It's true...Ive been reading alot of the comments and most of them are positive. Seems Prince missed some more fans by not being on there. Kinda makes me sad. Think about all the younger people who couldve become his fans eek

In 1988 at age of 15 I witnessed the Lovesexy Tour live in Oakland
I could describe the show but that that video is an accurate representation of what I saw.
With a few updated props..like
During Bob George he wore a gangster pinstriped suit, not that silly get up in the video
The Thunderbird re appeared with police lights lol
And I swear the machine gun flashed when he shot it :shoot2:

Sheila and cat jumping n dancing around in skintight tank tops :drool2:

Anywho I flipping love that video you watched
I got it on dvd somewhere lurking
Cant believe my purple psychedelic pimp slap pimp2

And I descend from grace, In arms of undertow
I will take my place, In the great below

Seems to me that a lot of his songs are better when he does them live. Youtube has also helped because I now have images to go along with many of the songs and Prince's imagery was usually awesome. He was truly an artist in every way.

Man he was so annoyed when we brought that ish up. I was looking down my Twitter timeline and noticed a tweet I made to him about my students' projects(I'm a music teacher) and how I played his music in class and my students always love it but when they try to go find his stuff on their own to study it they can't find it. Because 14-18 year olds(I teach college and dual credit high chool college courses) pretty much use Youtube exclusively for music exploration.

I hardly ever tweeted him( I'm a pragmatic fam), especially with all of his tweeting and deleting but sometimes I had to because I think he was thinking about everything all wrong. No one wanted him to give in to BS industry trends or not make the amount of money he deserved. We just wanted everyone to know and love his music like we do. I also think it had something to do with not getting the masters straightened out until 2014, if he wasn't making money off the work then no one else should have either, which I understand. When he started leaving a few things up, like the 3rdEyeGirl vids, I was so relieved to have a bit of something to show. Everything being up now is so bittersweet, I got so many Final Projects on Prince,more than I have before , but the music was easily available to the kids for all of the wrong reasons. sad

I've always said that Lovesexy show is the best show. It's my favorite tour.

-I love listening to the rehearsals, and seeing the behind the scenes footage of the rehearsals!

-I love the aesthetics( I want that freaking Blue Piano and the Blue Angel, and the outfits!!!!)

-the 360 stage

-the best versions of The Cross and Anna Stesia live are from this show. A whole stadium singing Love is God, God is Love....my goodness!

-That split he hits in Housequake every.single.time.

-The arrangements are INSANE.

-I love that band, I love Cat, I love Boni! Ugh I love me some Lovesexy.

I was in a musical back in the day and we had to design our own costumes, why did I design a pair of pants with my character's name down the side in sparkly letters like the Lovesexy show fits LMAO.

I had the video of the Lovesexy tour and I nearly wore it out I played it so much.

Brilliant show - number one on my list of shows I wish I had seen live.

Depending on the seating.. In the round.
Some front rows couldn't possible have a good view of the stage. Due to it being high and in the round
I was back like 20 rows where it started to raise, I had the whole stage in view cool

That Dortmund show is not even a great example of a Lovesexy concert. I loved that tour but I don't like that show or video that much.

.

I never liked the in-the-round setup that Prince liked so much. I saw a bunch of USA Lovesexy shows and maybe it was good for me for that tour because I had a better view, even when I had bad seats but sitll prefer traditional stage setup.

He did the sexiest guitar solo at the end of "Let's Go Crazy" on that tour. He was wearing a black pants with what seemed like cream swirls on it and a white Ruffles top exposing his stomach and low back,-'d he was ripped back then. His hair was pressed and curled and my god. Wow πŸ˜πŸ’œ

Lovesexy will save your life.

I actually saw the tour in Los Angeles in 1988. It was one of the most amazing shows I've still ever seen in my life. Watching the Dortmund video years later brought back such wonderful memories, and now there's a Toronto video out there, too.
