the perfect prince set list December 13, 2007

prince-o2.jpg

i saw prince at the o2. as you may know, he played short (just over an hour) sets and switched the set list every night.

we got 7, cream, purple rain, kiss, controversy, i feel for you, u got the look and acoustic snippets of diamonds and pearls, raspberry beret, little red corvette and the beautiful ones. i’m not complaining, but it left me wanting to hear the other 200 or so prince tracks on my ipod, live.

now as long as i’m not in the nosebleed section again – how steep is level 4 at the o2?? – my dream is that prince will return. after all, if the rolling stones were to be believed in their pre-concert marketing hype, their last 50 or so concerts have been ‘your last chance to see the stones – ever’. right. one you can safely hold your breath on. my mum actually believed this threat during the latest tour and finally went to see them.

so if friends and sex and the city can reunite, ricky gervais can write more ‘office’ and take that, boyzone, the spice girls and countless others can reunite, best believe this is not the last we will see of prince on tour. PLEASE.

and if he does, this is my fantasy set list. as far as i could whittle it down.

check out my previous prince at the o2 post, some rare prince, the rest of the paisley park family and those that tried to jack his style anyway and even more attempts to steal his sound.
