Show Notes

  • Show started at 9:07
  • Prince performed with an 11 piece horn section
  • Prince played guitar on only a handful of tunes, and not Purple Rain
  • Sound and light problems were evident throughout the set
  • Roots drummer Questlove and comedian George Lopez were in the crowd and got shout-outs from stage
  • Sampler set was not full songs, sometimes just riffs or verses (about 10 songs in 10 minutes)
  • Between first and second encore, was over 30 minutes and a man was sweeping the stage the entire time
  • Prince never got to perform at aftershow at House Of Blues (!)
