I wonder why Prince didn't play South America. I am assuming he had some following there. So many different acts toured the region.


The concert footage in Brazil shows him constantly running back and forth on a gigantic stage. Looked tiring, even for young Prince.



I knew he played Rio. I am talking about him playing South America continuously throughout his career.

Did an Excel exercise on data from princevault.com regarding tour dates/concerts outside the US.

Awesome! Did you do one for aftershows/one-off performances as well (outside Paisley Park)? Cuz that wouyld be real interesting to see; where did he feel good enough after a regular money making show to shine some more?

I would suggest London/UK, certainly in the latter part of his career. 21 Nights at the O2 in 2007, HitnRun I (and II) in 2014, the planned opening of Piano & a Microphone in 2015.

But it's all speculation.

The first show of the Piano & A Microphone would have been in Vienna, Austria

With a very special thank you to Tina: Is hammer already absolute, how much some people verändern...ICH hope is never so I will be! And if, then I hope that I would then have wen in my environment who joins me in the A....

Prince had a very special relationship with the Netherlands. He did many small and unusual shows there. He worked with Candy Dulfer and other Dutch musicians.

When he wanted to do a video/tv recording of the Lovesexy show and couldn't get a stadium in the Netherlands, he went to Dusseldorf just across the German border and then sold the tickets in the Netherlands to get a Dutch audience.

Apparently the Netherlands reminded him of Minneapolis, culturally - like Canada/Ontario.
