All of them, frankly. I always thought that a site (like Bruce Springsteen's) should have been set up with all of the P&A concerts, following his death.

I love the early concert at the Paisley Park gala on January 21, 2016. Prince contexualized his own upbringing by juxtaposing the assasination of John F. Kennedy and the media attention that Lee Harvey Oswald with the dissolution of his parents marriage in the '60s. Also, it was fascinating to hear Prince namecheck the radio disc jockeys and programmers of stations he listened to as a kid. He mentioned Jack Harris and how he had a band as tight as James Brown. I think the buying public at large would gravitate to such an introspective side of Prince.

If I was picking, it would be thefirst two Melbourne concerts. Otherwise, I would respect Prince's wishes and release the ones he had ready to go.

It has to be the final show.

He prepped it for release before his death and it's his swan song. There's no better way to honor him.

Totally agree!

.

Prince already said this was the next release so the estate should respect his wishes.

.

Forget the Vault, forget deluxe edition.... release what Prince wanted and then move on to other releases after.

The Oakland Coliseum show was really, really good, and the setlist was divine.

Both Auckland Shows. Great selection of songs, happy and appreciative audience and me in the audience screaming my head off in show 2 about Adore being sung.

.

Plus Prince sounded great that night.

DVD has to be the first two shows at Paisley. Seeing that show is part of the special experience. An audio CD has to be the last two shows in Atlanta. Too sad to have a DVD of that show. That show should only be heard.

It absolutely 100% has to be the first one at Paisley Park. It is utterly unique in Prince's career.

I will stress that the release must be complete. The two concerts were one show with an intermission. Both would have to be released. This release would be for hard core fans. I don't see the masses buying it so it needs to be a nice box set that we would all buy. If they reissued the tour program that would be great. I would pay over $100 for the box set of a dvd of the two Paisley shows and CD of the Atlanta shows along with the program.

I don't expect anything new for years after the Putple Rain reissue. I'm not sure anything will be a hit commercially...they've waited too long. I'm also not sure the stuff we want will be released in our lifetimes.

Was it one ticket so everyone who attended the first one could attend the second one?

No. When he did two shows it was always two separate tickets, but both shows were always very different. The two Paisley shows were very different. He told us his life story in the first show. Contrary to popular belief, that story didn't end in 1988. It ended with April 21, 2016. It was even deeper than people thought at the time. He showed us his immense talent and had fun with us for the second show.

This - agreed.

Even "if" one of the previous shows had slightly better versions (I don't know, just saying), the fact that this was his last-ever public performance is the selling point.

And, from what I have read here on the Org, he was amazing.

Right, so the two concerts were two shows. It was not an intermission.

Since we're talking live albums, I'd have to say the 2nd Atlanta show. That was Prince's plan. He let us hear the first 30 minutes of it at the last Paisley Park party on 4/16/16. He was sitting on the steps in the Love 4 One Another/NPGMC room listening to it with us.

On the DVD side, were any other shows filmed besides at Paisley Park?

What did it sound like?? Crystal clear?

In my mind I want it to be as crystal clear as
the One Night Alone solo piano portion...

Yes, it was crystal clear. He did say that they were working on it and wanted to clean up the audience screaming. We got to hear up to the song Dark. I heard Indifference on a bootleg and I loved what he did with that song on piano. There are some better set lists out there, but like I said, it was what he wanted.
