poster outside City Winery all week (via @mrtillman17)
NPG

He did it again. Much like Thursday night, Prince showed up last night (8/25) at City Winery for the last of New Power Generation's residency at City Winery. Technically it was this morning as the show -- billed as a VMAs afterparty -- didn't start till midnight. And it didn't finish till almost 6 AM. Sets from Shelby J. and Liv Warfield started off the night, followed by "special guest sets" starting at 1 AM from Cee Lo Green (who played Brooklyn Bowl earlier that night), Family Stone/Grand Central Station's Larry Graham (who plays BB King's Wednesday, tickets are on sale), and Alice Smith (who played other nights of the residency too). Prince took the stage around 3 AM and played almost literally till the break of dawn. Doug E. Fresh, who was there on Thursday, guested again too.

Did you go? What did you think? And how are you awake?

The approximate setlist is below...

Fuck. Something I could have gone to but didn't. Bitten by regret again.

How much were the tickets?

Posted by Anonymous | August 26, 2013 1:05 PM

I could have gone and perhaps should have - but the $200 tickets kept me away. I did see the Wed. night show which was worth $75.
Oh well.....

If my job didn't actually require work, I soooo would have been there.

Would've went, but my freakin' back problems kept me from going.

didn't play 'when doves cry' so really didn't miss anything.

suppose technically he didn't really play other instruments, kept strapping a guitar on but would just strum it a few times, no solos, seemed to be having much more fun coordinating the whole party. I had Ain't Gonna Miss You When You're Gone as the ????? in the set list above. Came on about 3:15am. Great set.

I like prince but it is Obnoxious to get on so late. Start at 10pm like a normal person amirite!

Prince hasn't written a relevant song in 25+ years so please stop sucking his micro dick like it's a revelatory experience.

Posted by len jay | August 26, 2013 1:59 PM

If you're gonna bring back NPG you gotta do Cream and Get Off. I know Prince is born again but his raunchy early 90's NPG shit was the best.

Micro dick? Clearly you've been out of the loop on Prince.

'kept strapping a guitar on but would just strum it a few times,'..

Actually he took some blistering solos in the last encore...don't you remember Plectrum Electric?

Posted by anonymous | August 26, 2013 2:20 PM

People paid $200 per person and Prince went on a little after 3am? That's excellent.

Posted by Anonymous | August 26, 2013 2:34 PM

Total self indulgent prick who's been over charging his fans for decades but releasing nothing of worth during that time.

Posted by len jay | August 26, 2013 2:40 PM

Yeah, and I am all for GA standing room, but standing for 6 hours to see Prince, I'd think it would be hard to get funky around 4:30

I heard Prince fucks guys in the ass for a living. FUCK YOU.

Posted by Anonymous | August 26, 2013 2:57 PM

I went to this and it was amazing. Yes people payed $200 and he went on just after 3, but he played until around 5:45 am...and it was at a venue that holds 400 people. This whole thing was incredible. Say what you want about him as a person, but he ferocious musician and band leader. BTW, there are some nasty retards on this thread.Do the world a favor and walk in front of a bus.

White people who pay $300 to see a concert make me sad.

"Actually he took some blistering solos in the last encore...don't you remember Plectrum Electric?"

Yeah, sorry about that - was responding to the set list saying the piano encore was the first time he'd played an instrument - not much guitar work before then. You're absolutely correct though, I should have been clearer. Bit tired today

Wow, from the evidence of this thread, Brooklyn, which is supposed to be cool, is full of angry retards who don't know shit about good music. Who knew?

Dear Prince Haters,what musical instrument do you play?NONE.Are the artists you grew up with still on radio or touring?NO.Did you know Prince to date has about 33 albums,some 2,3 and 4 CD sets?NO.Did you know that after his 4 hr concerts,he finds A club in that city to perform FREE?What do you give freely,WORDS FILLED WITH HATE FOR SOMEONE YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW.Did you know that when Ushers big hit Confession 2 was at the top of charts,Prince was #1 touring artist beating Ushers tours also.HEY HATERS,did you know when he wrote SLAVE on his face,it was the FIRST step in educating poor people on owning ones MASTER recordings.Did you know when he backed out of 100 million dollar deal with Warner Bros,he kept the money.So they blackballed him from radio.Would any of you haters have been smart enough to change your name,tone down on luxuries,settle for 200,000 records sold verses 3 million.And the greats thing of all,21 nights in Paris.No ones ever done that,played every night in same spot,so if I didn't get to see him on Saturday,he's still there next week $$$$$$$$$$ HATERS GO TA HEAVEN!!!
