  • This show was announced as an afterparty shortly before the second NPG Music & Arts Festival show at 10-øren started. During the show Prince himself commented: We are playing somewhere else in this city tonight - I gotta go out tonight.
  • Amager Bio had been booked for a possible aftershow the prior night, but after a torrential rain storm abruptly cut the main show short and causing some of the equipment to get wet, the show was postponed until Sunday night / Monday morning.
  • Doors were due to open at 1:00, but open 30 minutes before that time. Patrons were proceeded to the venue lobby. Doors to the concert hall opened at 1:30.
  • There were no tickets printed. Anyone who paid the admittance (cash or creditcard) went straight inside without an actual ticket.
  • Prince didn’t participate much at all during the set. He didn’t sing at any point. If he was on stage it was to play synth or guitar, but sometimes just to hold up a mic for a trombone player.
  • After the show some 20 patrons unsuccessfully tried to ask for their money back as they argued Prince didn’t perform. Indeed for people on the right side of the stage it might have seemed like that as his contributions were so minimal.
