Prince Plays Surprise Show In Paris

PRINCE thrilled fans in France on Thursday night (22Jul10) when he took to the stage for a surprise show - and performed until daylight broke.
The Purple Rain hitmaker played a set at the tiny, 500-capacity New Morning Club in Paris in the early hours of Friday (23Jul10), after news of the gig leaked on Twitter.com just hours earlier.
He kept the audience waiting until 2.30am before appearing onstage - but then sent them into a frenzy with a set of lesser-known tracks as well as classic hits including Kiss, Raspberry Beret, and Cream. The rocker was even joined by soul singer Erykah Badu, who sang with him on three tracks.
And after telling the crowd he would perform "til the sun comes up", Prince kept his word - he played six encores and closed the show at 6.15am.

I was there at the show, and Erykah Badu never performed any songs with Prince. She was there, but never stepped onstage.
