Prince announces another epic residency on 'Lopez Tonight'
Other times he’ll record collections of absurdly politicized lit- jazz tunes. And just when you think he has retired to Paisley Park to hide from the world and do whatever it is guys in those houses do, he ....
appears like a magical sprite to announce another big event.
On last night’s episode of Lopez Tonight, the Purple One suddenly appeared out of nowhere to reveal not only that he was going to be playing the show next Wednesday (April 13) but that he was also launching a 21-night residency in Los Angeles.
Prince always seems to show up unexpected and in the most curious places (not unlike Bigfoot, or a Christopher Walken cameo). His appearance on Lopez’s show next week is probably the biggest booking in the show’s brief history, and Lopez is actually becoming quite a force for after-hours music performances on TV (who else would think to book 2010 viral hitmaker Antoine Dodson?). Prince very rarely finds himself on the sets of late night shows, though he did do a residency on The Tonight Show at the end of Jay Leno’s first run.
So what song—or songs—should Prince bust out on Lopez Tonight next week? We’re always happy to hear a little "Kiss", “Let’s Go Crazy” or “Little Red Corvette,” but maybe he’ll reach deeper into the back catalog for a hidden gem. Is it too much to hope for “Let’s Pretend We’re Married”?
