Xtra bonus tracks: The Pigalle Club jam lead by Mike Phillips, 17.09.2007 pm, 23'
The Pigalle Club is posh nightclub decorated in purple where Prince & The NPG hung out on some of their days (nites) off. On Monday nites Patrick Alan presents the legendary "Music Box Live", an open live jam session feat.
soul, R&B and funk music. Various members of the NPG, mainly Mike Phillips, guested on several of those nites and became friends with local artists (John Altman, Patrick Alan, Raiyn, Duke, Vula, etc.) who would then in turn guest on some of the indigO2 nites.
The Pigalle Club is also the place where Grupo Fantasma (as Brownout) played their warm-up show (prior to warming-up for Prince at The O2). Prince might have been tossing the idea to play a night-club concert at the beautiful Pigalle, but surely didn't want to draw attention away of the O2 concept (and might have been CONtractually bound as well)...
12 I Wanna Be Your Lover (vox: Beverley Knight)

-Freddie's Dead [Curtis Mayfield] (instr.)
"Pigalle is definitely a cool place 2 c some funk�c we hope the NPG graces the stage there again sometime soon! What a treat: one more again in London!"

DVD9: "Planet Earth Is A Stage" - London O2 Videos 2007 - Reel #1
Technical specifications:
NTSC, code-free (all regions), DVD9 DL (double layer) = double capacity
Contents:
Nite 14, O2 Arena, 01.09.2007 pm, 107'
This abolutely xclusive, yet uncirculating O2 Arena video is the only O2 performance which offers a complete show (no material missing). It offers a direct view of the stage, but also focuses on the video screen at some points, e.g. during the piano sit-down. The video has been paired with the best audio around, an excellent uncirculating source. And this is only the beginning, since there is more rare material "out there"...
The show itself is a special one: The first main show in September and the very last Saturday nite show of Prince's stay in London 2007 - and it feels! Prince was definitely on fire that nite: 'I might be small, but so is dynamite!' he proclaimed before explaining "The Rules". The show started with an unusual psychedelic "thunderstorm" intro, somewhat reminiscent of the Purple Rain tour interlude. For "Musicology", special guest Will.i.am came on stage and added some freestyle raps. Mr. Dynamite proceeded to give his purple fans a great hot concert and ended the show with a highly-explosive late encore: This was the only main show lasting *past* the 23:00h curfew! Which means that "Let's Go Crazy" probably resulted in somebody having to pay a hefty monetary fine - And it was only the beginning of the nite…
Nite 11, O2 Arena, 25.08.2007 pm, 100'
This video has been given "the full treatment": All 10 (!) breaks have been smoothly edited, missing views have been carefully completed by other video material, and the audio has been replaced by the best audio source around. This enhanced video version offers a much improved experience, and nicely completes 3121 London Week#4 as well.
Planet Earth video clips
The DVD features all 3 official video clips from the Planet Earth album: Guitar (Verizon Promo) / Chelsea Rodgers / Somewhere Here On Earth
Other Xtras
The DVD includes some other suprises, like The Tour Book Featurette, a different perspective on the making of the "Chelsea Rodgers" video clip, and more.
All of this presented with great themed menus and nice attention to details.
We hope you will fully enjoy this funky ahdio/video experience!
