Last night, soul-rock icon Prince, shimmering in a gold sequined outfit and ever-high heels, made a rare TV appearance on Lopez Tonight to kick off his 21-day residency in Los Angeles.

Prince and his New Power Generation, along with longtime drummer Sheila E, performed “Laydown” from last year’s 20Ten album, introducing the audience to “that purple bounce.”

Check out his genre-defying blend of rock, hip-hop, funk, and even a little gospel after the jump.

The Los Angeles Times reports that almost 2,500 people requested tickets for the taping. Many missed out on their shot to catch him live on Lopez for free, but if you’re in Cali and have $25 to spend (Okay, those are likely the nosebleed seats. But still.) on what might be one of the best nights of your life, you can buy tickets to his Welcome 2 America show here.

Plan on attending? Have you already been? Let us know.

    I went to the Welcome 2 America Tour when it was here on the East Coast, and I can personally attest that it was absolutely one of the best nights of my life (this, of course, was aided by who I took to the concert, but still). Prince is a once in a lifetime performer and is not to be missed if you have the chance.

    I was there in the front row yesterday and it was amazing. Unlike on the telecast, he did his interview first, then played the 4 (yes FOUR) songs at the end. He did a fantastic version of D.M.S.R. from 1999 after the cameras stopped rolling! What an amazing experience!

  • vera

    I love D.M.S.R!! Good for you buddy. Prince live is addictive!

  • Sparky

    Saw him 3 times in the Garden and it was absolutely the best concert going experience EVER!!!

  • Christa

    I have seen him too many times to count including in the UK….don’t miss out! Best performer EVER!!

    I saw Prince in Greensboro, NC about 3 weeks ago now and it was one of the best concerts I have ever seen. We also had the last seats (row BBB)in the arena and it was still fantastic. The man is a fantastic live performer and one helluva guitar player! Just awesome.

    Again, he wears a Bea Arthur Golden Girl inspired outfit. WTF?

  • John Maddening

    Lopez called this the “world premiere”of this song? It’s been playing on the radio for months!
