Last song you saw Prince play live

What is the last song you saw Prince play live in person? When and where was it?

Technically mine was Chopsticks at Paisley Park, April 17, 2016. Otherwise, it was Free Urself at Paisley Park, January 21st, 2016.

"What's My Name" in Antwerp 2014. Going with a bang one might say.

The strange thing is that my Wife ended with the line: "This just could have been the last time we saw him live." And my friend said the same thing when we went to a show together some time before that one. And right they were.....
Produced, Arranged, Composed & Performed by PRINCE

That was 5 years ago in the Melkweg, Amsterdam. From the top of my head, he closed with Controversy- Play That Funky Music.

Camden, June 2014. I thought off the top of my head it was The Max, but I've just checked and it was followed by She's Always In My Hair.

That was the early show at the Roundhouse right? If so then I guess that was my last song as well.

It was "Little Red Corvette" after the 1 hour pause (maybe it was less than that) with the lights going up and most people leaving because that's what you do when the house lights go on and poeple start cleaning the stage. Chicago 2012

We took a chance and stayed and wandered down to a few rows away from his piano. It paid off! He sang most of the song standing and lying on the piano.

There was also a Prince imposter walking around shaking hands in the distance when the lights went up that was confusing people. He had on shades. And a normal suit, so it was fairly obvious it couldn't really be Prince.

The last time I saw Prince live was at the Autism Rocks show in London, last year. 2/2/2015.

Final song of that show was Cool / DSTYGE.

Purple Rain - Piano and a Mic Tour, 2nd show Sydney Opera House Feb 20, 2016

Spectacular show - so upbeat and energetic, hard to stomach that 2 months later he'd be gone!

Ha! For someone who's on the Org all the time, your last show was the Lovesexy tour? Did you decide there was no way it would be topped?
