It says on the posters that he'll be playing the hits (for the last time ever). Can we take this as a promise? Prince performing Purple Rain is something no one should miss, Prince messing about with obscurities from the 90s would be less essential.

I'm pretty sure he'll be playing plenty of hits amogst other stuff, but he refused to confirm that it was the last time ever at the press conference: that came from the PR company.

He's certainly not averse to wheeling out the classics nowadays: the Super Bowl performance had some good 'uns.

Trying to convince my friends, none of which are Prince fans, to make the effort.

So biglime (and other Princexperts):

I know most of the Prince back catalog like the back of my hand. But I started to stop enjoying it somewhere around Diamonds and Pearls, and gave up altogether after the awful Come. Since then I've bought almost nothing. I had a go with Musicology but it didn't do much for me. What do I need to listen to to catch up?

The Rainbow Children. Get it. It's in my top 5.

It continues to reward you, it's musically unmatched, and it's completely off its nut.

For reference, my favourite Prince album is Lovesexy.

I really liked The Rainbow Children and I heard it during a time when I couldn't have cared less for new Prince material.

It seems unlikely that any of my friends are gonna go to this. The one person I know has a Prince cd seemed distinctly uninterested. It's a gig I'd quite like to see though, especially at the price. I spoke to Mr Do, who said he was up for going. I wondered if anybody else was interested in having a little meet for one of the gigs?

So I'm refreshing the site at 8.59, with it saying tickets aren't available yet.

At 9.00, I'm told they're all sold out. WTF?

Fucking cunts.

My boss got tickets for that show at Koko last night. We'll never hear the fucking end of it.
To be honest, the O2 thing as well as pre-sale fan club type thing I'd be surprised if there were any tickets left for general sale.

It is disgraceful. On the other hand, if I lived in London I'd be going down to the gig every night, because it's odds on you'll be able to pick up good seats for less than the face value considering that so many of them are currently on ebay, and probably won't sell.

I haven't seen the full setlist from last night's secret show, but here's a comment from the man himself during the performance: "So many hits, so little time. You want to hear 'Diamonds And Pearls'? 'Pop Life'? 'Raspberry Beret'? Nahhh!"

Ooh, he's evil!! He did play Let's Go Crazy, Kiss and U Got The Look amongst various instrumentals and covers of Amy Winehouse and Gnarls Barkley tracks, though, so I suppose we should be grateful...

I helped our sixth form helper lady get some tickets today, she got them around 12 from the 02 site apparently or somthing. Thats my good deed for the day, I like Prince myself but not enough to go see him live I dont think, moneys nonexistant anyway.

I'm not going to be able to use my ticket for the 14th August. It's a fairly decent seat. Anyone want it? Face value plus postage?

Damnit, I want to go to this so badly. I would take the one ticket off your hands, but its seated and so there would be no chance of getting another one.

Rubbish.

Guess I'm gonna be on ebay nearer the time :D

My mate has been given 2 tickets by his parents for doing well in his uni exams and he's taking me!

20th of september here we come.

What's the word on the dome as a concert venue? Prince is one of the few artists who could fill somewhere that big but I would be nice to know that i'm going to be able to see and hear him.
