Prince Comes to Los Angeles to perform a 21 “Nite” Residency

Prince is no stranger to superstardom and when he performs his songs both old and new you definitely want to be there. He is one of the few artists that has consistently produced hits and has stood the test of time as a legendary artist. His career stretches all the way back to 1978 and has spent the next four decades performing countless tours and events including the Superbowl. He has produced 10 platinum albums and thirty top 40 singles throughout his career. Prince has also won 7 Grammy awards and inducted into the rock and roll hall of fame.

Prince called into the George Lopez Show and announced that he will be coming to Los Angeles to have a 21 nite residency. It will kick off this Thursday the 14th at the Los Angeles Forum with the New Power Generation. There will for sure be 2 more shows at the LA Forum on April 21st and April 22nd but the remaining dates and locations have yet to be announced. Prince is scheduled to appear on The George Lopez show today and provide more detail for his tour. Prince has had residency shows before and he frequently has guest appearances for his shows.

Prince does not perform too often and he has already stated that he wants these shows to be affordable. He has said that “roughly 85% of all tickets will be available for $25, inclusive of all service fees” There should be more shows here in Los Angeles once the final dates are announced so be sure to get your tickets as soon as possible because they always sell out.

Jazz Legend Herbie Hancock Will Be Performing This Saturday, March 5th

Jazz Legends are hard to come by and when one with a touch of cool and funk pulsating through his veins is in town you definitely want to check it out. Herbie Hancock will be performing with his band for a one night only performance this Saturday, March 5th at the Walt Disney Concert Hall. Herbie Hancock is a true icon of not only jazz music but modern music. He started off as a child prodigy that was able to play instruments well beyond his age and eventually joined the great Miles Davis Quintet. He helped give birth to what many consider the birth of jazz-fusion with his work on Bitches Brew and In a Silent Way. He made a successful and prosperous transition into a solo career which helped him get 12 Grammy’s including album of the year for River: The Joni letters. His career spans over 5 decades and he is one of the few artist that has been able to successfully transcend many different genres. Herbie has been able to cross over into electronic jazz, pop, R&B, acoustic jazz, hip hop and even techno.

Herbie Hancock will be joined by his quartet band including heavyweights Wayne Shorter, Dave Holland and Vinnie Colaiuta. Wayne shorter is a talented and gifted musician who will be on the tenor saxophone. Dave Holland who was also a part of Miles Davis band will be on the bass. Vinnie Colaiuta is an American drummer who has worked with the great Frank Zappa. The great part about Herbie Hancock is you never know what to expect and he just might blow you away with a traditional jazz piece and then take you to another place with something funky and hip that you never thought would work but it does.
