Prince shows announced at the last minute

What did you think of Prince announcing shows/performances/tours at the last minute?

Where you ever caught off guard or did you have a Prince fund in your bank? giggle

Last minute show announcements didn't give me time to scrape up enough money to be able to go to any of Prince's shows. I was either: A. Working and wasn't able to ask for time off early enough to be able to go. B. A poor college student. or C. On a fixed monthly income to where I didn't have all that much left over after paying regular monthly expenses.

I am very grateful, though, that I have been able to watch videos of his performances.

No matter your age, pursue your dreams so that you will LIVE.

What she said^^^^

1: I couldn't put off work with a sometimes 24/48 hour notice rolleyes

2: By the time I found out Prince was in town, ticket's were sold out.

3 Could I really afford to buy at least 2 tickets, drive at least an hour away. Find parking, gas..etc (Yes I've done it, but also passed on many occasions)

It is what it is.. I got to see him 7 times 😇

There was only one time when I was upset about it as I had already committed to going away for a few days with my parents and couldn't cancel on them a couple days before. My husband ended up going to the show with a friend. He still holds it over my head - LOL, otherwise, I was on the phone ordering tickets and was always successful. So glad I saw him March 25, 2016, although it was the last time. sad

It was a nightmare. Missed so many of the 3rdEyeGirl London gigs because it was impossible to rearrange things. Just created work/family/money issues. And looking forward to a gig is fun in itself. So, yeah, bullshit.

Happened to be online when he did this in 2014 and was able to get tix to two back to back shows at a small venue. My last time seeing Prince. No regrets.

If he didn't announce it last minute and got me and my mom all excited, I probably would've never seen him.

Unfortunately, I was working when he came back for the P&M shows so I told myself Ill see him next time..
That won't happen.
