Dear LAist,

I read your article about Prince being at the Roosevelt Hotel this summer. I remember seeing a sign that said something like, "the revolution is coming". Were they telling us something?

- I'm Not Usually Around Hollywood & Highland, Really

While his multi-night residency at the Roosevelt Hotel has not been officially announced, if Prince does go ahead and play seven consecutive Friday night concerts in the cozy comforts of the Hollywood Blvd hotel, that would be a mighty awesome series of events.

True Prince no longer calls his backing band The Revolution (he let Wendy & Lisa and a few of the others go in the late '80s), but something along the lines of the Purple One playing to a small crowd of about 300, then having a specially appointed chef provide dinner, followed by a Prince jazz show, is something that would take a fair amount of planning.

Also such a cool thing would make someone, say, a marquee maker, have a hard time keeping to himself.
