The show is what the title says it is: A Show for Prince Fans.
Not your average everyday Prince fans -- the 1980s Purple Rain loving Prince fans. If you’re one of those, you’re invited too. But this show is for the die-hards -- the people who bought bootleg CDs, the people who listened to the whole albums, the people who joined the NPG Club. This is a show for people -- black, white, Puerto Rican, everybody just a freakin -- whose lives have been touched by the unquestioned musical genius of Prince Rogers Nelson
13: Not Like I Love My Guitar
We know you’re expecting a ton of rock tracks and spine-tingling guitar solos. But in the late 1990s, Prince released “The Truth,” featuring mostly acoustic guitar and a stripped down sound that shows he could be quietly brilliant as well. Prince fans, meet songs like “3rd Eye,” “Don’t Play Me,” and “Fascination.” We also take you back to classics like “Crazy You” and an acoustic version of “7.”
12: Beautiful Strange
Strangely Beautiful. Beautiful Strange. For all of his prowess in funk, rock and R&B, there are some Prince tracks that don’t fit into any category. They’re weird, unique, and totally Prince. Join us for a tour of His Royal Badness’ more eclectic and eccentric work, including classics like “Annie Christian,” “Judas Kiss,” and “Batdance.” The late career dreamy, stream-of-consciousness track “June” is here, proving Prince can make a song about burning pasta interesting.
To truly appreciate the genius of Prince, it’s best to listen to how effortlessly he leaps from funk jams like “Partyman” and “Xtralovable” to quiet jazzy jams like “Strollin’.” Or for that matter, how he can jump from the look on “The X’s Face” to the gospel-funk of “The Everlasting Now.” Buckle up and join Lee and Shannon for a wild ride . . .
10.2: Prince Gon' Get You High
Musician, producer and radio personality Tracey D joins Shannon and Lee for more frolicking around the Prince catalog. Check out chart toppers like “Let’s Pretend We’re Married” and “Baby, I’m a Star,” also more recent jams like “WOW,” “Sticky Like Glue” and “Stare.” And if you’re having one of those days when people getting on your last nerve . . . Prince gon’ get U “High!”
Shannon and Lee are joined by musician, producer and radio personality Tracey D for some random jams from the Purple Yoda. Listen for classics like “DMSR” and “Uptown,” and stick around for the playful jam “My Medallion.” Also “Get Yo Groove On,” from Emancipation and the fan-favorite “Joy In Repetition.”
9.2: We Can Funk
Lee and Shannon continue the deep dive into Prince’s immense library, kicking off with the George Clinton collaboration “We Can Funk.” Also, Prince’s version of “100MPH,” originally released by Maserati. And we hope the water’s warm enough because there’s about 10 minutes of “Computer Blue!”
