So Paul McCartney is playing Amoeba TOMORROW, and despite my connections, I'm not gonna be able to see him. My pal who works there actually sent out an email yesterday to head off the inevitable flurry of requests. She said it's a circus down there and that people were camping out as of Monday night and she had no pull on this one so don't even ask. Oh well. I've seen some pretty crowded shows there and you can't see anything above the CD racks anyway! Love The Beatles but not enough to camp out in hopes of hearing a classic or two. (Sir P is sure to play mostly from his new CD right?)
Now Prince is another story. In case ya havent heard, the purple one is playing seven exclusive dates at the Roosevelt Hotel.
Dubbed the 3121 sessions, the Artist will debut new music including "Guitar," the first single off unreleased album, "Planet Earth." And you know there's always some corporate tie-in right? 3121 guests can download "Guitar" right at the venue for free courtesy of Verizon Wireless' V CAST Song ID program.
Anyway, VIP packages, including dinner at the Dakota (tax, alcohol, and gratuity excluded), will be limited to 130 seats, sold in pairs (65) for $3121.00. An additional 70, standing room only tickets will be made available for $312.10 each.
He already played last weekend, he's got two more shows this weekend and the rest of the dates are TBA. We're seriously gonna "Get Crazy" if we don't work it into one of those gigs! We'll keep you posted.
As for P-Hil, yeah she's outta jail. She's changing her life, her image, blah, blah, blah. She'll gab all about it on Larry King tomorrow night, looking gorgeously groomed (today's TV "news" reported she's already gotten a facial and new hair extentions! And no, I have no idea what's going in Iraq today). I'll probably watch it and I'll hate myself for it.
But ya know what I'll hate even more? If I see paparazzi photos of the reformed party gal at one of my Prince's shows! Then I'll really get nuts.
