Yes I'm back, after far too long away. First thing I must tell you about, of course, is THE CONCERT.
And I don't want to hear any "which concert?"s. You should know the one I'm talking about.
It was...just the most perfect thing ever. I actually managed to find a picture from the show (cameras were strictly forbidden) on the excellent fan site http://www.prince.org/ Doesn't he look sexy? This was after he changed, he started out the show in a white shirt. During the encore he wore a fedora. Siiigh. Our seats were...pretty bad I must say, quite far from the stage, though because it was so steep, we didn't have to stand to see over the people in front of us. The set list was:
Take Me With U
Play That Funky Music
U Got The Look
Piano medley: Little Red Corvette/Diamonds and Pearls/The Beautiful Ones/Raspberry Beret
Synth medley: Soft And Wet/Sign O The Times/Pop Life/She's Always in My Hair/Alphabet Street/When Doves Cry/Erotic City
I Wanna Be Your Lover
If I Was Your Girlfriend
Let’s go Crazy
I Feel 4 U
So clearly very hits heavy. (And for the record, he didn't actually do full versions of any of the songs in the medleys...for many he didn't do more than a couple bars) He only played a couple songs that I really love, but I wasn't disappointed at all. It was my first (hopefully of many!) Prince concert, so it's fairly appropriate that it was more of a greatest hits set. The opening act was Mya, who was actually quite good. She did a version of "Lady Marmalade" with her backup singers that blew me away.
If you have any questions about the show, definitely ask. I'm not really sure how much information to put here! Also, the concert gods are REALLY blessing me this year...I scored tickets to see the Arctic Monkeys on September 30th! I'll definitely tell you all about that.
Anyways, I'm back! I've got tons of post ideas, so look forward to that...
