Bummer!

A Super Bowl benefit show featuring Prince and Erykah Badu was canceled on Friday after its financial backing fell through.

The event was organized by The Goss-Michael Foundation, a group founded by George Michael and his longtime partner Kenny Goss.

However, on Friday, organizers announced that the show switched venutes shortly before canceling the event all together.

Organizer, River Alexander Group, "was unable to fund and produce the evening. Up the very last minute, they assured us the 'show would go on,'" according to Joyce Goss, executive director of the foundation.

Sources say the real problem came when organizers were unable to pay for Prince and his band to travel to the concert.

The insider adds, "Prince is extremely disappointed that the organisers were unable to bring him and his band to Dallas. They say that apparently they lost their investors and were unable to adequately fund the event."

Awww. Such a disappointment! We bet a lot of those concertgoers are upset they can't see Prince. We'd be mad too!

    If he REALLY wanted to do it, I think he could have funded his own trip . . .

    Thats a bunch of bullshit…I live outside of Dallas…it was all over the news…Prince was already in town and infact pulled up to the venue..but for whatever reason he never got out of the car…and the other bitch never left her hotel room. They have pictures and video of them arriving. So for them to say they didnt get money to get here is crap…he's pathectic anyway..who the fuck would pay to see his hasbeen ass?

    And somehow this will be Prince's fault even though it was the promoters who couldn't get their shit together.

    @JeremyLN, First of All I highly doubt this story is True. Prince doesn't need anyone to fund his trips, but business is business and if you wanna insult the guy, by calling him a "has been", then maybe you should rethink on some other names. Because Prince is far from beyond a has been. He's sold more than 100 million records, Won every Award Imaginable to be given to an Artist. His last 4 CD's all Debuted in the top 3 on Billboards top 200 albums charts, his last few concert tours ranked #1. Musicology back in 2004, made him 90 million dollars, the album for that Tour stayed in the top 10 for several months. His 21 Nights Tour in London - SOLD OUT COMPLETELY!!! He also had the most viewers ever at the 2007 Superbowl Half Time Show, which was voted #1 half time show ever!!! He also, SOLD OUT THE MADISON SQUARE GARDENS 6 TIMES IN NEW YORK. Since 2010… his final show is this week!!!
    SO FUCK OFF!!! Prince isn't a has been and he's very much relevant to music as he was back in 1984. LEARN YOUR HISTORY AND GET YOUR FACTS STR8!

    The whole thing sounds like a bit of a clustermuck, with both sides putting forth differing stories about what happened. Too bad, for both.

    Re: TheSanzSpot – You just proved my point dumbass!!! You did not mention ANYTHING in the last 6 years. Jamie Lee Curtis won every award imaginable and her hasbeen ass is pushing yogurt that makes you poop. He is creepy as hell and way to full of himself. I only feel bad for the people that got jipped, because they were actually excited to see him, and that in itself is sad. He is pathetic and retarded. The only way he would ever be relavant again is to join Micheal Jackson.

    Prince was already in town. If he'd wanted to help raise funds for the non-profit organization, he could have - and helped the organization be able to sponsor more of its charitable works.

    Prince is awesome. He has made alot of money off the public and should have gone on with the benefit.

    Re: TheSanzSpot – Right on the spot. Couldn't have said it better myself. Prince is a living legend, rock n roll hall of famer, and one of the most talented musicians of all time! Ignore all these ignorant mothafuckas who want to deny his importance and sign him off as a "hasbeen".

    Re: TheSanzSpot – What no response? Thats becuase your a dumbass bitch

    He should really find a guitar his size.



  13. 13

    Maybe Prince should realize he's old news and lower his price a bit.

    Re: TheSanzSpot
    I love it! Give these ignorant deaf-tone idiots some insight. Oh and by the way Prince also happens to be the ONLY artist/multi-instrumentalist in the history of music to be on the covers of Bass Player magazine, Guitar Magazine, Keyboard magazine and Drummer magazine. All because he is a virtuoso aon all the and many other instruments! No other multi-istrumentalist has eve done this. That alone makes him totally relevant in my book!!!!
