Did the band have the most players ever assembled, or just a bunch of really big people, or were they just big in comparison to Prince? The article failed miserably in answering the questions I had...

Great entertainer. Have only seen him once! But his Super Bowl show has never been topped.

I think Jon has finally tagged Prince's style - he's the Symbolist of Rock.

Sounds like some refunds are in order. Ridiculous Diva attitude. Also, hey Prince why do you snub us so much? I would say come play a show at home but not sure if I would want to pay for what Im reading

Jon, your commentary... well that's all it is, a commentary. Hard to believe you and I were at the same show. The performance was awesome. 20-member band, what were you expecting Jon? Afro, is always in. Oops, just maybe not for some of my European friends. Hey, if you can't do it, don't hate on people who can. And you think that "tanning" is in? Please. Check your mirror again. You look like fools.

With all his talents, Prince is a total punk. He has always treated his fans with disrespect. Is it that hard to be somewhat on time to your own shows? 45 minute wait for final encore? The guy is no longer worth the money or time to see. LA didnt want him anymore, Chicago, you can keep that lil punk!

When he did that series of shows in Xcel a few years ago, I had a blast at the show I attended. I don't recall anything like this -- no lengthy wait for an encore. He was engaging then. But he is unique... I guess you never know what you'll get from him.

Not many artists get away with treating their fans as does Prince.
