Fantasy Tour Setlist

Fellow Fans, imagine this... How would YOU construct the ULTIMATE PRINCE TOUR AND SERTLIST???

Here is mine:

The TIME open the show and play:

1) Get It Up

2) 777-9311

3) Cool

4) The Bird

5) Jungle Love

Then the stage goes dark...

Then...a lone purple light illuminating a purple piano...a lone figure emerges from the back of the stage...small and slight, the figure cross the stage in virtual darkness and takes his place at the piano...then as the crows still engulfs the arena in SCREAMS...the figure starts to play...

1) Little Red Corvette

2) Controvery

3) Dirty Mind

4) Do Me, Baby

5) I Wanna Be Your Lover

6) The Beautiful Ones

Then...the stage again goes dark...more figures come out out...then a LOUD AND DEEP VOICE BOOMS out across the stadium: "Don't worry...I won't hurt you...I only want you to have some fun...

Then THE LIGHTS come on and we see Prince and the Revolution on stage...they LAUNCH into...

7) Let's Work

8) D.M.S.R.

9) 1999

10) When You Were Mine

11) Let's Go Crazy

12) 17 Days

13) Raspberry Beret

14) Kiss

Then the band leaves the stage...and only Prince, Wendy, and Lisa emerge. Prince and Wendy with acoustic guitars, Lisa behind the purple piano..

15) Sometime It Snows In April

16) For The Tears In Your Eyes

17) I Love U But I Don't Trust U Anymore

18) Nothin Compares 2 U

19) Purple Rain

Then ENCORE...EVERYONE comes out, including Sheila E and Eric Leeds and The Horn Headz...

20) Mountains

21) The Glamorous Life

22) Baby I'm A Star

23) I Would Die 4 U

Ooohhkaayyy... There was a time when I had sleepless nights and I used to do this: make up imaginary set lists for imaginary concerts... Thankfully, those days (nights) are over, but... Let's play along here... If you have The Time as an opening act, they just have to do Gigolos Get Lonely Too.
As for the hypothetical Prince concert, I don't think you should have two ballads with an uptempo song in between (tracks 4-6 in your list.) Also, I Would Die 4 U isn't the best song to end with; better to have an all star jam on Raspberry Beter/Cool and A Love Bizarre.

I have a couple I’ll post, here’s my first:

The Love 2 America tour

This tour would happen under the assumption that Prince had lived. The set would be centered around the tumultuos socio-political climate of the day.

Band would be the NPG (ideally, with a healthy John Blackwell and Rhonda back in the fold. Wendy & Lisa and Sheila E. will pop up on occasion. No Shelby or Liv.)

1. The Future (with Partyup coda)
2. America
3. 1999
4. Act of God
5. Controversy
6. Baltimore
7. Days of Wild

— acoustic set -

8. 4 the Tears in Your Eyes
9. Welcome 2 the Dawn
10. 7 (starts off solo, then full band kicks in)

11. Money Don’t Matter 2 Nite
12. Dreamer
13. Annie Christian (in a similar arrangement to the 2013 performances of Something in the Water)
14. Crystal Ball

— intermission -

15. Let’s Go Crazy
16. Take Me with U
17. Raspberry Beret
18. Cream
19. Cool
20. Let’s Work
21. U Got the Look
22. Love, Thy Will Be Done
23. The Cross

— Encore 1 -

24. Purple Rain
25. Sign o’ the Times
26. Thieves in the Temple
27. When Doves Cry
28. I Would Die 4 U
29. Baby, I’m a Star

- Encore 2 -

30. Kiss
31. Little Red Corvette

— Encore 3 -

32. The Bird
33. Jungle Love
34. A Love Bizarre

- Encore 4 -

35. The Love We Make
36. Mountains

On some dates he’d add in Uptown and/or Still Would Stand All Time

No medleys, sampler set, only doing one verse, etc.

Wendy rises up from the stage to play the guitar intro from Purple Rain for 10 minutes, until Prince walks up, sits at the piano and sings Purple and Gold.

Prince then walks off stage and doesn't return.

Tickets A Reserve: $420
Tickets B Reserve: $380
Tickets C Reserve: $120

Always cry 4 love, never cry 4 pain.

In 1997/98 Chris Rock asked 0+> what would be his dream band, he said Wendy & Lisa ... Sheila and couldn't finish.
So maybe he did actually go back and think about it because,
in 'The One' video his hidden messages say: Wendy Lisa Sheila Susannah Cat Rhonda Marva

.

So it would be cool to put together a set list for this group.

.

0+> (guitar)

Lisa Coleman (piano/keyboard)

Sheila E (drums)

Wendy Melvoin (guitar)

Rhonda (bass)

Susannah Melvoin (backing vocals)
Cat (backing vocals/dancer)

Marva (backing vocals)
