Paisley Park 1/21/16 Piano & Mic Suggestion

His final performance at Paisley was 1/21/16 and that final performance was the most intimate, personal and special performance that he has ever done at Paisley. Paisley Park should commemorate and celebrate that performance every year on 1/21 with a special screening of both shows in their entirety. The shows should be shown behind the paino in the main soundstage just where he gave us that special performance so that all fans can experience this special event at Paisley Park.

We know it was filmed because Paisley Park is currently showing a clip in the main soundstage of Free Urself from that show, which was his final song of the second set.

On a side note, technically, his last performance was on 1/23/16 when he did the sampler set, but that was more of a DJ experience kind of thing and I think we all would consider 1/21 to be his final performance at Paisley. He also did a short version of chopsticks days before his passing, but I wouldn't count that either.

1/21/16 was historic and was about his life. I have a special reverence for the Atlanta shows also, but those shows bring out sadness and have a separate place in Prince history.
