Carlos Santana at Masonic Auditorium in 1979. He played two shows...a 7:30pm and 10:30pm.....I went to the second. At 2:30am he and his band were still playing...wearing a home red wings jersey no less. Everytime he finished a song he'd look out at the crowd and say, "you can't leave yet"..."not till the Sun comes up". It was probably the best concert I've ever seen. He had the tall Brother from "Inner Secrets" with him on that tour (his name slips my mind). That guy could sing.

Back in 1983, I saw Diana Ross do a two-hour long performance on her FOR ONE AND FOR ALL tour.
Shortest: Aretha in 1991 and 1992. Both shows clocked in at little over an hour.

In March of 2002 when Prince played at Avery Fisher Hall, he played for 31/2 hours, 8pm to 11:30 and then played at his after party from 12:30 to 6 am. That boy can go!

R & B I've been seeing JB LIVE since 1966 and the only time I can honestly say he did not put on a good show was in the mid 80's and the band was too mechanical and him & Martha High were singin "Thers no business like show business" ugh..we just couldn't beleive it was the JB SHOW (he was married to the lady from Solid Gold and she was running his show.)

Longest I've seen is P-Funk Halloween 95 in NYC from about 10:30-3:30am, no breaks. In fact all the longest shows I've seen have been P-Funk, although Broooce Springsteen was almost 3 hours and a couple of reggae revue shows feature one intermission for a backing band like the wonderful Lloyd Parks & We The People Band, from 10ish to 3ish with a bunch of singers coming & going... one the best P-Funk shows was the second show of Halloween 96, over three hours long with KC & other guests, they are the epiome of stamina on a good night which is why I hope to see them tomorrow at the Royal Oak theatre...

On July 4th & 5th 1996 for the Return of the Mothership, G.C & P-Funk played in Central Park for four hours straight (6pm/10pm sharp cos' there was a curfew) which is their 'normal' timing... but then they went to TRAMPS and had another 3 1/2 hours aftershow.... LOL That's 7 1/2 hours of music... I don't think this can be topped...
|By GOAT (184.108.40.206) on Friday, March 26, 2004 - 11:22 am:|
New Order played for over 21/4 hours.
Ministry played for 23/4 hours last May at Harpo's.

Smokey was notorious for going overtime. If he was feeling well he'd easily do two hours, doesn't go over as much these days.

It sure is quiet at this site I see. What's up?
Just wanted to pop in to remind the ones interested - that Janet is hosting "Sat Nite Live" tonite.
I like the new forum - yet this one had its good points too, IMO. I will be trying my luck at registering on the new forum somewhere down the line.
Me house is on the market now - so I have been packing - and I've succeeded in taking most things down off the walls. An important selling point is to have the walls clear. That a way - folks can imagine how they would hook it up. LOL!
I hope everyone is doing fine this Easter eve.
Have a good one & "KEEP ON TRUCKIN'"
PPS: I know some of you's have heard Eddie Kendrick's voice piping up all over that commercial that plays that the above tune. Too much! I love it and loved my homeboy.

I forgot. Weldon if you see this - how did last nite go? I hope all went well.
Medusa - hang in there - girlfriend. You are known for starting some interesting threads, indeed. And you know and love good music too. We might not have long left to admire and propell Soul Music thru any type of media before too long, for real.
And Vonnie is soooooo right. Us sista's always have to remain united - and don't care what the circumstances are. S'alright?
May peace continue to be upon us all. Nite.

Hey Weldon. It was entirely sweet of you to holla back. I am soooooo glad you enjoyed yourself. I mean - you done been all up in Mr. Gordy's house and what not. And some of the members of my fave group - "The Tempting Tempts", stayed with you at times. Wow! You went there boyfriend. Keep on keeping on. I wish I could pick your brain like a fish bone, for real. LOL!
I am going to have to get your book. I will be emailing you soon to order one - I promise. I know - that I'll enjoy it immensely, indeed.
Btw - I loved J.J. on Sat Nite Live. She done good, and especially when she did that bit as Condi Rice. I LMAO!
Here is a heads up for all the ones that aren't aware. The Detroit Music Awards will be held on 4-23-04.
Have a good one. Take it tt-easy Weldon.
