Seeing Prince live has sat around in my Things To Do In Life list for years and years, and I finally caught up with the wee scoundrel at the Millenium Dome in London last Thursday with Phil. That boy knows how to entertain, I can tell you, and played a frenetic 36-song set that included many of the classics… and one song with Elton!
It was quite funny sitting in the new arena looking at the aged rocker belt out the song, and look back at the slightly tragic celebrities in Taiwan that I occasionally encounter and think … ‘what’s so different?’
Purple Rain, in a shot stolen on my camphone (people were being chucked out for taking photos!) … to be fair though, the guy is giving away the album for free, so it is hardly surprising that he is being paranoid about the in-show copyright.
The encore after the encore, after the lights came up… quite a treat, but we did miss out on the aftershow, where he played some vintage Led-Zep… denied!
