Prince Let Down

JuniorT 27 Oct 2003 18:27

After reading reviews of Prince's second show @ Rod Laver, I feel ripped-off! I went to the first show and thought it was great, but it certainly didn't reach any amazingly dizzy heights, which was pretty dissappointing. What did you think? I particularly feel the one song encore was a huge let down for a lot of people who had waited along to see Prince live again, and who spent a lot of money on tickets. I'd like to hear what Anthony Zaccaria and others think/s about an artist like Prince who decides to serve up what may be considered "second best" for one audience and then apparently go all out the next night. Sure, artists can have "off" nights but with a guy like Prince, you always expect equal excellence at all performances. Man,audiences as loyal as Prince's deserve the very "best" every time.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

I went to both Melbourne shows. Both were totally awesome! I'm suprised that you thought Prince had an off night on Tuesday. It was because he was so fantastic that I decided to go again on the Wednesday night.
I was right at the front for the first shown and from where I was it was like mass hysteria from the whole of Rod Laver.
I'm sorry you didn't get into it.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

hey, anthony here.
The first show was still awesome. I was in the front row for that basically.. and it did go off. The second show for some reason, was just better. I thought that the second show would just be the same as the first, which was all good.. but after about 5 songs in you could feel something different. I dont know whether it had anything to do with the crowd or not.... the crowd did seem a little more hyped on the wednesday and i was out in the audience then, not on the floor like the first night. Prince did say that he and the band feed off the crowd a lot. Maybe it was just because it was the first show of the world tour etc, and maybe had some pre-show nerves etc. I know thats hard to believe for someone of Prince's caliber...
They didnt seem to have any nerves...
I went to the sydney show also and he played 2 extra songs in the first encore.. so sydney got 2 more than the 2nd melbourne show! I think its just the way Prince is. If he feels like playing more and more he will... but if he isnt getting a crowd response then he wont.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

and i hear what you say about loyal prince fans getting the best.... dont worry you still did... It wasnt an off night at all on the first night. Its just how some nights go better than others thats all. All bands do it... some nights click better than others for whatever reason.
Dont feel ripped off! You still saw an unbelieveable show.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

Yeah. Cool. I still had a great time and thought it was one of the best shows I've seen. But, maybe my expectations were just too high. Maybe I was positioned too far away from the vibe (yep, crap seats I guess). And maybe I just didn't hear all my favourite songs. Hey, I'm not trying to knock Prince at all. I think he is an absolute genius. Did you see the Rage special on Saturday night? Awesome! Some of the live clips were sublime! I'd definitely go to see him live again, but I don't think us Aussies will get that chance. Peace.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

Do you know Anthony, JuniorT? Who are you? I know that both Anthony and Michael had an absolutely fabulous time at all the shows they attended. They were the last few people who were lucky enough to be allowed into the Bennetts La gig. Apparently Prince came and sat next to them at the bar. That would've been pretty damn crazy.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>
