Suddenly Prince

After a terrible weekend of non-stop rain, the death of Amy Winehouse and the horibble events in Oslo, i was glad that monday was almost there. Checking Facebook around 10 ‘o clock i saw that it was confirmed that Prince would play at the Melkweg, a small venue only 5 minutes from where i live. The whole Prince entourage was in Amsterdam two days earlier because of Oslo (The Ahoy-concert was on Tuesday) and Prince deciced to give two night-concert at the Melkweg. I couldn’t believe it and rushed on my bike to the place and reckoned that it wasn’t impossible for me to get in. First i had to get 100 euro in cash from the ATM (together with a lot of other Prince fans). An hour later i was in! Everyone was very excited. These Prince night concerts are legendary and i always wished i had been to one. Around midnight the New Power Generation band started to warm up the crowd. Altough Shelby j is a great singer, it was a litle bit to long i think, but after one more hour Prince finally took the stage and gave a superb concert. It was everything i hoped it would be… what a night! At 4’0 clock i only had a few more hours of sleep to catch before i had to go to work but i did’nt mind.
