Prince dizzies fans with 3-show night
Prince launched his latest 3-disc album on Sunday night with a series of three concerts out in L.A. media reports from out west give somewhat mixed reports on the shows, but they do confirm that the Purple One's genius remains firmly intact.
"Although he didn't perform each of the new albums in their entirety at each venue, Prince stuck to the numeral three theme, performing three different sets, each with distinct musical flavors and backing musicians, at the complex's trio of venues: the Nokia Theater, the Conga Room and Club Nokia," the Hollywood Reporter said in its review. "The result was a long night of wildly diverse music that nearly was derailed by sound problems. But in the end, the Royal One prevailed, reminding fans he's an uncompromising but ultimately rewarding singular talent."
Prince's new album (or albums) -- LotusFlow3r, MPLSound and Elixer (by Bria Valente) -- was released Sunday exclusively at Target and online at http://www.lotusflow3r.com/.
