Prince on SNL Viewing Party


Come watch Prince’s Saturday Night Live performance at The Depot Tavern, which will have all of its screens tuned to NBC for the show. SNL begins at 10:30pm CT on Saturday, November 1 and this week’s host is Chris Rock. During SNL‘s 10:30pm-12am running time, Purple Rains (a Depot Tavern specialty drink) will be on special for just $6.00.

When Prince plays Saturday Night Live on Nov. 1, he will play one extra-long segment in the middle of the show. As you’re probably aware, most of the musical guests perform two separate songs on SNL, but Prince is not like most musical guests. Instead of two performances, he’ll provide the audience with eight full minutes of unadulterated, commercial-free Purple glory. Chris Rock will host the Nov. 1 episode, his first time hosting in 18 years. Prince has been back on SNL more recently — he played the show in 2006. For his jam session, he’ll be accompanied by his band 3rdeyegirl. [Billboard]
