Tonight you can attend a pop royalty face-off at The Howard Theater, as fans show their loyalty to M.J. and "The Purple One." The Prince and Michael Jackson Experience starts at 11 p.m., when DJ Dave Paul of San Francisco will spin hits, rare tracks, remixes and more songs by both legendary musicians.
