Prince Live At Malahide Castle, Dublin, July 30, 2011 — Part 3

2011, August 5

My review — Seeing what he did with some of the most popular of his tracks on Saturday — it’s no wonder I’m now listening to dance music. This section where he combined ‘Sign “O” the Times‘, ‘Alphabet Street‘, ‘When Doves Cry‘ & ‘Hot Thing‘ in a dark, terse, unfamiliar (but still recognisable) phase — was my favourite bit! (No surprise there — probably!) It all ended far too quickly — a bit like this does — didn’t think at the time that  ‘U Got The Look‘ was going to be the last song of the night. Try this sample…

    Good man ciaran…i’ve been lookin at ur vids of this gig 4 the last 5 years…brings back great memories of the day! Seen him 4 the first time when i was 17 in cork in 1990 & in manchester 2 years ago 4 the last time 😦

    • You’re very welcome Trevor. I’ve managed to keep them on line since 2011 and will continue to do so. Glad you enjoyed them.
      It just saddens me so much that no one will get to experience Him live again. Music’s greatest loss as far as I’m concerned.

      I hope you caught the documentary shown on BBC4 on Prince this evening (25 Nov 2011). Brought back so may memories! What an utterly astounding artist he really is!
