How it should be done - Prince Live
Current mood: Humbled
Category: Humbled Music

Saw Prince tonight in London.
I don't need to bang on about how amazing he is because quite literally even if you're not a fan most people will agree this man is untouchable live. It goes without saying he's a genius. Almost freak of nature genius super talented.

No, my point is, his stance on 'the hits' and the mentality of the audience.

He made a very cheeky and clever point tonight and it was this : He sprinkled very well known and mega hits thoughout the show but did not behave like a jukebox. He knew his audience was comprised of all walks of life and all manner of 'fans' - and so he catered to all but did not pander to the casual spectator. That is, he did not just churn out a greatest hits show just so people would walk away full.

Not until the auditorium almost cleared out.

The show (spectacular as it was) ended, lights came up and it was clear that he was not coming back. It was clear with the last strains of 'Purple Rain' as hordes of the audience started making their way for the exits to be first in line at the taxi ranks or tube lines - that the 'show' was over.

It was clear when the house lights went up, and stayed up.

It was clear when the roadies came out and started breaking down the stage.

It was clear to almost everyone except those die hard fans who sat in their chairs and refused to leave.

Prince came back, some 20 minutes later to perform, ironically a medley of his biggest ever hits. When Doves Cry. Raspberry Beret.
Alphabet St. Sign O The Times.
Just him and a keyboard blasting out samples like a karaoke machine.

He made a jibe about those who left to 'catch their trains' and it really struck a chord in me that this was the reward. This was the 'thankyou' from him, to us, for sticking around. For letting him evolve. For giving him the respect he deserved.

It really struck a chord in me.
