Prince Brings Funky Rock to Manchester With ‘Let’s Go Crazy’ [VIDEO]
Since Prince enforced a camera ban at his shows — this way fans can actually enjoy the songs instead of recording them — no one has really been able to see what goes down during one of his recent live performances. However, the lauded singer himself decided to share the action with his loyal supporters and released footage of his ‘Let’s Go Crazy’ performance with 3rdEyeGirl.
Taking place in Manchester, England, on Saturday night (Feb. 22), Prince looks like rock royalty while singing his 1984 hit. The crooner slowed the tempo and added some rock and roll flair to the track as he took center stage.
And check out his attention to detail. His ’70s-inspired look is complete with round shades, bell-bottoms and an afro. Shredding on his guitar, the Purple One seems to channel his inner Jimi Hendrix during the set. He’s easily making American fans excited about his upcoming U.S. tour, which kicks off in June.
According to the Guardian, Prince performed new tracks from 3rdyEyGirl’s album, ‘PLECTRUMELECTRUM,’ as well as a few classics during the show in England.
