Prince is that one artist that should be on everyone’s bucket list and CelebNMusic247.com feels you haven’t lived until you expiernce Prince. His enegy, his music, and the way he interacts with his fans is truly one of a kind.

Here is what went down at the Hollywood Palladium:

Prince & the NPG electrified fans at the historical Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles, CA. Just having come off a completely sold-out “Hit N Run” UK Tour, US fans were the first to bask in all its show surprises.

The crowd partied like it was 1999 as DJ Dougie Fresh battled Prince with an insane beat-box vs. guitar cameo, Janelle Monae getting pulled onto stage during a James Brown instrumental set, and Marsha Ambrosius singing background vocals at one point for the legend himself.

Always a man of mystery, we’re anxious to see where the legendary Prince will pop up next!

Thank you Prince!
