SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Participating in contests and games will be the best bet if you want an evening of fun. Flirtations could be misunderstood, so stick to good clean fun. Show off your prowess on the dance floor. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Remember there’s safety in numbers. Singles can mingle, but it’s better to hang out with trusted companions than to seek new partners. Social animals prefer competitive sports or physical exertion, such as dancing. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Deal with necessities, but set time aside for fun, as well. Caution is good, but a spark of interest from someone new could be worth pursuing. If you’re currently attached, a candlelight dinner could re-ignite romantic fires.

The organizers were left bewildered and panicked, having just three weeks to rearrange an event that had been three years in the making. Hundreds of hotel rooms and 6,000 plane tickets had to be canceled and rebooked, and a new venue secured. And even now, concern remains that Muslim extremists may try to disrupt the event. The British, Australian and U.S. embassies have issued warnings to citizens planning trips to Bali during the competition, saying there could be large-scale protests or even attacks.

Prince even tossed in a cover of the Ray Charles favorite “Unchain My Heart,” which I like to think was a tip of the hat to its songwriter, Bobby Sharp, who lived in nearby Alameda. Prince seemed in great spirits, interacting with the fans like they were old, familiar friends. He was talkative, cheerful and playful, whether he was quoting hip-hop hero Kendrick Lamar or saying nice stuff about Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry. The one knock on this show — and it’s a big one — was that the colorful, kaleidoscopic imagery projected onto the huge screen in back of the stage was tough on the eyes — and stomach. It was a cool, nearly hypnotic effect for the first five minutes or so, but it stayed well past its welcome. It ended up being distracting and dizzying, leading to some complaints of nausea.
