Prince 3/31/22

Making its vinyl, CD and Blu-ray debut on June 3rd is Prince & The Revolution: Live. The legendary concert, filmed at the height of Prince’s mid-’80s fame during his Purple Rain tour, was captured on March 30th, 1985 at Syracuse, New York’s Carrier Dome. The concert was a major video hit when issued on VHS back in 1986.

A collector’s edition is available featuring three 150-gram LP’s on purple, red and gold vinyl, two CD’s, a Blu-ray video, a 44-page photo book, as well as new liner notes, and a poster.

Prince & The Revolution’s tour behind Purple Rain ran for 98 shows across North America between November 4th, 1984 and April 7th, 1985, selling over 1.7 million tickets.

Prince once explained that music should mirror every emotion — but ultimately, always do so with positivity: [“I think it should uplift (laughs). There’s enough things that bring you down — we don’t need to jack up out music that way, too. There’s still a way to get anger and even hatred across sometimes in music. But, you have to resolve it. You have to show that it’s useless to uphold these ideas.”] SOUNDCUE (:14 OC: . . . uphold these ideas)
