Create alternate hits set list

Fact is Prince become lazy.he have many hits yet he plays the same ,i bet he will play Let's Go Crazy as an opener on the Australia tour following with Delirious yet he have many hits he could play. Create a setlist of Hits Prince avoids playing that you think it would be fresh and interesting to the fans and Prince's band to play

It's obvious "Let's Go Crazy" will be the opener, although it would be nice to hear him change it up. "Baby, I'm A Star" would be a good opener too!

If it breaks when it bends, U better not put it in!

You never know. I thought similar for the O2 shows in 2007 but he opened the first one with Purple Rain.

Musically, "Thunder" would be an energetic, opener, but I think most people wouldn't recognize it, and I think the lyric content might turn people off too soon. Only hardcore fans would appreciate it, I think.

If it breaks when it bends, U better not put it in!

He is going to start with the songs people recognize from the first 3 cords because there are an awful lot of people who think or do care to know that Prince made music other than just Purple Rain.

yeah i know. It will be the same show we have seen for the last 10 years. Lets go crazy, purple rain, little red corvette, kiss, musicology, prince and the band, controversy, shhh, 1999, delerious, u got the look, 7, cream, jungle love, cool, take me with you, raspberry beret and LOTS of horrid covers.

His show has gotten so boring and just plain lazy. Hopefully one day he will do another tour for the fans and not for the $$. Then again I guess the days of The Rainbow Children, Gold and EVERY tour before then are gone. No Longer are the Days of Wild!! sad

Can't really agree he's lazy; more like he's accommodating lazy fans who know about four of his albums and are coming to hear what they know. Let's Go Crazy sure creates a lot of energy to open with, so I can see why he often uses it. I don't know about anyone else, but I found creating a setlist is a lot harder than I first thought--I started with 50+ songs and had to whittle them down, and that's hard to do keeping some kind of flow. He's still going to be stuck with a 3+ hour concert with my setlist, and, sorry, I didn't use just alternate songs.

U Got the Look

Cream

Guitar

Satisfied

She's Always in My Hair

Hot Thing

Crucial

Condition of the Heart

The Sun, the Moon and Stars

Nothing Compares to You

If I Was Your Girlfriend

Automatic

Pink Cashmere

Whole Lotta Love

Stairway to Heaven (yes, to my knowledge, he's never publically played/released it, but I just know he could slay it and, hey, this is my setlist, so I'm including it)

Unchain My Heart (Joe Cocker song--ditto comments for Stairway to Heaven)

Just My Imagination

Somewhere Here on Earth

Thieves In the Temple

Days of Wild

Fury

Do Me, Baby

Slow Love

Still Would Stand All Time

XHalation

Anna Stesia

Gold

Mountains

Forever In My Life

DMSR

Adore

Purple Rain

I Wish You Heaven (that's a nice way to say good night)

And if he's really ever in the mood to commit to his "We're going to be here all night" statement, then I'll add Insatiable, Saviour, Holy River, A Million Days, Call My Name, In this Bed I Scream, I Could Never Take the Place of Your Man, Anotherloveholenyohead, Automatic, LaVaux, EyeNo, So Dark, Endorphinmachine, I Love You But I Don't Trust You Anymore.
