was an irresistible reimagining of old work, while his take on "Purple Rain" offered his powerful shriek that times they are a-changin’, followed by a saxophone solo in place of the tune’s classic guitar crescendo as a reminder that they don’t always change for the better."

Hannah Ford, the drummer for 3rdEyeGirl has said, "We really just wanted to open up Paisley to the public and invite Minnesota and everybody else who can make it out."
She added, "This one is more-so like a spur of the moment event to spend tme with our community and throw and big concert for everybody and show off some of the stuff we're working on."
