Any reports on the concert tonight?

Was wondering if there is anyone posting about what former band members are playing?
Which concert footage is being shown?
Until the end of time

I can't tell who is there beside her either. The person recording isn't too far away but far enough that I can't tell who's there.

This is what I posted in the main forum. In a word, the show was phenomenal.worth every penny.

Prince Live On The Big Screen was phenomenal
Just got back from seeing Prince Live On The Big Screen and I have one word for the show: phenomenal. It was all footage of Prince with the live backing band. The footage was taken from different Welcome 2 America shows. The backing band was Shelby, Kirk, Kip, Kat, Cassie, NPG Horns and I’m not sure the other keys player or who was on bass. The band was tight and never out of sync with the video of Prince. The footage was amazing video quality. As good as the band was I hardly ever looked at them because I was focus on the big screen with Prince. Shelby was sort of master of ceremonies but there was very little talking in between songs. It wasn’t about Shelby or the band it was about Prince. I’m still amazed at how they were able to pull it off. I felt like I was at a Welcome 2 show. And the sound in the arena was amazing too. Die hard fans who want more than just the hits probably would have been disappointed but considering the audience this was perfect.

I didn’t know what to expect going in and was worried about how polished it would be or if it would feel weird but it didn’t at all. It felt like Prince was right there on stage with the rest of the band. It felt good. Obviously someone professional who’s done this before directed this. Hats off to them. I don’t know if Paisley has any plans to take it on the road but they could. It was that good. 💜

I see both local papers gave the concert meh to bad reviews. Both complained about seeing too much of the backing band. Jon Bream wished the video screen had been in front of the band. Shoot, then you might as well just run the video and not even have a backing band. The band got huge applause at the end of the show and everyone I spoke to afterwards said the loved it. Shame newspaper reviews feel they have to be critical all the time.

Nice review and thanks for sharing the link. Great to hear that considering this is the very first time they have done this, it went over fairly well and had an ok crowd turnout. Perhaps they will make this a tradition. Never heard about P and Dr. Fink getting arrested over the airplane bullhorn, learn something new everyday, LOL.

Love is God, God is love, girls and boys love God above.
RIP Sweet Prince

Sorry, Jon Bream - the band added to the live experience for me. The focus was on Prince and not a single band member tried to take the focus off of him. It was clear, this was a man that meant so much to so many. Sounds like the critics are in the minority.

Loved the Hornz. Adrian posted this on Instagram.
