LA Could Get Prince For 7 Weeks
Posted by Molli Fire on Tuesday, 22May07
More Prince residencies! Oooooh, this looks like such a swEEt gig too! Prince, born Prince Rogers Nelson, is working out a contract to perform for seven straight Friday nights at the Roosevelt Hotel in Los Angeles. Prince would be joined by a different guest each week and perform from 11:30-1:30 in the Blossom Room. Wait, it gets even better! At 2am when most shows are ending, and audiences heading home, Prince’s chef takes over the hotel kitchen, and the restaurant turns into an after-hours dinner club while Prince woos the diners with his Jazz ensemble until 4am! Dang i want a gig like that when i have a chef!
The stint starts June 15 and runs through July. We’ll see if the deal works out… Watch the LA Times for the details.
Prince will be staying in the Roosevelt Hotel with his band during this time, rehearsing for 2 concerts in the Hamptons (NYC) and a 21 concert series in London this summer. I like his style, how often does an artist enjoy a nice leisurely tour, sleeping in a big comfortable bed each night…
