I love the Montreaux shows! Some of his best stuff. But i actually prefer the 2009 (or is it 2007? Its late lol) shows by a hair. I do agree tho that this particular song/performance you mention is pretty much everything ๐Ÿ˜

Personally I thought it was way too fast. He was out of breath trying to keep up. I love the fact he dusted it off, but the 95 live arrangement was superior.

Totally agree.
I was lucky enough to see him do a similar set in Feb 14 in Manchester. To be 10 feet away from the likes of Endorphinmachine, Bambi, Colonized Mind etc will stay with me forever.
.
After a few years of mainly tired greatest hits tours he seemed rejuvenated with these 3EG shows. A lot more new material being played and even the older tracks sounded fresher

I couldn't agree more with that last paragraph. Spot on!

The third night Montreux performance with 3RDEYEGIRL is solid, but they and Prince were far superior on the 2014 HitNRun gigs in London.

The greatest gigs with 3RDEYEGIRL have yet to be released. Shepherd's Bush was the best gig I've seen by any artist and I'd already seen Prince about twenty times prior to that date.

I enjoyed the Montreux performance, but found the mood and energy to be slightly off, particularly on night three. Prince seemed much happier, healthier and energetic in 2014 and the band more grooved in, allowing Prince greater scope to solo and improvise.

Iโ€™ve seen partial video of the UK shows. Manchester a real highlight. Band was somewhat still new in 2013, 2014 was when they really hit their groove. I think I have some Shepherdโ€™s Bush video that I got off YouTube before it was taken down. The guitar playing he does on Mars blows me away and thatโ€™s not even one of my favorites. But it was just so good and so rock and roll. Itโ€™s like the version of Guitar at Dakota Jazz. Or I Like It There in Portland. These are the kind of performances I wish more people could see. Prince could rock as hard as anybody and the fact that it came while he was fronting a female band makes it all the better.

I love it. But then I also loved the sped up version of Alphabet Street at North Sea Jazz in 2011.

Only change I would have made to the set list is swap out Play That Funky Music with I Like It There. Otherwise amazing show.
