Orange cloud guitar?

The website advertising the O2 exhibit mentions they will have Prince's orange cloud guitar made (but not used)for the Super Bowl performance. It then says that it was used during the tour in 07 which i never knew about. Can anyone confirm that he in fact used the orange cloud ever in concert? Any footage? I always thought this guitar was never played in public. I've seen tons of footage from this time period and have never seen him with any cloud much less the orange one.

I never heard that he used it in public but it was known from the 2006/2007 time period

Oh and in a recent interview, Tyka says Prince liked Orange more than Purple!


“The stand out piece for me is his orange Cloud guitar. It is strange because people always associate the colour purple with Prince, but his favourite colour was actually orange.”

It's mostly in silhouette, but you could be right!
