Prince & ?uestlove @ MSG
Prince and Questlove

Back when we last posted those Evan Dando & Juliana Hatfield dates that Lady Lamb the Beekeeper is opening, there wasn't a Brooklyn date but at some point a Friday, January 21st show at the Bell House popped up and tickets are still available.

Tickets are also still available for the the Bell House show happening tonight, 1/18, with Mavis Staples, Jolie Holland and Kyp Malone.

I bet Prince would go to Mavis Staples if his own show with Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings wasn't happening at MSG at the same time. BTW, tickets are still on sale for Prince's February 7th show at MSG if you can't make it tonight.

Maybe Prince will stop by the show at Brooklyn Bowl tonight though, at least that's what the rumor is though nobody I've asked that might know seems to know one way or the other. Lettuce, Prince collaborator Maceo Parker, Dr. John, Prince collaborator Questlove, The London Souls and "Very Special Guests" are on the bill. If Prince is your only reason for braving the weather though, go at your own "very special guest" risk.

UPDATE: Prince did in fact NOT play Brooklyn Bowl.

Dr John is on Gregg Allman's new CD so maybe he will make an appearance at that show?

Has Jeff Tweedy been playing the last few Mavis shows?

$30 tickets to Brooklyn Bowl sold out this morning. Now $50/$75/$100 tickets are also sold out.

so... he's definitely showing up after MSG?

Brooklyn Bowl HAS NOT been confirmed at all you fool 4:04. Everyone is guessing he will play there after MSG and that is why the tickets sold out today.

If you know Prince though then you know he will probably do the least likely thing and not play here after.

"Brooklyn Bowl confirmed... and like that, $30 tickets sold out."

Not only has he not been confirmed, but $30 tickets have been sold out for a while now. It didn't just happen.

Prince will actually be showing up at the Mavis / Kyp show.
You heard it here first.

yeah, he's bailing out on MSG to play at the Bell House. makes total sense.

How much did Brooklyn Bowl pay you to hype up a nonexistent Prince show at their venue tonight?

it's confirmed.

Aftershow was at Darby. VIP only.

MSG was a party. Four encores, played Peach.

Correction, Pete. In prince circles it is only an aftershow if he performs. He did not perform tonight at Darby. Only Sharon jones and the dap kings played. Just simply an afterparty.

My bad on the Prince semantics.

That picture above of Prince - thats what is known as a fuck up, also known as a shitty picture, also known as crap. But for some reason, because its digital, we're forced to look at blurry, faded, multiple exposure crap. THE WORLD NEEDS AN EDITOR.

So are Julianna and Evan back together again "in that sense"?
