Prince and his backing band, 3rd Eye Girl performed a once-in-a-lifetime show at Marquee Theatre last night. Er, twice--I guess they'll be coming back tonight.
It was pretty fantastic, but don't take my word for it. Here's the Twittersphere's review of Prince's first night in Tempe:
@seerock1023 Prince leaned back/down into crowd&they held him up while he played! He was happy,animated&seemed to really have a blast in AZ— Just me ;) (@IHRTADAM) May 1, 2013
We've never been so envious of the people standing front and center.
Ok, Prince is a bad ass and I have a girl crush on his drummer Anna. Best Marquee show I've seen,... instagram.com/p/YwoUD5Taiu/— Lindsae (@azlinz) May 1, 2013
She was pretty cute.
Can't believe what I just witnessed at Marquee Theatre in AZ. PRINCE + @3rdeyegirl + Larry Graham... side stage with George Benson.Mental.— Trevor Guy (@trevguy) May 1, 2013
We can't believe it, either.
It was worth the wait.
Great show Prince at Marquee in Tempe, AZ. Sound was a little off and it was hot, but then so was the show! 3rdEyeGirl ROCKS!— Doc'ur O'Dell Rhodes (@DocurRhodes) May 1, 2013
It was quite sweaty, but no big.
Let's hope there's one tomorrow.
Wait, did someone sneak a camera in?
