First saw Prince perform in Knoxville, Tn at the Bolling Thompson Arena during the Musicology Tour. WHAT A SHOW!!! We stood and danced and sang the entire time! My sister-n-law and I wanted desperately to go to the After Show, but she had to work the next day and it was a 2 hr. drive home. The next trip we took we flew to San Diego. Another wonderful performance and we seldom sat down then either, only for the slow love songs! We still sang along and got to meet so many great people who loved Prince (almost) as much as we do! I had a beautiful large purple boa I wanted to give to him when they were inviting people onstage. My sister-n-law wouldn't go with me and I was too shy to go on my own. Now I wish I had! He is the most God gifted performer I know and really knows how to interact with the crowd!! And I do mean all the crowd from grannies to teens!!! He never slowed down singing,dancing and had us laughing for over two hours.

This was a great show for long-term Prince fans. Not the "Raspberry Berret only" fans. He went deep into his back catalog and brought out gems--including some rare B sides (like She's Always in My Hair" that one rarely ever gets a chance to see. Plus, as an extra special treat, he added another musician on a Hammond B3 adding gospel-style fills thast turned some Prince classics into an extra special treat. And it's great that he doesn't end on Purple Rain and the encores were phenomenal. The only rub was that some key guitar licks were a little distorted. But, all in all, if you're a true fan, you should see this tour!

Prince ruled the music scene in the 1980s with his amalgam musical sound incorporating rock, pop and R&B with a side of funk. Though he released his first album “For You” in 1978, Prince’s presence on the scene didn’t become mainstream until the release of “Dirty Mind” in 1980. Prince’s foray into all things entertainment started with his crossover to the silver screen in the 1984 story of his life musical-film “Purple Rain.” The accompanying album of the same title featured some of Prince’s biggest hits including “When Doves Cry,” “I Would Die 4 U,” “Darling Nikki” and “Let’s Go Crazy.”
The release of “Dirty Mind” with its scandalous lyrics and in your face sexual overtones catapulted Prince into the public spotlight. Prince’s musical genius has seen him perform, collaborate and work with the likes of Madonna, Lenny Kravitz, Alicia Keys, Erykah Badu, Norah Jones, Beyoncé and a slew of other household names. Though “Purple Rain” is his most recognized record, Prince’s discography is distinctively diverse and tremendously plentiful with more recent releases incorporating a more substantive jazz influence.
Hearing Prince’s music is one thing … seeing it is an experience not to be missed. Prince live in concert is an amazing spectacle to witness. Fans post rave reviews of The Purple One’s concerts. Whether a hardcore Prince fan or a dabbler, you will appreciate the artistic touch that accompanies each and every one of his concerts.
