Last night, Prince alongside his new mastermind project of 3RDEYEGIRL launched a west coast residency taking course over the next month. I had the pleasure of being in attendance for both shows and wanted to give you the inside scoop. Check out my full review:
On a chilly Canadian night, Prince kicked off the first of a 9 city, 34 show west coast residency with back to back shows at the Vogue Theatre, an intimate 1000 capacity venue. Seeing one of the most iconic entertainment figures in music history at this stage in his career play anything less than a stadium is few and far between, so I was surprised to see backlash from some against $250 ticket prices (most venues sold out instantly). It isn’t cheap, but compared to other entertainment, how outrageous is it versus sitting courtside at any NBA game (or up close in general at any sporting event), let alone spending hundreds or thousands of dollars at a night club on bottle service? I mean, we are talking about witnessing a legend to legends from a spitting distance, a once in a life time opportunity for most. Luckily, the show and introduction of 3RDEYEGIRL lived up to the price of admission in every way.
