The mighty performance by Prince and his band the Revolution in 1985 in New York’s Carrier Dome—the March 30…it really made many hearts skip a beat. What an energy and experience there was in those days on stage. It was that good that Grammy-nominated recording engineer Chris James reconstructed entirely the original video and audio source material. The quality is sublime now.
The first preview track that has been released is the show opener Let’s Go Crazy. Check out the video below. On June 3rd 2022 the limited run Collector’s Edition will be available.
It is a big box set full of LPs, CD, Blue-ray video and an expansive 44-page book complete with never-before-seen photos of the Purple Rain Tour. But wait, there is more. What? Yes!
New liner notes highlighting stories and memories from all five members of The Revolution, and a 24 x 36 poster.
“The Collector’s Edition was designed by Grammy-nominated artist Mathieu Bitton and Grammy-nominated creative director and Prince associate Trevor Guy” as you can read on Prince’s official webshop.
Fans can’t wait for the box set, that’s a clear thing:
“I attended 4 of the Purple Rain tour shows in 1985 and they all we’re simply Amazing. I can not wait to watch this show on my 11.2 .4 surround sound system and shake my house. We are definitely going to be doing some Housequaking.”
Check out again this master performance by Prince and The Revolution with Let’s Go Crazy. The video shows the band live in Syracuse on March 30, 1985. Do these images ring a bell with you again?
Let’s Go Crazy is the second single from his 1984 sixth studio album Purple Rain. On July 18 of that year, the song was released on single in the United States and Canada. In early 1985, the song was released on single in Europe, Australia and New Zealand.
…that Prince is one of the core artists of 80s ALIVE? Besides U2, Madonna, ZZ Top, Duran Duran, Queen and many others. Chances are BIG that you’ll hear Prince’s Pop & Rock Hits when you tune in. So check out our livestream.
