Aaah, thank you. I must confess...I never actually look at the front page anymore. neutral

But thank you for answering. I hope that there is something new in this deluxe version, something to make it worth purchasing. confused

Alright, weighing in here...

Not too sure about these shows, personally. There are some great moments no doubt, and some of those horn arrangements are are real slick, but the shows seemed generally kinda tame and lackluster compared to the Prince I'm used to.. even of recent years. Nowhere near as "flat" as the 3EG shows (that SNL performance? Ugh) but definitely dull compared to the NPG shows of 2010/2011.

Did anyone else spot the sloppiness?! The start of Old Friends 4 Sale was weak (Prince shot the hornz a look) and the intro to Mutiny in Show 2 was just a complete shambles, as the 3EG and the hornz started playing completely different things. There were also a number of moments where P had to give the band multiple cues before he got what he wanted (Let's Work, notably) - and what was Donna playing in Cool?! Sounded completely wrong.

I know this sounds really nitpicky but it's the first time I've ever noticed such glaringly obvious horrible mistakes from any of Prince's bands.



Also, you guys arguing about whether P cried during The Breakdown? Just because it looked like he did doesn't mean he was actually crying. Prince is a consummate performer. His performances of the more "powerful" ballad type songs always lean heavily towards the theatrical/acting. His voice breaking, breath faltering, and him wiping under his eye is proof of nothing. This is what he's always done, it's all part of the show.

Exactly, I personally never cared for the theatrics. I found it really corny and beneath him but I always accepted the good with the bad when it came to P. That said I did see him tear up during the Celebration performance in 2001 when he played I Love U I don't Trust U Anymore

That was crying not theatrics and he was not that theatical in a emotional manner. He joked around a lot more than any crying.

Yes. When Prince was truly emotional I could see and feel it. He was also emotional during ILYBIDTYAnymore at 2009. I've never seen the 2001 performance but I can see that he'd be even more emotional back then, given that it took him years to - if ever - to deal with everything that happened in the late 2000's.

On my way home today I was listening to Dark from the 2013 shows and I always laugh when I hear Prince sing that he's gone thrfouh "14 cans of windex". Uh, Windex doesn't come in cans, Prince...too funny! Only a guy who hasn't to wash a window for 40 years would say that! ūüėÄūüíú

This is what he's always done, it's all part of the show.

Not during, but after. The song/performance was over and Prince was just sitting there pushing buttons on the keyboard in preparation for the sampler set that came next. There's no reason to be theatrical at that point. Also, if he was just acting, he'd want to keep attention on himself. Instead, he directed the audience's attention to the horn players while he got himself together. He appeared to possibly be blinking back tears, was wiping his eyes, contorting his face, breathing heavy, and continued to do so even after the spotlight was off him. When the spotlight hit him again at the beginning of "When Doves Cry", he yanked his hat down in front of his face and kept yelling for the lights to be turned off. It was an awkward few moments. Now, I don't believe this was evidence that he knew he was going to die, or anything of the sort, but he appeared to be upset about something.

Apparently, "The Breakdown" was an especially poignant song for him...


http://www.rollingstone.c...y-20160502

He ends by previewing a couple of songs from what will become Art Official Age, excusing himself from the room when he gets to the wailing ballad "Breakdown." The breakup-themed lyrics seem particularly personal: "I used to throw the party every New Year's Eve/First one intoxicated, last one to leave/Waking up in places that you would never believe/Give me back the time, you can keep the memories." Afterward, he confirms that the song comes from a "sensitive‚ÄČ...‚ÄČnude" place: "You could touch it and it would just hurt instantly."

Thank you I remember reading this he actually left the room when the song was played. That song was coming from a deep place and that give me back the time line shows deep regret about something.

The Breakdown - I shall have to watch it again as I only saw the clip on YT.

I have only watched show 1 in full so far. But I did notice in Show 1 he was wiping his eyes a fair bit too and I think because it was hot and sweaty - I actually noticed him sweating which you never see much with Prince - and he was having to dab his eyes I think because of the heavy makeup. The ladies would know what eyeliner and mascara feels like when you sweat. It is horrible and gets in your eyes and in show 1 I noticed often that his eyes were irriated and he would dab at them. So on watching the Breakdown from Show 3 I kind of wonder was it in fact makeup / sweat causing him to be irriated and wearing the hat just compounded it as it made his head more sweaty???????

Thank you Prince for every note you left behind ūüíú

Nope. He was intentionally inserting emotion for show during the concert.
During the interview you described below, yes, I believe he was emotional then. Maybe.
Sometimes you can't recreate or hold onto the moment you wrote the song.

Why would the writer say he left the room if he did not and why would he make those statements about the song if the did not have some emotion over it? Just think about that for a moment.

The links that some of you will go to not see what I belive 24k people have viewed on YOUTUBE and many have commented on.

I saw him dabbing his eyes earlier in the concerts as well. But it just looked like sweat or eye makeup. This clip was different. He wasn't just dabbing. He was wiping and he looked stressed out. Also, keep in mind that crying would get makeup in one's eyes even more so than sweat would.

BTW,if you watch other clips like some of closeups during DMSR during the Musicology tour, he is sweating as well. Prince did sweat...LOL.

During the Musicolgy his shirt was drenched with sweat but you know for some people he was super human who did sweat, eat or cry.

The YouTube video that I've seen posted elsewhere on the board is poor quality, and cuts off before the scene we're describing is over. People need to get the proper download.

Again, if it was intentional, he wouldn't be trying to get attention off himself. I believe when he was performing other older songs during the concert, he was putting on an emotional act. However, "The Breakdown" was recently recorded at the time, and still raw for him when the Rolling Stone interview was conducted months after this Montreux performance.

You mfs make me CRAZY lol I believe he was truly emotional at the end of Breakdown - he was wiping tears, not sweat. I've seen him perform too many ballads - there's winky showmanship, & there's heartfelt emotion. This was the latter. Let's not forget he wrote it from a clearly vulnerable place, & when you access those feelings it can hit you hard, even in a room full of people. Dude was feeling that, beautiful performance (falsetto was a little gritty, but I dug it) heart
heart prince I never met you, but I LOVE you & I will forever!! Thank you for being YOU - my little Princey, the best to EVER do it prince heart

I finally finished watching all three shows and was disappointed in the first two since he does not play any instruments and they are slick, revue-like performances. Have to admit though the horns are impressive and it is a festive party atmosphere. Definitely agree it is a throwback to the Parade tour, only not as good. I did enjoy how uptempo the second show is though.

Now the third show is more my thing, lots of Prince playing, cool eclectic set list, plenty of guitar, vocals, and then plenty of funk heaped on the end to round it out. I agree Donna's playing is repetitive but overall I love this show, pro shot with great video/sound and he seems to really enjoy himself there and connect with the crowd. What more could you want? To me, considering performance, quality, etc., easily one of his best I have seen this century.

Stop hating on it haters. We are so lucky to have it available to us.

Peace and here's to a much less cruel New Year.

If you've got funk, you've got style.

I remember a lot of the fans overthere felt like that after the first 2 days and were very happy when he picked up the guitar for the 3rd night. I personally preferred the first show though.

No but I was talking to many people at the shows and after the shows and nearly everybody I talked to felt like that.

Prince looked healthier and was a lot more energetic in his 2014 London shows with 3RDEYEGIRL than show 3 at Montreux.

Although, show 3 is solid, something seems to be off to me. I suspected it when I heard the audio only, but the visual element has confirmed it.

Y'all...I received my DVDs...Pro-shot...its such a fantastic experience to watch this on the big TV screen. Just excellent. I'm really loving it, and really have a bigger appreciation for the NPG horns and the obvious brotherhood they had going on, and they can dance too.
It was nice to see Prince with this family.
Show 1 is a bit dark, just like show 2 of 2009 was. But still really enjoyable. The rest seemed fine colorwise. Show 3 was grainy some of the time - but just a very little bit. Could've been the large screen tv.
But it was certainly a great quality nonetheless and seeing Prince up close so large as life at this time, well, it's as if April never happened.
I smiled a lot and also cried at one point, for some reason during "She's Always in my Hair." I think it was the 3rd song I watched and having thssenfinalky just got me a little emotional ūüėĆ
Really worth it.

Show 3 is epic and along with 2009 Montreux is among the best circulating live performances available. The energy from Show 1 is great and I love the arrangements. Show 2 is similar to Show 1 and I was disappointed with a few of the repeated songs, but there are some gems like Shades of Umber that distinguish the show. The way he directs the band in the first two shows is admirable. I know some people are critical of Show 1 and Show 2, but I would also say that those shows are amongst the best circulating shows as well, but they do pale in comparison with Show 3 or 2009 Montreux.
