was anyone on this site at First Avenue on August 3, 1983?

or, for that matter, any very-well known Prince concert (opening for the Stones, birthday show 1984, Yokohama 1986, etc.)

i know it was almost 40 years ago, but it’s worth a shot...

if so, what was it like? sure, there’s videos and soundboards, but i would kill to know what the energy was like in that room when the opening chord for Let’s Go Crazy sounded or when he hit the high notes for the first time in Purple Rain.

also, how does it feel to officially be on one of the most famous and highest-rated albums of all time??

Some details about opening for the Stones in this thread:

And in this article:

I could suggest do an internet search but we all know how that ends up. It would be interesting too to here more from fans who were there.

I was at Tokyo’s “Big Egg” in late August of 1990 for Prince’s Nude Tour show that was widely broadcast WW. The one where he played maybe the definitive live version of Bambi.

Unfortunately no.

I attended my first concert: August 25th 1986 (Paris). Unforgettable! I hope that this concert will B included in the forthcoming Parade SDE (fingers crossed).

Front row in front of Prince at La Cigale (Paris) aftershow: October 12th 2009. What a gig!

Been listening to the soundboard of the 8/3/83 show a lot lately. Would have been amazing to have witnessed that show in person.

No, since I wasn't born yet.
