He went to an afterparty and played for two hours? Oh.

I see how it is.

It's a shame - had I not know we got an unusually short show, I would have been satisfied.

As long as he at least played When Doves Cry, it was a success.

Yeah, as a first-timer, I certainly didn't mind hearing all the hits. The setlist was fine by me.

Although I did agree with the reviewer about the tease of some songs. The Darling Nikki one didn't bother me - I loved hearing those opening bars blaring out of the speakers, but the unnecessary 20 seconds of The Most Beautiful Girl In the World was stupid. (But I have to say, I'm glad we didn't get the whole thing, because I hate that song.)

This is fascinating and amazing!
The original live recording of Purple Rain, as it appeared on the album in edited form.

I don't know how Prince finds the time to record 7362596459486 songs a year, troll the internet, and nail everyone in the world at all times.

Parade is such a weird album. It's more psychedelic and bizarre than Around The World In A Day, and it doesn't even have to play it up like that album does. Really remarkable stuff, even if it's a bit lacking in hits.

I know Around The World takes a lot of shit, but The Ladder is pantheon Prince, Condtion of the Heart one of his most underrated, beautiful tracks, and as you said, the hits are solid. Always loved Pop Life in particular. I enjoy this more than Lovesexy and Parade overall.

But yeah, Parade still impresses, and I think has a lot of support from hardcore Prince fans. How fucking gorgeous is Sometimes It Snows In April?

And don't forget going door to door spreading the message.

My theory is that there is more than one, just like the one time Princess Padmé Amidala had a double, Prince too has to have at least one.

I updated my blog (it's in my sig) with a full review but I'll just say that the show was absolutely spectacular and I'm so glad I went. Wish I'd only paid $30, like the rest of you, but it was worth every cent anyway. For a 53yo dwarf he's an incredible performer. I was standing from the very start (how the fuck can you stay seated at a Prince gig?!) and loved every second, from the funk-ified jams and covers to his bigger songs. Purple Rain was fucking magic, every bit as emotional as I hoped, loved singing the oooh ooh ooh refrain, though I wished it had gone for 40 minutes I felt a little shortchanged

Flavour Flav and Chuck D joined him on a stage, as did a young girl (like 9, 10) who Prince left on her own on the symbol to dance for like five minutes and then a middle-aged dude who had been dancing up a storm just off-stage. Here's the set he played.

Controversy
Sexy Dancer / Le Freak
(Theme Song From) "Which Way Is Up?"
Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)
Play That Funky Music / 911 Is A Joke
Let's Go Crazy
Delirious
Let's Go Crazy (reprise)
1999
Little Red Corvette (did this bit after it, "slowww down" with handclaps and deep red lights, was awesome, anyone know the song? or is it part of Red Corvette live?)
I Could Never Take The Place of Your Man
Nothing Compares 2 U
Take Me With U
Raspberry Beret
Cream
Cool / Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough

Make You Feel My Love
Purple Rain

Medley:
When Doves Cry
Nasty Girl
Sign o' the Times
Hot Thing
Darling Nikki
Pop Life
A Love Bizarre

I Would Die 4 U
Kiss

Mountains
The Dance Electric

Love... Thy Will Be Done
Days Of Wild

Only other bummers were 10-15 minute waits between the penultimate and final encore, and then again after Days of Wild, before house lights came on and roadies started dismantling. Poor form, but otherwise, awesome stuff

Nice. Sounds like an awesome show.

The long break ... that must be when he sits backstage and decides whether the city is worthy of another few songs, as he did the same thing in Tacoma.

Although we were not worthy of jack shit, apparently. YOU PURPLE BASTARD.

Glad you got a longer show!

Congrats on hearing I Could Never Take... which is arguably his finest hour. Also, judging by the live version of Days Of Wild found on Crystal Ball, that must have been pretty fucking sweet.

So weird that he covered the Dylan song, which is one of his weakest from the late 90's renaissance onward.

Days of Wild was awesome, but by that stage I was beyond tired and we'd been cheering for him to come back out for almost 15 minutes.
