Paisley Museum Gets Approved

Chanhassen city council just approved rezoning Paisley Park as a museum. Days of operation right now will be Thursday thru Sunday 9am to 9pm. A number of business owners/chamber of commerce members got up and spoke in favor saying it will be good for the city and they've already seen an increase in business. smile

Awright, that's what I called getting down to business...so happy...Prince would be happy for all the work and years he put into PP. I think it was his plan from the beginning for the fans. By the way, did you realize that the foyer of PP resembles the inside of a guitar? It's amazing...what a genius...

Complaining about Uber and Lyft...geez if they're that worried about just tell them to drop off and pick up at the parking ramp and let people bus to the site. Graceland can provide this info to both companies so they can update their GPS systems. Not complicated! Plus Graceland said uber and lyft traffic was less than 1% of ticket buyers. Good grief.

Paisley museum gets approved

Paisley Park is a permanent museum.

.

The Chanhassen City Council voted unanimously Monday to rezone the property at Highway 5 and Audubon Road to allow Prince's iconic studio to open to tourists on an ongoing basis.

For the past month the facility has been open on a temporary basis while concerns about traffic and pedestrian safety were reviewed.

As part of the decision, McGlynn Road next to Paisley Park will be closed to dissuade pedestrians from crossing Audubon Road. A permanent median also will be installed on Audubon at the Highway 5 intersection to prevent left-hand turns into Paisley Park.

.


Interesting. McGlynn Road is the one by the preschool. Currently, you enter/exit their parking lot from McGlynn. So they are going to have to reconfigure all that? confuse

Start a thread in the Fan Gatherings forum! cool We can see how much interest there is in doing such a thing.

I'm not a good candidate to organize something myself, as I will be off the grid a lot over the next several months. But I am definitely interested in participating! nod


During my trip this month, I stayed at the Radisson Blu downtown MPLS which was very nice but pricey! Three nights, including tax and parking, was $547! But next time I go up there I am going to do a lot of things differently, lol wink

It would be cool if they had tours Thursday-Sunday and booked the studio Monday-Wednesday. Also some nights have concerts on the soundstage and music education events etc. I bet more stuff will happen eventually when they find a groove.

It was honestly a fantastic experience to visit Paisley Park. I highly recommend it. They hired the most welcoming staff. Touring in small groups of 15 allowed a certain rapport between people sharing the same interest. Some fans with personal experiences would share unique memories and recount as if they were living it once again. Paisley Park is clean and seems well taken care of. The people I toured with were respectful to all artifacts. There was a good energy too.

I am considering going back with more people now that it is officially a museum and open for more tours.

I am so glad to see that the re-zoning has finally taken place. Now we fans can breath a sigh of relief knowing that we can eventually make the trek to this Mecca. I think I will try to make it this coming April or May for myself. I've been told not to go in the summer months as it's far too humid.

I feel the same way. I was there between 2000-2002 during the 1st celebration and all the Friday night parties thereafter until he closed to go on tour. A great time! biggrin

YES!!! Thank you for sharing this picture. Nice memory.

During that concert, members of the Revolution (Mark Brown, Dr. Fink, and Bobby Z) came on stage and played with Prince.

Then, we all got to have an after-party at Paisley Park.

Kind of an interesting piece written by a "super fan" suggesting ways to improve the PP tours: https://scottwoodsmakesli...er-museum/

a really good article.

Was fortunate to gop to the 1st ever celebration & it was stunning. Tour guides were super knowledeable, saw more rooms than I could have ever imagined, working band in the studio [FonkyBald heads!] , various NPG band mates freely walking round & chatting etc. Instruments galore, stories galore..got to play on the Linn Drum machine!! etc.

Me neither. While I got 2 c Prince live in concert many times in different venues, I wished I got 2 visit PP while he was still alive; never thought he'd be gone this soon. Going there now would just break my heart especially when I know his ashes are right there when I walk in. sad

I just got home from my tour. It was nice and I hope the museum is a success. I'm glad I went but I think its a bit over priced for what you get.
The gift shop was disappointing. Hoping they add more items. Mostly leftover t shirts from past tours is what I saw. I wanted a shirt but not one from a tour I never attended.

I got pretty emotional initially upon starting the tour but managed to control myself until the end while we watched his super bowl performance. I had to seek refuge in the bathroom for a few minutes while I composed myself and dried my tears. My favorite part just off the top of my head were the doves for some reason. It was comforting somehow seeing them and hearing them cooing. I could imagine Prince in that space, enjoying their presence as well.

I heard one person in our group say he was disappointed we didn't get to see more as far as personal living space. Altho i admit I wanted to know what was up those stairs too I knew it wasn't part of the tour and wasn't expecting it. I was pleasantly surprised with how light it was in there as the place lacks windows but there are lots of skylights overhead.

Our tour guide was fine but didnt offer any information I didn't already know. Never tried any of the food offered in the cafe area off the gift shop. All in all it was nice to get a glimpse behind the scenes at PP. The round bldg looks to be in disrepair somewhat. Hope they fix it up and use it for something in the future.

I still think its a waste to let all that equipment and those studios stand empty and quiet. Artists should be encouraged to use PP for what it was meant to be. Concerts should be held there. Just my two cents. Staff we encountered were all nice and pleasant.

Thank you so much for sharing this. I want to go so bad. I will make it there when my heart heals a

bit more. I think the doves would be my undoing. I agree that the studios should not sit unused, and

that there should be concerts held. I also think that showing past live concerts would be awesome.

Again, thank you so much for sharing. heart

Thank you for sharing this. I am planning on going next year, probably in May. At first I was going to go in April but I think it would be too much emotionally to deal with. I'll probably end up in the bathroom with leaky eyes myself. I still am grieving, like many of us here.

The original business plan did mention limited use of recording studios and monthly concerts for the future. I think it's early days and things will change over time. I'll be curious to see how it does over the winter when it's cold and snowy in Minnesota.

Yeah, I worry about that too. In the meantime I think The Revolution should go on tour and have Sheila E and The Time as their opening act. They could play small clubs. I'd pay $100 to see that. Enthusiasm for Paisley Park will slowly wane. Not enough casual fans even know it exists.

The price for the dance party last night was reduced to $25. I saw a couple posts on Twitter from people who went and it sounds like they had a good time and the DJ was great. I think it can be successful but prices will probably have to come down a bit. It's possible they're pricing things to get a feel for how much people are willing to pay and will adjust prices accordingly in the future.

Chicago Tribune story on PP. Seems he felt the emptiness and loss.

http://www.chicagotribune.com/entertainment/music/ct-paisley-park-visit-ent-1207-20161206-column.html

Paisley Park a lonesome kingdom without Prince

by Christopher Borrelli

"...If you can read between the lines and offer the rigorous eye that an often-groundbreaking artist demands, I recommend a visit to Paisley Park. What Prince created here was complicated, an elaborate system for reassuring himself he was still the king, even as he shifted from iconoclastic superstar to nostalgia act. He seemed to surround himself with a web of employees who met his whims and allowed room to create whatever he dreamed up but probably couldn't offer much in the way of criticism...Still, there's a touching sadness at the margins, an ennui to the coldness of Paisley Park.

"...it's tough to pretend this place was a monument to the artistic urge when it seems so much now like a mausoleum of lonesomeness. Whatever Prince was doing in Paisley Park had to be released to the world, and increasingly the response was indifference."

"Hold on to your souls y'all. We got a long way to go. Thank you! We love y'all!"

Anyone else have VIP tickets for this Thursday, December 22 at 11 AM? Just arrived in Minneapolis for Christmas. Haven't been home in years. Before driving home to rural Minnesota had to take a tour of Paisley Park. Haven't been there for at least 10 years. if you are on the same tour message me.

Has anyone heard any details about how well attended the tours and other events at PP have been since the tribute in October.

I was just over on my Ebay page and there was a banner at the top of the page advertising the tours, so hopefully they are doing alright.
