Prince will be opening his home to the public for a concert at Paisley Park on Saturday. The concert will reintroduce his band New Power Generation, who reunited in New York earlier this year, and will also include his current band 3rdEyeGirl, City Pages reports. 

Where Does Prince Land on the List of 100 Greatest Artists?

 "We really just wanted to open up Paisley to the public and invite Minnesota and anybody else who can make it out," said New Power Generation drummer Hannah Ford. "This one is moreso like a spur-of-the-moment event to spend time with our community and throw a big concert for everybody and show off some of the stuff we're working on."

A $50 donation will be required at the door and cell phones won't be permitted. 

Prince and 3rdEyeGirl have been working on an album called Plectrum Electrum, but a release date has yet to be announced.

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
