Prince Bailed On Tidal Gig, Everybody Else Played Two Songs Each At Barclays


Not that I would have gone any way, still if I had gone it would have been to see Prince with Hov and Bey, that might have actually made the pain in the neck long ass evening worth the while. Here is the press release


TIDAL X: 1020 Amplified by HTC, the first in a series of philanthropic music events curated by TIDAL, aimed at raising awareness, funds, conscious engagement, and dynamic action for transformative and positive social impact worldwide will be at Barclays Center on October 20

The current line-up for this event is JAY Z, Beyonce, Usher, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, T.I., Rick Ross, Nick Jonas, Meek Mill, French Montana, Travis Scott, Damian Marley, Indochine, Thomas Rhett, Fabolous, DJ Cipha Sounds, DJ Reflex, and TIDAL Rising acts Alessia Cara, Bas, Benjamin Booker, Flatbush Zombies, and Justine Skye.The exclusive performances will feature collaborations on specially chosen songs to promote the message of unity through music.

One hundred percent of ticket proceeds will benefit nonprofit organizations dedicated to advancing positive community relations and effecting systemic change for the development and sustainability of just societies, this inaugural event’s philanthropic focus. 

Tickets are on-sale and can be purchased online at or by calling 800-745-3000.

*Artists are subject to change.

Notice a name missing? Yes, Prince, the cherry on top, was meant to be here to support Tidal -a music streaming service so moribund, Jay Z forgot he was part owner as he attempted to dance his way around forgetting to get clearance for a sample on “Big Pimpin'”. But apparently he wanted to be the little man at the top of the Christmas Tree -like Barbra Streisand, all by himself and has bailed on the only possible reason to go.

No reason was given, but couldn’t he have been big about it?

So it happened yesterday and no Prince, everybody came out and performed two songs and went home, and Nicki performed “Feeling Myself” with Beyoncé, and finally Jay Z came out to perform “You Don’t Know” and threaten this to be a yearly occurrence.

Two songs each? I bet I’d have enjoyed it more than the reviews I’ve read…
