So... A little birdie told me... This SNL show is to promote the Purple Rain reissue to be released in December.

Umm no & hell no. At best there will be a commercial promoting the albums release

Only if he actually plays THAT version with 3EG followed by an unheard epic rendition of a Hendrix classic.

Only then he can do some AOA songs.

Pills and thrills and daffodils will kill... If you don't believe me or don't get it, I don't have time to try to convince you, sorry.

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.

cool

Well it better be that he's playing a gig in Louisiana

Well...30 Rock works....I suppose. :eyeroll: ...

Just kidding!!

:Excited: excited drool thumbs up!

This is friggin C.....O-O-L.

If it's anything like his last stop at 30 rock when he broke the Cap'n's guitar...imma b stoked!

I kinda HOPED he'd do a SNL performance...but I didn't think it'd b a reality. The SNL Demo is right up his alley...the TV viewers at least...plus, he'll get exposure to Online and DVR viewers.

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.


That funny...he just released 2 wreckids, but that's not the reason he's there; to promote them. He's there, of course, to draw a crowd for someone who doesn't need a crowd drawn for them. Ure so funny. lol

By the time of the broadcast I don't think there's anything left to promote. Plectrum Electrum is out of the Top 60 selling less than 5,000 copies on it's second week.

Rolling Stone said the SNL show was to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Purple Rain but we shall see...

Shit, the entire internet would explode because THAT shit right there, would be freaking EPICNESS beyond all measure and everyone would be talking about it everywhere!!!!!

So of course, Prince can't have THAT happen. rolleyes
He will likely have 3rdEyeGirl perform that whack ass rendition of LGC and throughly leave the viewers who haven't been following his melodrama over the last several years looking like whofarted

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.

1ST REHEARSAL 4 SNL



Looks like it's going to be something new they haven't played live before. Grabbing a few acoustics is what you do when you're coming up with parts and arrangements.

I got two sides... and they're both friends.

I would be VERY surprised. There's no chance he's going to do an acoustic performance

They are almost definitely working out parts for an arrangment of an AOA track. This Could Be Us specifically. Don't ask how I know this

It just sounds silly...he just released a record less than a month ago and u ask "what's he promoting?". How's it go?....McFlyyyyy!

Or ...is your point that it's not being promoted in the manner u wish it to be?


Last time he did SNL he was several weeks away from a release date...time before that he was several weeks away from a tour date.

When is an artist supposed to make a SNL appearance in relation to their latest project? Cc: your reply to the record company presidents, marketing teams, agents, managers, and booking agents. I'm sure they can learn from u.

Surely the way this has been billed - they're going to get more than a couple of songs in the hour? Sounds like it's going to be similer to the AH Show, but with Prince at some point wearing a funny hat.

Could well be a couple of songs from each album.
