UPDATE 7:00 PM
It’s being said that Gwen will perform some of Prince’s songs, NOT hers or No Doubt’s.
Dr. Funkenberry — So is this a marketing ploy by The Forum? The forum posted on it’s Facebook Fan Page yesterday that Gwen Stefani of No Doubt will be performing with Prince Friday or Saturday night. Well, Friday passed and..no Gwen. So that would mean….tonight, right?
Tonight will be the 7th night of Prince’s record-breaking 21 Nights In Los Angeles run at the Forum.
What we can tell you is that Gwen rehearsed with Prince and the NPG at the Forum almost 2 weeks ago for several hours, so it is supposed to go down and was planned.
An unreliable blogger who shall go nameless reported that Prince and Gwen were performing that night when actually it was just a rehearsal.
We have a feeling it will NOT be the Prince and No Doubt songs in existence but actually one of Gwen’s all time favorite songs by the Purple One..and perhaps a few more guest spots.
So far, Prince has had Ledisi, Mint Condition, Larry Graham, Chaka Khan, Sheila E., and Alicia Keys take part as his special guests either as an opening act or a surprise performer.
I am not going to lie, I would LOVE to see Prince and Gwen perform. Will it happen?
Follow us on Twitter tonight as we will be LIVE tweeting from show n will let you know if Gwen plays: Twitter.com/Drfunkenberry -Dr.FB
UPDATE 6:45 PM
Erin and Mieke hinted on Twitter that they were also attending the show. We are assuming the whole band would be there, including Gavin.

What an honor for Gwen and we wish her the best of luck! We are so curious as to what will be happening! Please let us know if you’re planning on heading to the show and we would love to see any photos, videos or stories you have from the night so we can share with everyone! Thank you in advance and we’re jealous of all the lucky fans who get this special opportunity to see Gwen with Prince!
We are told that the show will be around three hours long and is scheduled to start at 9:00 PM. The New Power Generation will be opening the show (they are also Prince’s backup band).
