Your weekend just got a lot more funky: Prince and the Revolution: Live, the famed 1985 concert film capturing Prince's iconic "Purple Rain Tour", will stream for free on YouTube this weekend.
Beginning Thursday, May 14th at 8:00 p.m. EDT, it will stream on Prince’s YouTube channel for 72 hours (tune in below). Bobby Z. will participate in a pre-show Q&A with fans beginning at 7:00 p.m. EDT.
Proceeds from the livestream will support the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization. Viewers will have the option to donate, with Google matching each donation up to $5M million.
To coincide with the live stream, the audio from the concert has been remastered by longtime Prince mastering engineer Bernie Grundman, and will be available officially in digital format for the first time beginning Friday, May 15th.
I bought this on VHS many, many moons ago.
Brilliant gig - totally worth watching if you are a fan.
