Prince Ever Tear His Pants On Stage?

Odd question, but that's how my mind works: Has Prince ever torn his pants doing splits or slides or anything out of the ordinary for a performer?

I think all of his pants are made of a stretch fabric except for the Hit & Run tour when he wore some suits. But those suit pants were baggy, which protected him from such wardrobe malfunctions. He also wore suits during three ONA tour, but I don't think he was splitting during that tour.

A rip in his trousers would certainly give new meaning to "The Nude Tour".

Why don't you go back to your kindergarten yard to ask such interesting and crucial questions?

I wish the people behind this site can make a decision regarding splitting M&M.

It can't come quick enough.

Generally speaking, the subject name/title of the thread gives a pretty good idea of whether the post is about his music or something else about him. If a thread has a title like this one does, you are at liberty to stay away from it.

Can't answer your question, but ... the first (someone correct me if I'm wrong) time he was on American Bandstand his guitar strap broke or came undone very early in the song and his guitar (which was slung behind him) slid down his back and onto the floor! No Prince guitar solos that day!

You are correct, thank you for pointing that out.

lol It sure did. He was mid dance move with the guitar on his back and pop went the strap and it slid right down onto the ground. I believe at the same time he kicked his mic stand or did something with it because, IIRC, he begins using Andre's the entire time?

But was that the first time he was on the show? It must have been. He looked *so* young.

Yeah, actually I believe it was his first TV appearance ever. So he was quite nervous - you can definitely tell. Some people have stated that his lack of speaking to Dick Clarke was owed to his nervousness, but I am pretty sure Dez debunked that in his book and stated that they had decided back stage to not say shit to him and only answer with 1 word or gestures, etc.

He was 21 at the time!

Yes, he does look quite nervous. It was quite funny to watch actually, knowing what was to come. I think it would have been not so funny if his career had stayed that course! You can see the others giving him glances that betray his nervousness.

Watch the America video, he has a hole on the back of his leg, since it was made of sheer lace.

Ah, what the hell.

In the end of the Take Me With U video, it appears he's got a big ol' rip down the middle.

There was one time in '91 when he was on the MTV Awards playing GETT OFF and he ripped his pants and his ass was hanging out... what? He planned that? WHAT? You mean he actually had a pair of pants made that showed off his ass?

Oh... nevermind!
