Concert promoter Live Nation told KTVU the tickets for this week's concerts only went on sale last Friday because even the promoter didn't know Prince was coming to Oakland until last week.
"His shows are really incredible, which is a testament to why he can sell out two arenas on a week's notice," said Live Nation President Rick Mueller.
But everyone did leave trying to figure out how to get tickets and get their butts back to the Oracle Arena later on this week. One Prince show just isn't enough. Which means, of course, that it's everything an arena concert should be.Mercury News
What carried this show through spots of odd pacing, weak song selection and other foolishness was Prince’s gigantic stage presence. This guy has charisma to spare, whether he’s just dancing under the spotlight or throwing down some mean licks on his electric guitar, and everything about him screams star.
