Prince Performs ‘All Day/All Night’ In Paris, France

2 Concerts in 1 Day/Night

Prince, after attending the Chanel Spring 2010 Fashion Show inside the Grand Palais exhibition hall at Paris Fashion Week last week, decided to play 2 impromptu concerts at the Grand Palais in Paris, France last night. Titled All Day/All Night, Prince performed a full concert at 5PM local and then another show at 10PM local … tickets for both shows sold out entirely minutes after they went on sale. Here are a few photos from Prince‘s performances last night and some deets about the shows themselves:


US rock star Prince has decided to give two concerts Sunday at a landmark Paris building he visited and liked this week, the glass-and-iron Grand Palais exhibition hall, producers said Wednesday. Prince, who was already mulling a concert in Paris, on Tuesday attended Karl Lagerfeld’s Chanel catwalk show at the exhibition hall on the banks of the Seine and “liked the venue”, officials at the Grand Palais told AFP. Titled “All Day/All Night” the concerts are to be held at 5 p.m. (1500 GMT) and 10 p.m. (2000 GMT) with prices and booking details to be announced later. The rock star return to visit the spectacular glass and cast iron vaults of the Grand Palais hall on Wednesday with a production team and “is very enthusiastic about the concerts,” the source added. The Grand Palais can seat up to 6,000 people but the number of tickets available will depend on the format of the performance.

As you may recall, I was able to see Prince play 3 concerts in one night back in March but it sounds like these performances at the Grand Palais last night were really fantastic. It’s no secret at all that Prince is a stunning live performer, I’m certain that the folks who were able to attend his shows last night had themselves an amazing time. Judging by the setlist, they also got their money’s worth. After the jump check out the setlists for both of Prince‘s shows at the Grand Palais and watch a short snippet video of Prince performing 1999 in Paris, France last night …

Here is a short vid of Prince performing 1999:


While the shows sounded really cool, I think it would’ve been a much better idea for Prince to change up the setlists a bit more … I understand that not everyone in attendance went to both performances but for the die-hard fans who did shell out a considerable chunk of change to attend both shows it would’ve been nice if they got some variety … Prince deffo has the catalog to play a lot of different songs. Sounds like it was a great night for live music in Paris.

    He may not be able to bust those moves anymore because of his new titanium hips but it looks like he still puts on a great show!
    Good for him for showing everybody that you don’t have to give up what you love doing just because you had to have hip surgery!
    Rock on Mr. Nelson!

  4. prince is on par with madonna for being the most overrated performer ever! i really don’t see his (their) appeal..

  5. Chris

    Blasphemy!! As it comes to above statement regarding the overrated and Madonna comment.
    If anything he’s highly underrated. People who claim differently are just proving their lack of musical knowledge…
    Thx for the short report!!
