SXSW might have saved the best for last.
After having DAVE GROHL give the keynote speech at SXSW last THURSDAY (NET NEWS 3/15), PRINCE and JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE put an exclaimination point on the AUSTIN festival.
PRINCE fronted a 22-piece band supporting him on classics such as "Purple Rain" at the club LA ZONA ROSA. Meanwhile, a few blocks away, JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE lit up an intimate stage at the COPPERTANK EVENTS CENTER.
If that weren't enough, JOHN FOGERTY played a set a bit earlier at AUSTIN CITY LIMITS LIVE'S MOODY THEATER.
Many of the 700 in attendance at TIMBERLAKE's show won tickets on MYSPACE, of which TIMBERLAKE is an investor.
