Gold Experience /Ultimate Live Experience stage

I know this sounds a bit silly and YES I have tried Google image search and YES I could scan the booklet picture but....does anybody have a picture of the Gold Experience/Ultimate Live Experience tour stage ? Maybe some other pics than the single one in the booklet (though the one in the booklet would suffice, too).

I don´t have the booklet with me right now and need the pictures...it´s a complicated story. Besides, even though I´ve been to several of those shows , I only have vague memories of the stage set up, besides...by the time I got to see that show he had already left half of the stage in England due to logistic problems.

Thanks in advance.

(Believe me I´ve tried Google image search but to no avail).

.

Also...for those who´ve seen that stage and those shows....how do you like it in hindsight? How does it compare to other stage props that Prince used?

I liked it a lot, especially the conveyor belt thingy even though it was , at times, a nightmare soundwise. I liked the look, that giant womb in the middle and that penis thing...

As far as I remember, some guys who had previously worked for Barbara Streisand co-designed that stage.

It´s not as great and sophisticated as the Lovesexy stage, and that probably wasn´t even what he was going for, but still one of those great stage set ups in Prince history. I also liked the whole vibe and feel of that era, the huge cushions, the color schemes, the clothes and that he changed the colors of the Stars and Stripes, and of course Morris´ plexiglass organ and weird looking cap that was also the cap of the Get Wild perfume.

Good times.

Sorry, I don't have a scan, but you can also find a huge picture of it in the Gold Experience tourbook. It folds out to 4 pages.

I don't think that is the set meant

The Ultimate Experience at Wembley arena was my first time seeing Prince live and I have been hooked ever since

The conveyor belt in the stage was REALLY effective

From memory Sonny T was perched high up in the set

I have the video and audio boot and it is a great show

You're talking about the Endorphine Machime Stage. I saw it dissambled behind Paisley in 95 on huge shelf/racks

If you look closely the stage is a penis and Vag, the vag part had a dressing room and a soundboard, Prince could do his own sound from the stage.

I saw the stage at Manchester in 95. It was only near the end of the show my friend realised it was a giant cock and 'lady parts' shall we say. His very own Endorphinmachine.

.

You can see some clear close up footage of it on the BBC's Sunday Show when he performs Billy Jack Bitch on the stage. And is also interviewed with the NPG by Veronica Webb, albiet with a scarf on his face and does not speak, inside the set.

.

I have the tourbook and could scan and email you the fold out photos if need be.

He had part of it in the soundstage when I visted Paisley back in 95 as well. I was there when they filmed the Rock n Roll's Alive video. Unforgettable experince.

We're gonna need a bigger boat

Thanks a lot !

I wonder why that picture, or any other picture of that tour´s stage set-up, is so hard to find. I ´ve tried so many different keywords on Google.
