Prince Does a Surprise Appearance in Austin, TX

A friend just called me and told me that our man and Grupo Fantasma did a surprise, private performance at a restaurant in Austin, Texas, Saturday night June 2nd. It was featured on the local news station KXAN.

According to this site: http://thatotherpaper.com...he_belmont


Inside sources tell That Other Paper that a very, very wealthy individual has commissioned Prince to fly to Austin and regale his wife with Princey hits and over-sexified renditions of “Happy Birthday.” (Sounds like someone needs some P Control.) To ensure secrecy, he’s rented out the Belmont.

The Events & Music section of the Belmont’s website reads:

The Belmont closed for Private Event 06-02-2007
The Belmont will be closed on Saturday, June 2, 2007 for a private event. We apologize for any inconvenience.

I have discovered that Prince was paid $1 million to come to the Belmont and play 6 songs. Better be 6 really good songs.

3121 Spy Report: Prince Rocks Austin

As if the Roosevelt jam wasn't hot enough, a private gig at the swanky Belmont in Austin Saturday nearly caused a block-wide meltdown! Grupo Fantasma took 2 the outdoor stage at 10pm 2 set things off. Was that Renato sitting in on keys? O yes! The groove was so funky that Prince had 2 jump in 4 a piece of it on guitar. Grupo rolled through a bunch of their own material and some covers. Every time it got funky, Prince joined them back onstage, branding the jam with some keys or guitar. By the time he had the crowd chanting "Eye like funky music", it felt just like a smokin' hot NPG aftershow.

Later in the night Grupo left the stage and Prince and The NPG ran through some of his classics, starting with Little Red Corvette and sliding into everyone singing along 2 "Nothing Compares 2 U." When he left the stage, the crowd chanted, "Prince...Prince" until one by one, the musicians came back onstage 2 funk it up some mo'. The closer: a slammin' version of "Get on the Boat." U never know where this crew is going to pop up next!

a little of it is fine, but i hope he doesn't go TOO david byrne-styley with the latin influenced stuff, to where it overlaps his style more than vice versa. unless it means more sheila. in which case, strike what i just said. nod

Those million dollar doritos are for the ex-wife. The Earth Tour will be renamed "Mani Stole My Wallet" tour.

MJ didn't PLAY at a birthday party, but he did play the fool who payed him. The reports I read said he walked in, hung out for a few minutes and left because he 'wasn't feeling well'. Why do people think he can still do anything? He hasn't performed anywhere in the last few years that I can recall. Hell, even Quincy Jones won't give him the time of day now.
