Prince’s Rally 4 Peace concert in Baltimore benefit concert is going to stream for free on Tidal tomorrow night! Dayum! Of course I laid down $230 for a nice tasty floor seat, so I’ll be getting crazy in B’More live. In case you didn’t know Tidal is Jay Z’s and Kanye’s bid to take on Spotify and other streaming music services. They hope to be different than the other services by partnering with their super star friends to offer unique experiences. One hour of the concert will stream for free and you don’t need to sign up for Tidal to view it. They are going to ask for donations. See if you can spot me in the crowd!
Iconic music artist and multi-talented entertainer, Prince, has announced a special RALLY 4 PEACE concert in Baltimore, Maryland scheduled for Mother’s Day, Sunday May 10th. The show will take place at the Royal Farms Arena. In a spirit of healing, the event is meant to be a catalyst for pause and reflection following the outpouring of violence that has gripped Baltimore and areas throughout the US. As a symbolic message of our shared humanity and love for one another, attendees are invited to wear something gray in tribute to all those recently lost in the violence. Prince will be joined in Baltimore by his critically acclaimed funk-rock group 3RDEYEGIRL. Several industry superstars have called in support for the event and are expected to attend. I wonder if Prince is going to do Let’s Go Crazy.
Everyone knows of my irrational love of Prince. Imagine my surprise when I get an email from Live Nation with special note from Prince. Naturally I got all excited thinking maybe his Hit and Run Tour was actually coming to Washington, DC. No, it was note promoting Judith Hill’s debut album Back In Time. It’s free until March 25th and it’s funky! Check it out now.
I’m an unabashed Prince fam and will see him almost every chance I can get. Last year I flew to Vegas to see him at The Hard Rock Hotel. Now it looks like he’s going to be playing some gigs in London. London’s calling people! The funny aspect of this Press Conference is his venue. The announcement will be made from singer Lianne La Havas flat. The two met during his last tour and she jammed with him at Paisley Park and she suggested this stunt as a joke.
