Prince Live At Malahide Castle, Dublin, July 30, 2011 — Part 1

2011, August 5

My review of these — a great, unexpected opening number — from reading the on-line chatter none of the fans were expecting ‘Gold‘. Great surprise too that he did ‘Purple Rain‘ so early in the gig   — much suspicion expressed that he timed it because it was actually raining while he played it. Try this for Part 1.1

    Hi, If possible do you have the full performance of Little Red Corvette. I absolutely love this performance and I am so sad I never got to see Prince in concert. If you do have that one song please may I purchase a copy from you, as I can not find it anywhere, thank you.

    Amazing footage Ciaran…the welcome was so warm as only he truly deserved !!!

    • Thank you! So sad that we won’t ever get to welcome Him again.

    I love this footage! I wish I was able to see a show this close, but it was tough with his stadium shows here in the States. So sad there won’t be any more now.

    • Thank you! I’m glad you enjoyed it. I agree totally—it saddens me too that no one will even again get to experience Him live again. We are lucky that we did when we could.

    Hello Ciaran, do you have the complete footage of Prince performing “Gold” the first song of part 1? I would love to see that footage from beginning to end! Thanks anyway

    • Hi Larry—thanks for your message. I’m not sure if I have all of it—I’ll check the PC and get back to you.

    Ciaran, do u have the whole concert on video?

    • Hi Angela,

      I am glad you enjoyed them – many thanks for your messages. Firstly,
      unfortunately, I don’t have the whole concert on video at all – I was too
      busy dancing, singing and enjoying it to have been able to do that! All of
      the footage I have has been compiled into the videos on my blog – so that is the lot I’m afraid!

    Hi, thanks for keeping these vids up. I am trying to watch them – have tried with firefox and with internet explorer but when I click on the video I just get an empty white box with no video. Help! Is there more here than in the Parts 1, 2 and 3 you posted on YouTube?

    • Hi there,

      Further to my e-mail – I’ve just noticed the the blog service I’m using here is upgrading it’s Flash player system – today!

      http://videopress.com/2011/08/08/videopress-flash-player-upgrade/

      This could be the reason you are having difficulties – as I mentioned in my e-mail – might be worth checking back another time.

      Many thanks again.

      Ciarán
