Prince played ‘Fallon’ (video); NYC tribute shows this week
Prince on ‘Jimmy Fallon’
The Purple One (aka Prince) blessed NYC and the world at large with a performance on Friday (3/1) on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, performing the previously discussed new track “Screwdriver” as well as his 1979 track “Bambi”. Check out video of both below. Both songs are available for purchase via Prince directly.
As mentioned, Prince will be paid tribute by names like The Roots, Elvis Costello and more over two sold-out nights in NYC, one officially at Carnegie Hall on March 7 and one “rehearsal” at City Winery on March 6th.
D’Angelo, who will perform the Carnegie Hall tribute, also plays Brooklyn Bowl tonight with Questlove (3/4, sold out).
Will Prince make an appearance at any of these shows? Prince.org at least confirms Prince will be in attendance at Carnegie.
