I think yes that the majority was in Europe. Most of them were impromptu too. When the Prince entourage came into town he sent people out to find a place to do aftershow. I know that as I was the manager of a place in Copenhagen at the time. We had two aftershows happening. His people literally showed up at 4pm and said that Prince would like to play a show at midnight. Me being a huge Prince fan couldn't say no so we had to cancel the bands we already had on schedule. One great outcome was the Vega Aftershow ;o)

Up till now not one word from The estate on any released (or unreleased) project concerning an aftershow.


My favorite; ''Paard Van Troje''


One of the best aftershows ever !

Princevault will have the answer to that. But I remember hearing some pretty good aftershows from the US, especially during the Lovesexy and Act 1 tours. Maybe it's because he simply toured Europe more often than America in the late 80s/early 90s?
If you take any of this seriously, you're a bigger fool than I am.

Well, I did check that (of course). wink

Still for some unexplained reason, he must've had a big heart for Europe.

Specially during the second part of the eighties.

To me it somehow indicates his dual relationship with the US.

He absolutely wanted to shoot two films in Europe by the way.

Even filmed a few video's over here too iirc.

Released his 20TEN album over here... etc.

(Just give me a moment to be a European nationalist. LOL)

wink

Other artists have done small venue shows after big stadium shows for fun (Bowie, the cure ) but Prince did it quite regularly and seemed to have fun doing these shows judging from the ones I saw and have listened to.

I would speculate that he enjoyed the chance to "play for fun" and try out material in a lower pressure environment than a crowded stadium smile
