Get ready to party like it’s 1985
The Prince Estate have announced a new live album ‘Prince and the Revolution: Live’, with the featured concert set to be broadcast across three days on YouTube.
The show, which was recorded at the Carrier Dome in Syracuse, NY on March 30, 1985, was the first live concert footage that Prince officially released as both a television broadcast and home video. The YouTube stream will start this Thursday (May 14).
The performance features members of Prince’s band The Revolution, including drummer Bobby Z, guitarist Wendy Melvoin, keyboardists Lisa Coleman and Matt Fink and others. Bobby Z will participate in a Q&A session one hour prior to the premiere.
The concert was originally released in 1985 on VHS and LaserDisc, followed by a DVD release included with the 2017 ‘Purple Rain’ Remastered & Deluxe Edition.
Viewer donations will go directly toward the World Health Organisation’s coronavirus Solidarity Response Fund. Google will match donations up to $5 million.
