Prince fans told stories of waiting outside overnight to get tickets. Bloggers endlessly critiqued the show. But what was the Purple One's impromptu concert like from the club's point of view?
St. Paul, Minn. — Current host Mary Lucia talks to Koreen Valdovinos, public relations coordinator at First Avenue, where musician Prince performed a last-minute concert on July 7.
Prince waited until Thursday evening to announce that he would play a show at the legendary Minneapolis club on Saturday. First Avenue employees found out about the concert around the same time the general public did.
Mary Lucia has earned a large fan base with her work as a broadcast personality, writer, actor and voice-over talent.
