.

The Estate (whatever that may be) resides mostly outside of that buidling on 7801 Audubon Rd.

Or you could say and remember: 'Paisley Park is in your Heart'.

Pills and thrills and daffodils will kill... If you don't believe me or don't get it, I don't have time to try to convince you, sorry.

How many new songs did he present during these shows?

These shows may be seen as a celebration of his career, sure.

OTOH, though, we see a musician do something that he could also do after his second album save for the lower amount of songs created at that time.

Is managing, rehearsing, conducting a band (bass, drums, guitar, keyboards? bigger?) that easy?

I think Prince had to work very hard to create those shows where he could hold the audience for an entire show with just him and a piano (and microphone). I'm not sure at what point in his career he would have been ready for that. Especially the introspective stuff.

I want to see the 2011 North Sea Jazz performances. He was in rare form! His guitar solos of The Love We Make just make me drool drool. Good grief, he's a guitar god! guitar

He blew me away because it was all him...no background singers screaming over him during the choruses of songs, no over-reliance on the same versions of the same songs, wonderful singing, pulling out obscure songs and obscure covers right next to his biggest hits...nice transitions between songs creating cool and touching medleys The fact that he was able to do so much with just his voice and a piano while going through the bleak daily existance of drug addiction and pain...its a testament to the power of music (both its power to inspire and to destroy.) Very important concert in my opinion. I wouldn't do the Atlanta show...I would pick the best moments of the tour and do a compilation because he changed up the set list..each night.. I listened to the entirety of the first Atlanta show..it was quite good though a bit short compared to previous nights. I didn't listen to the final one (might struggle with that one) but the various clips I have been able to find of the other nights were even better. My favorite other moments were Black Muse (which was touching and slower)) and his medley of Heroes with Dolphin (totally in love with how he connected rhese two songs about indviduality and containing dolphin references...and made both of them feel a tad sad.) His re-interpretations of his own music and other's is much more satisfying to me than hearing another by the book Purple Rain with Shelby and the girls and the band.

Here is what Prince did on just one days performances...and he changed it up every location...

February 26th Australia. He even did "Girl"...when is the last time he did that song.

Early Show

  1. "Confluence" (instrumental intro)
  2. "Big City"
  3. "Ruff Enuff"
  4. "Little Red Corvette" / "Dirty Mind"
  5. "A Place in Heaven" (instrumental)
  6. "Money Don't Matter 2 Night"
  7. "Waiting in Vain" / "If I Was Your Girlfriend"
  8. "How Come U Don't Call Me Anymore?"
  9. "The Ladder"
  10. "1000 X's & O's"
  11. "When She Comes"
  12. "Satisfied"
  13. "I Love U in Me"
  14. "Sometimes It Snows in April" (includes "Purple Rain" instrumental elements)
  15. "Automatic"
  16. "The Beautiful Ones"

Encore

  1. "Raspberry Beret"
  2. "Starfish and Coffee"
  3. "Paisley Park"
  4. "Adore"

Late Show

  1. "Confluence" (instrumental intro)
  2. "The Love We Make"
  3. "Over the Rainbow"
  4. "Batman Theme"
  5. "Big City"
  6. "Ruff Enuff"
  7. "Little Red Corvette" / "Dirty Mind" (includes "With You" instrumental)
  8. "The Ballad of Dorothy Parker" (includes "Four")
  9. "The Max"
  10. "I Wanna Be Your Lover"
  11. "Do Me, Baby"
  12. "Sweet Thing"
  13. "How Come U Don't Call Me Anymore"
  14. "Waiting in Vain" / "If I Was Your Girlfriend"
  15. "The Ladder"
  16. "The Beautiful Ones"
  17. "1000 X's & O's"
  18. "Black Muse"
  19. "Raspberry Beret"

Encore

  1. "Starfish and Coffee"
  2. "Paisley Park"
  3. "Purple Rain"

And no its not easy to conduct a band. but PRince was an expert at it and occassionally seemed a bit bored with the expected songs. During this tour, even while doing the standards, he seemed rejuvenated...maybe because music was giving him some relief. Eventually it sounds like he got bored again..(apparently, he wasn't quite up to the second night in Altanta.) Through a lot of that concert he seemed inspired..the comedown from those performances must have been tough though.

Never liked medleys.

Never liked intimate concert performance in huge venues.

-

But If Prince should've done a Piano & Microphone tour in smaler venues, the intimacy would be more intense and better imho.

And I read here i'm not the only one who didn't 'feel' the Piano&M tour.

I have 'm, listened to them, it's not my preferable 'Prince thing', although there were wonrderful parts in it. Probably the reason why I don't like it is becvause of the terribl esound of bootlegs, and, the

sort of 'electric' reinforced sound of Prince's grand-piano.

Big crowds cheering for intimate performances, weird.

Something just does not compute (4 me).

They should release a main concert followed by an aftershow from each tour where one exists both audio & video. They could call it the Before & After(show) - Prince Live

I would kill to see any of the house of blues aftershows, the sound in those venues are superb.

Prince at his peak in 2014? While that was a fun tour I'd have to say musicianship wise the ONA tour blows it out of the water, all you have to do is compare bands & it's not even close. Then there was those amazing aftershows..


I suppose. But the aftershows I saw were WAY better than the ONA main show.

For me the peak was the Musicology tour. He did everything.

Mixed in hits, some obscure, some not. A nice selection of new stuff. Mixed up the set list for a change. The ACOUSTIC SET!! The band was tight as shit. John Blackwell. No medleys and no half hour ballad sets...The theatricality was stripped down. Not a bad seat in the house. His mindset seemed just right. Everything just clicked.

If I'm being selfish, I want the aftershow shit because, of all the times I saw him, that's where the sparks really flew and that little motherfucker just jammed and burnt down the fucking stage. He and his band were organic and true in a way that his main shows never quite managed - his raw, dripping talent just bubbling up to the surface. I remember my first one...2001 after a Hit and Run show and I was 10 feet away just WATCHING this man play. I could see his fingers and see him cue the band...on point like it was easy.

Pure art. That's what I want.

An Aftershow compilation.

It's beyond time Montreux 2009 gets a deluxe release of both shows. And Coachella '08.

Exactly. It was stripped and intimate and forced Prince to rely on his own musical abilities.


The problem is, they're gonna have to put a good noise gate on his mike and fake the crowd noises.
I mean, the number of morons who shout "Purple Rain!"' in the middle of SISIA, or start to clap their hands without a reason...
It ruins it for us, and you can tell it ruined it for him. I sense he expected more spiritual bonding out of his P&M performances.

I don't mean to start contintental wars here, but a parisian crowd would have stayed silent.
Europeans know what silence looks like.

He also did play a wide array of his songs from his whole career, not just the hits or just the 80s. I think the P & M shows were outstanding!
