Prince is an amazing artist that we all know and today he issued an apology…
…for what was a crazy mixup involving a concert that didn’t happen!
“3RDEYEGIRL” is Prince’s awesome band he formed and has been rocking through London in preparation for their debut album “PLECTRUM ELECTRUM” that was released on September 30th!
Prince told the throngs of fans that lined up in the cold rain to get their hands on tickets to see 3RDEYEGIRL’s rumored concert at Massey Hall in Toronto: “We are thankful for the outpouring of love and support and apologize for any confusion surrounding the anticipated performance tonight. Our technical crew is set up in Toronto to rehearse lighting and sound for possible future performances. As Live Nation and Massey Hall announced earlier today, there is not a scheduled performance tonight; there was never confirmation of a show.”
So basically the fans thought that there was a concert at Massey Hall and that it was that night!!! The crazy confusion elicited an apology from the purple wonder himself 🙂
Prince fans in Toronto were on the rage when they noticed a page for a November 4th 3RDEYEGIRL show on Ticketmaster and they saw furniture and white flowers pass through the doors of Massey Hall that day! The venue actually put out barricades to keep fans in an order too!
Some fans waited 12 hours in line with no official word that the show wouldn’t go on!
Live Nation tweeted the following to ward off fans:
I’m so sad for the fans who waited so long without hearing one word from the crew that was working that day that there wouldn’t be a show! And what’s up with that eerie Ticketmaster page that showed up?!
Anyways, I’m glad Prince apologized & I hope 3RDEYEGIRL plays in Toronto soon!
