While waiting they're playing unreleased songs. So far I heard emotional pump and don't let em fool ya. Also am unreleased Jill Jones song. This orchestra concert comes from the estate so hopefully they will release these songs in the future. The quality of these songs are excellent and crystal clear quality.

I had a blast. After the concert they played Wally. I wonder how they got these unreleased songs? I guess the estate gave it to them.

I was there! Before the show started, I saw Craig Robinson from The Office and Hot Tub Time Machine. He did not look like he wanted to be bothered.

The music was solely focused on SOTT and earlier. In fact, Starfish and Coffee was the NEWEST song performed. I think you need to look at this show as a celebration of Prince’s most commercially successful era and not an education in Prince history.

During preshow, intermission, and post show, unreleased music is played, including

Girl O My Dreams (Prince version)
Mutiny (Prince version)
Go
Get On Up
Wally

Set list:

For You
Controversy
Something the Water
Computer Blue
Automatic
It Ain’t Over til the Fat Lady Sings
Christopher Tracy’s Parade
New Position
I Wonder U
Nothing Compares 2 U
Under the Cherry Moon
Venus de Milo
Alexa de Paris
The Beautiful Ones
All My Dreams
1999
Darling Nikki interlude

Intermission

Let’s Go Crazy
When Doves Cry
Little Red Corvette
Erotic City
Kiss
Starfish And Coffee
Take Me With U
Irresistible Bitch
Raspberry Beret
Purple Rain (played live with concert video and Prince vocals)
Baby I’m a Star encore

If you have a chance to attend, do it.

I enjoyed the show too!! Has the violin soloist been at all the other shows.
I don’t recall anyone mentioning her. There wasn’t a program so I didn’t know who she was. Computer blue was my favorite!!

Yes, the lack of a program and any Merck was disappointing. But, the performance was well done.

Ha, sorry - that’s an iPhone autocorrect of “merch,” as in “merchandise.”

I'm sure that is Questlove's copy of "Wally" that gets played after every show.

Yes she was excellent when I saw her in Brooklyn. I mentioned her in a post in the "Prince 4U Symphonic" post also in this concert section.
