Commemorating the 30th anniversary of PRINCE'S historic LOVESEXY tour performance held in Dortmund, Germany

30 years ago, on September 9th, 1988, the historic Lovesexy tour performance was held in Dortmund, Germany.

Here is a chronicle of it entitled "30 Years Ago, The Most Special Show I Ever Witnessed" published by A Pop Life:

Thanx Latin. As I opened this thread just now, I am listening to the live recording of this Sept 9 1988 Dortmund concert!! This concert is my go-to when I want to feel good, because Prince is so good! Say what u want about the Lovesexy album (personally it is in my top 5 ; ), but this concert imo is one of his best performances, ever. The true showman!

And then to think he did this every night. I understand why he later said: the Lovesexy tour was hard.
I may disagree with everything you say, but I will defend your right to say it.

So special. To me, this was the peak of his career. He was on top of his game.

There was a petition going around over here for a Lovesexy Anniversary billboard to be put up on the Westfalenhalle. I wonder if they really got it.

Thanks for the article, Latin yes

I'm like super pissed that the original, VHS release (both parts of the shows separate with opening and ending credits) isn't circulating digitally in either audio nor video.

.

We have what I believe to be the LD version that was released a bit later and from which the audio bootlegs must have been extracted, as well the original TV broadcast, both of which feature the whole show in a continuous sequence, but the original two-parter release seems to be lost forever, and my greatest fear is that when the Estate will finally rerelease it, they will totally ignore it in favor of the LD version.

.

Su-per-pissed sad

Someone must surely still have both tapes. I had to abandon my collection when I moved to Japan, but I know I would have never thrown them out.

Anyway, they are available on Amazon.uk if anyone feels like ordering and digitizing them.

Can somebody please point out the differences between the various versions? What is in the VHS version that is not in the Laserdisc version? And how is the original TV broadcast different? I have several digitized versions in my collection but cannot identify the source.

Thanx a lot!

Yeah I also got rid of my old cassettes when I sold my last VCR, knowing I'd never had another one. I'm sure someone could rip it, but no one bothered.

The TV broadcast is 02:02:01 while the LD is 01:51:01. I think the main difference is Cross The Line not being in its entirety in the LD, probably as well as some changes in the video edit favoring certain angles over others. The VHS release is probably the same as the LD release (Cross The Line being incomplete as well), but with opening and ending credits added to both parts since the original release was 2 separate cassettes (with part 1 being part 2 or the show and part 2 being part 1). AFAIK the VHS release was never digitalized so you probably have the TV and LD versions.

I've still got both cassettes and my VCR. I still play them occasionally although the TV version isn't hugely different to the released videos (as others have already said). I've never understood why they weren't digitised but I'm not techy so can't do it myself.

It never ceases to amaze me how cruel humans can be against fellow humans and animals, especially when in the pursuit of money and power.

I also still have my two cassettes and recorded them to my DVD recorder before I put my VCR in the closet. So now I have them on DVD. Great show!!!!!

By the way, thanks Latin!
