  • This show was announced only very shortly before it began. At 9 minutes past midnight, someone working for the venue tweeted: "The purple man will be playing at Bennett’s lane .... Shortly. ‪#shhh" DJ Rashida made a mention of it via her twitter account after it had already begun. It was also advertised on the website of the club, simply reading 'Prince tonight". It was much more of an impromptu event that the regular 'Afterjams'
  • The next day the venue site had the event on the calender as 'Monday 28th May 2012 : Prince - @ 1:30am, Jazz Club Gigs" with the first lines of Ain’t No Place Like U: I told all my friends don’t be callin’ me / Cuz there ain’t nothin’ that I wanna see / I called my job and quit workin’ overtime / Cuz I've got somethin’ that’s been on my mind / Cuz baby it’s true, ain’t no place like U and the comment: 'THIS WAS LAST NIGHT FROM 1:30am - THIS GIG HAS HAPPENED... IT WAS AWESOME!!!! '
  • Tamborine is performed by John Blackwell alone, who plays the song first drums lines at Prince’s request.
  • Love 2 The 9’s rendition is a short piano instrumental on which Prince sings the first lines only.
