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.

“Vicious”

Lou Reed | 1972

Opening Lou Reed's 1972 solo album, the hard-riffing "Vicious" actually traces its origin back to Reed's days with the Velvet Underground. Picking up bits and pieces of songs from the people and places around him, and filing his notes for later use, Reed said it was Andy Warhol who provided fuel for the song. "He said, 'Why don't you write a song called 'Vicious,'" Reed told Rolling Stone in 1989. "And I said, 'What kind of vicious?' 'Oh, you know, vicious like I hit you with a flower.' And I wrote it down literally."
