prince Prince Played a Surprise Show in New York This Morning Until 6 A.M.

While we were still entertained/outraged/[whatever other thing you may have felt] about Miley Cyrus’ twerking at the VMAs last night, Prince, the High Priest of Pop, was busy playing a surprise gig in New York. Gracing the stage at City Winery, he began to play his 32-song set at 3 in the morning alongside The New Power Generation, 3rd Eye Girl, Doug E. Fresh, and Cee-Lo Green, until 6:00 AM (yes, you read right). VMAs ain’t got nothing on the 55-year-old Purple One. Check out the setlist below, via Prince.org.
