The opening act was Cee Lo Green (of Gnarls Barkley) - who did an amazing set... and who later came back out (Encore #2) to sing the Gnarls Barkley hit "Crazy" with Prince on guitar.

The show was at least 2 1/2 hours long... maybe longer.

The energy was EXTREMELY high!

All I can say is: FREAKIN' PHENOMENAL!

(Life is good!)
