Rarest Songs you've seen performed live?

Thought this could be an interesting thread... Obviously it depends on when a song is played and how much it has been performed but what are the ones that really stand out to you as unique and rare?

For me....

The Ladder - Manchester ONA 2002

ATWIAD - Indigo2 Aftershow 2007

Hot Summer
- Wercheter Boutique, Belguim 2010

Paisley Park - Manchester P4U Arena 2014
"Still Crazy 4 Coco Rock"

1. Electric Intercourse, Roundhouse
2. What's my name, Roundhouse

3. We didn't know it back in 1995 but P Control, Dolphin and others are now RARE!!
Whatever you heard about me is true
I change the rules and do what I wanna do

The Ball at U4 nightclub
I guess the Ballad of Dorothy Parker is pretty rare too ...I am sure there are some I am forgetting

With a very special thank you to Tina: Is hammer already absolute, how much some people verändern...ICH hope is never so I will be! And if, then I hope that I would then have wen in my environment who joins me in the A....

- Paisley Park

- The Ride

I'd say anyone who got to hear Electric Intercourse have serious bragging rights considering he hasn't played it since 1983. Also, anyone who was there for Moonbeam Levels (eek) in Denmark last year

I got two sides... and they're both friends.

Really wish I had seen the Gold Experience tour, I skipped it partly cause I was too young to go on my own and didn't have the money for a ticket.

Also kinda wish I had gone to Roundhouse now to add those to the list. Also remembered seeing "Ballad of Dorothy Parker" at Indigo 18th august 2007 which was a massive treat.

The Ladder is not really rare, he has performed that many times.

- What's My Name and Chocolate. In one show both songs got a live debut on July 26 (am) 2011 Melkweg Amsterdam. And Chocolate again in the July 26 (pm) show in Ahoy Rotterdam.

- Girl (July 11 2011 NSJ Rotterdam)

As far as I know there are no other performances of Chocolate and Girl... And What's My Name in Melkweg was closer to the studio version, with Prince on bass, really different from the way currently played.

In that show they also performed Ballad Of Dorothy Parker (full) with Venus De Milo inclusion. Pretty rare too?!

As for covers: Foxy Lady opening of NSJ concerts (July 9).

And Love is A Losing Game the night after Amy passed away (Melkweg, July 25 (am) 2011).

I guess you could say 2011 was a good year for rare performances - well for the NSJ and Melkweg shows anyway smile.

Hot Summer - Werchter 2010

Dear Mr. Man (Prince on bass) - NSJ 2011

Also, a nice concert for me was Le Grand Palais in Paris 2009 with Mountains, Why U Wanna Treat Me So Bad, Girl and The One U Wanna C

Have a look at 'The W2A: Euro Tour Song Survey' http://prince.org/msg/12/362417

Why you wanna treat me so bad? (Roskilde 2010)
Girl (Rotterdam north sea night 2)
Calhoun Square (Rotterdam night 2)
The max (empire ballroom)
Paisley park (Manchester both nights)

This is my one too. Was amazed when he played it, very rare performance for sure.

The thread topic is to discuss the witnessing of performances of songs rarely performed.


unique posted a number of songs which have either been performed only once or only occasionally at performances he reported attending.


Please continue to contribute on topic
