Delirious: Fans swoon as Prince rocks with Alabama Shakes at Paisley Park jam


By all accounts, it was an extraordinary night in Chanhassen on Monday.

That's when fans waited in line at Paisley Park not only got to see Alabama Shakes perform in the studio's concert hall. They also got to see the band jam with their host, Prince.

A reporter from FOX 9 was there for a review, writing the Alabama band's lead singer Brittany Edwards was in top form.

"The band played with their soulful energy, much of it delivered through Brittany's searing, emotive vocals ... jumping from soft and smooth to deep and raspy, flawlessly and purposefully," the story said.

The story added that Prince was watching from the back of the room, but "eventually made it on to the stage, and joined Alabama Shakes for a monstrous jam that had the crowd in ecstasy."

The Consequence of Sound blog noted Prince's well-known efforts to maintain privacy were part of the gig. "As this is Prince, nothing in the way of photos of videos have made their way online," the story said.

But Twitter is filled with the reaction of music fans who were there for the night of music.

Alabama Shakes had a busy visit to Minnesota, playing the inaugural show at Hall's Island in Minneapolis on Saturday, fishing on Sunday – a tale told on The Current's blog, and then playing Prince's legendary space on Monday.
