Wow thats a lot of money to turn down?!?!?

He's turned down millions all over the world for concerts he couldn't or didn't want to do. Not to mention the fact that he really limited sponsorship and corporate deals in his touring. Also, his Hit n Run style of touring always kept ticket prices low for a majority of his tours.

There is no doubt he could've seriously cashed out on the concert front. A Revolution reunion tour would have broke records worldwide.

I get where you're coming from. I was surprised to hear about NYE too.



Prince was so opposed to the corruption inherent in the system of middle men in corporations... everybody getting their piece of the pie and hiding it legalese... maybe he preferred dealing with only the guy at the top?

He played there in 2009 also.



Because people are wealthy it does not mean they are inherently evil. It also takes money to run a record lable and recording studio.

You obviously don't know much about Abramovich...

Not entirely true, he turned down that amount of money to perform a bar mitzvah ,he didn't think it was cool enough for him that's what van said.

CyndiGR

so the reason for his turning it down wasn't politically based, but because it wasn't cool enough?

Why would Prince even associate with these people? There is a lot of info on this guy; too much to write about here, but he's a shady character, to say the least.

In your research, you missed the names of other famous people who attend Abromavich parties.

REMEMBER: when you play one of those (and it was strictly business), you are playing for other potential customers.

Did you really expect P to hire private investigators against everyone he did business with?
Nah wink

Nah, I didn't miss the names of other famous people; it's just too much to write about here.
