(Not) Small Club photo by Frank Griffin

There was a black and white one drifting around, but unverified from The Hague after show (from a very famous bootleg Small Club aka Trojan Horse). A color photo showed up recently on Housequake's FB page:


Edit from HouseQuake FB (link above still valid): UPDATE: This is probably NOT a photo from Paard van Troje although it was mentioned in the original caption. After some further research with the guys from https://www.facebook.com/Princevault we found out these photos were taken during a rehearsal at John Henry Studios in London. (see screenshot we posted in the replies). Maybe in thirty years we will find a real one.

Still a great photo from that period.

Great find! Finally some verified image of one of his greatest concerts IMO.

There are quite some pictures from the Lovesexy tour on Getty Images from Bauer-Griffin, even some more of the rehearsals in De Kuip Stadium in Rotterdam made the same day (also posted on HQ FB's page).

Hopefully there is more than only this one.

This is the tag of the pic:

ROTTERDAM, NETHERLANDS - AUGUST 19: Prince plays in a local club, Het Paard van Troje in Rotterdam during the Lovesexy tour on August 19, 1988 in Rotterdam, Netherlands. (Photo by FG/Bauer-Griffin/Getty Images)


Edit: Hmmm, according to an update made by HQ this is not correct after all:

I think I have a photo from the gig (I've got loads stuffed away somewhere in my Mums loft), but from memory, its one where you can just see the top of his head. I was at the very back and had a terrible view.
