After teasing a major
announcement, the Twitter account for the Fox Theater in Oakland, CA has confirmed
that Prince & & 3RDEYEGIRL
will be playing a last-minute show this
Saturday, March 15. Tonight's revelation continues a trend of last-minute show
announcements from The Purple One.
UPDATE - 11:24 p.m. PT: While the Saturday show sold out in minutes, it
shows are about to
be added. Keep an eye on the Ticketmaster pages for Prince and Fox
Theater for any additional show(s).
In case you missed it, The Purple One made quite a splash last week playing surprise shows
at the Hollywood Palladium
on both Friday and Saturday nights, with the Saturday gig running over three hours and
featuring over 50 songs.
As noted by Vintage Vinyl News, Prince hit the stage just after 10 p.m.
and "55 songs (some in shortened versions & not including snippets placed in the
songs), five encores and 3 hours and 40 minutes later, the show was finally over." Over
the course of the evening Prince performed six of Purple Rain's nine tracks, six
tunes from Sign O' The Times and a slew of other tunes. We've seen some epic
setlists in our day but this one just might take the cake:
