Does Prince sign autographs for his fans, meet n' greet, etc?

I've been to see some major musicial acts in stadiums and they are known to give autographs for their fans. Some lesser known acts (mostly celebrity impersonators) would do meet 'n' greets after their shows and talk with the fans and autographs.

Has Prince ever done anything like this in his career?

He did signings for either For You or Prince (picture in Prince: A Documentary book) and then in '88 in London during Lovesexy at a record shop and backstage at Wembley Arena (for the fan club) then in '93 during Act I and Act II then finally at Virgin Megastore in London, 1995 with The NPG.

There the only ones I know about.

Prince does not give autographs for fans nowadays, and hasn't done for many years.

As for 'meet 'n greets', in recent times these have been rare.


The Celebrations at Paisley Park, and other events at the studios, have involved Prince meeting others in different ways.

During the NPG Music Club days, fans were admitted to the 'soundcheck' during One Nite Alone tour shows in 2002, and these were relatively intimate, with Prince, chatting with the attendees and, on occasions, inviting people to perform on stage whilst he and the band supported.

Similarly - and perhaps more exclusively, during the 2003 tour in Australia, some members met and chatted to Prince prior to shows.

And, in the early run of London shows in 2014, a few fans who had queued for a very long time and endured some unpleasant weather were admitted to the venue for the soundcheck, meeting and chatting with Prince briefly.

ALT+PLS+RTN: Pure as a pane of ice. It's a gift.

Dreams are made for that, the only place I've had meet and greet with Prince, like last night.

Was going to a gig, missed it (3 hour drive to Montreal) arrived when the show was over, saw him in the hall, told him I was sorry I missed the show, then with my friends and his band we went in the hall stairs and he asked me what I wanted to hear... I said Elephants and Flowers cause he never sings it and I love the song.. so he sang it for me and was suddenly dressed in black and white and dancing. At the end he sat in the stairs and made a huge sigh, I sat next to him and said "That sigh sounded like a "I'm too old for that". He laughed. I said "You were ok.. I mean you were great!" He replied "You said "you were ok" first!" and then we laughed a lot and I gave him a long hug, both still sitting in the stairs.

Woke up with a huge smile on my face, didn't want to get out of bed... Finally did, and I'm playing Elephants and Flowers on repeat since smile

Dreams encounter are the best smile

Yeah, I love Graffiti Bridge movie, so what? ''Oooooooooooh Montreal, say it!''
If you can't be nice to someone on the net, you probably ain't worth much talking to in real life either.
