I'm thrilled to know he's serving as the musical guest on SNL, but this was hugely overhyped. lol

Excuse me if this was already talked about in all the pages.. but isnt' this the FOURTH Time Prince has been on SNL? I recall him as a young "pup" doing something raw and gritty.. then he did "Electric Chair" then "Fury" now this time .. Everyone keeps saying 3rd time??


I'd love to see him do a skit or 2.. but I highly doubt it...





1981 Party Up





Right.. Party up.. So Party up.. Electric Chair... Fury. ... and this time?
Every report I read tho says this is the 3rd time he will be on???? Confussed.. LOL



As has been mentioned twice in the last 2 pages: Electric Chair was on the 15th Anniversary special, not an actual episode.

World tour announcement with initial dates in the UK and Europe?

The UK is a big disappointment. The new Prince records didn't even reach top 5 in sales in the UK. Barely made the top 10. This will be a north american tour. Count on it!

It's interesting how often in Prince's history records that have been successful in the UK have not in the US and vice-versa.

Happy he's gonna be on SNL. However, I can't believe most here (including myself) was expecting something along the lines of P.R. remaster announcement, tour info etc. Its Princey were talking about..
But an appearance on SNL is a good prequel to the above mentioned....
lol
Prince did an interview with a woman at Record World. They talked about whatever, then he asked her: "Does your pubic hair go up to your navel?" At that moment, we thought maybe we shouldn't encourage him to do interviews.

There was an article written by Rolling Stones on Yahoo tv about Prince appearing on SNL, and zero comments from people.....I guess that shows how excited folks are by the news.

This MEGA SnL per4mance will b the HIGHEST rated of the season! Both r MEGA fans of eachother.

It'll b a MASTERPIECE event!!! Both have signed MEGA DEALS! Paramount just picked up barely a few weeks ago Chris's new project. He wrote, produced & is starring in "Top Five" which is rare a movie is sold that quickly. Plus of course prince's MEGA resigning with wb,reclaiming his Masters & his critical acclaimed double release, that both debuted @ number #1.

What do you think of the MEGA drop in the charts this week??? lol

1989 doesn't count as it was not a regular show but a Prime time special on Sunday night...

That is dumb tho.. cause its STILL a performance.. I'm saying his 4th time.. LOL

I'm not near as disappointed as most of you. It's great news that he's finally getting out there promoting the album. Plus it's gonna be awesome to see him on SNL with Chris rock.

The tour is coming...

Bold part - let's hope so...

Love God. Love Music. Love Life.

If there's anyone that can convincePrince to be in a skit it's Chris rock. This should be good...





^ This.

Not only a music legend but a comedic one. If I didn't already watch SNL I definitely would be that night.

You people are impossible.

Why would an SNL performance be a disappointment?

Hell he'll probably show up in a few skits too. That might be fun.

And millions of people still watch it and he gets to show off his live skills to them.

I thought I was the one with the jaded name.

Well, being honest - SNL isn't all that funny anymore and with the exception of Tina Fey's Sarah Palin...hasn't been in years. So with Prince being Prince and considering he did SNL in 2006 in his usual Neno Brown...umm...Prince --"The world is mine!" -- way. I really wouldn't hold my breath on his showing up in a few skits.

Hell, his actually showing up and appearing at all is about the best to even try to hope for. IJS! shrug

[Edited 10/14/14 19:55pm]

Here's what bothers ME:

Prince died of an overdose of the drug Fentanyl. Of which, it is very highly fucking likely that he never even knew he'd taken.

lol. Sorry Kcool. I Love everything that Prince has done over the past few years and the doc's involvement with all things purple, to steal a quote from you, has been a masterpiece. When Prince had nothing going on the past few years, funkenberry was given gems from the camp and news tidbits that kept us informed. That's all. Not trying to slam anyone but just calling em like gramma told me, calling a spade a spade. smile

Doc is a grown ass man....A closed mouth don't get fed...

eye will ALWAYS think of prince like a "ACT OF GOD"! N another realm. eye mean of all people who might of been aliens or angels.if found out that prince wasn't of this earth, eye would not have been that surprised. R.I.P. prince

So believe it or not this has been trending on Twitter, although nothing confirmed... Various media sites are saying this SNL performance will be performance for the 30th Anniversary of Purple Rain...

Maybe Warners master plan is working. SNL performance in November, to promote the re release for December... Let the speculations begin.

Rolling Stone:

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Purple Rain, Saturday Night Live announced Tuesday that Prince will fill the role of musical guest on the show's Nov. 1 episode, according to RollingStone Magazine.

The Minnesota-born performer will be joined by his backing band 3rdEyeGirl, with whom Prince recorded his two new albums Art Official Age and PlectrumElectrum. Chris Rock will host the episode, which marks the comedian's first SNL visit in 18 years.

The SNL gig is Prince's third time performing on the live sketch comedy and variety show.

Amen. @Purplessence was making it sound like a tour only because Funkenberry posted the press release from WB last week saying a tour was forthcoming so they thought that was the news. Funny. She was begging DrFunk for followers and he would retweet em, most likely because the camp had a gun to his head. He got them a LOT of his followers. Each person that follows essence follows doc. Now they are posting articles about the SNL appearance, not the doc's of course, that are not even getting as many hits as the doc's. 3rdeyegirl has been doing the same to him over the past year. Not sure why they are distancing themselves from him when he posts about them and does a show about them EVERY week. The Time article @purplessence retweeted had 300 facebook likes. The link 3rdeyegirl tweeted to EW has 500. Funkenberry without the support of 3rdeye or @purplessence has 1.4K likes. Unlike EW and Time, Funkenberry is independant so that is more impressive. Note to @purplessence, @3rdeyegirl, and the Prince camp, stop dogging Funkenberry who has been mr. reliable to the Prince community. It is pathetic that boy is so broke and has crazy health issues. Also, stop having accounts hyping up a tour announcement that was not a tour announcement!

[Edited 10/14/14 18:56pm]

The only reason why I followed @purplessence in the first place was because Dr. FB said or implied that it is an official account. I assumed that Prince wanted to have a twitter account that is separate from @3rdEyeGirl to send out tweets regarding his own separate personal projects. Now I don't know what the hell @purplessence is.

The SNL appearance is interesting news. It is not what we expected, that's for sure. I was expecting to have tour dates and hoping that they would include a stop in Dallas, in which case I would have been emailing babysitters just as @purplessence suggested. I'm sure everyone who lives in a city that Prince has not visited for a long time was thinking the same thing. All of us can watch his SNL appearance, but we don't need babysitters for that!

The Census Bureau estimates that there are 2,518 American Indians and Alaska Natives currently living in the city of Long Beach.

It doesn't matter anymore. They both already made HISTORY & debuted @ number #1! While simultaneously entering the billboard 100 top 10. Mission accomplished!

Prince could give free concerts everyday the rest of his life and people on the Org would still find something to complain about. The negativity on here is unbearable sometimes.

Trolls be gone!

Why are people still listening to a twitter account that after months still hasn't produced one iota of actually having access to Prince?

Note to @purplessence, @3rdeyegirl, and the Prince camp, stop dogging Funkenberry who has been mr. reliable to the Prince community.

Except for all the duds he's posted in the past.

Is this real promotion for anything? Prince does things on a whim these days so I reckon he's just supporting his chum Chris Rock like he did Arsenio.
