Wow. Funk legend Prince showed up in his hometown of Minneapolis last Friday night at First Avenue, where the best rock & roll movie of all time, “Purple Rain” was filmed and released almost 26 years ago.

A band of local musicians called GAYNGS was playing there and Prince was getting the itch to play. So much so, he brought his own guitar, but decided “They don’t need me” and did not take the stage.

Prince is still rocking the no-makeup look and it is nice to see the brother smile. We have been hearing he has been having a few good reasons to smile lately.

Check out the photos from that night HERE!!!!!!!!!!

He’s still rocking the heels right? Or are we getting some flat footed funk from the purple one?-Dr.FB


Prince at GAYNGS!

Yes, people, it's true: the Purple One casually strolled into First Ave Friday night to check out Gayngs who were having a fantastic time entertaining delighted fans in tuxedos and prom dresses. Prince, according to several witnesses, had a guitar around his neck and was (possibly) thinking about playing, but decided not to. " They don't need me up there" were his words, to be exact. How much do we love this guy?? For the skeptics, we have collected some photo evidence as well. Check out these 3 photos of Prince that our new BFF Claire took backstage at First Avenue:

LOL/OMG offers congratulations to Gayngs for putting on a fantastic show. And of course, big props to Prince for acknowledging and supporting local talent. We heart you.

The Purple One
Prince (almost) joins GayngsBy Andrea Swensson, Monday, May. 17 2010 @ 8:46AMCategories: The Purple One


​Roaming around First Ave after the Gayngs performance, there seemed to be only one shared thought on everyone's minds: "Prince was here!" And unlike Prince's last few public appearances, wherein he sequestered himself in the dark corners of club balconies, His Purpleness damn near took the stage Friday night, guitar in hand, to join in on the fun. The details are a little hazy, but the following account is based on the stories we heard by several members of Gayngs.

After hearing Gayngs on the radio, Prince decided to head down to First Ave Friday night to check out the group in person. He walked into the club with his guitar in hand, which we learned by one of our follower's tweets:
​Prince blended in with the swarm of Gayngs members coming on and off stage, standing near the green room and requesting that a sound man plug in his guitar. He played along off stage for a short while before unplugging and heading out to the parking garage.

Now this is where the stories diverge: Some say that Prince was waiting to be introduced before taking the stage, and decided to leave when no one in Gayngs acknowledged him, while others say he said something to the effect of "Looks like they've got it under control." Either way, we have to admit we're a little sad that Prince didn't end up on stage with the band, but we're hoping this means he's thinking about playing his own show at First Ave soon. Fingers crossed.
