Prince and the Revolution: Live is coming to YouTube for a special weekend event. The concert film showcases the group’s legendary performance at the Carrier Dome in Syracuse, New York back in March 1985, and while it’s been available on VHS and DVD previously, this will be the first time you can stream the show online for free.
This show came right at the end of Prince‘s “Purple Rain” tour, and as such, Prince and the Revolution go through every single one of the iconic album’s tracks, as well as a collection of songs from across Prince’s discography up to that point. From “Let’s Go Crazy” and “When Doves Cry” to “I Would Die 4 U” and more, the concert special is comprised of 20 songs and sure to entertain new and old fans alike.
Prince and the Revolution: Live begins streaming on YouTube tonight Thursday, May 14 at 8 p.m. EST. Before the show, a special pre-stream Q&A will take place featuring Revolution drummer Bobby Z. and moderated by Andrea Swensson from radio station 89.3 The Current.
Beginning Friday, May 15 and continuing on through Sunday, May 17, you can catch Prince and the Revolution: Live on YouTube if you miss the livestream watch party on Thursday night. Make sure to watch before the weekend ends!
Prince and the Revolution: Live will be broadcasted live May 15th, 8pm EST via Prince’s YouTube channel. Link below:
