Prince and the Revolution's Live 1985 concert to stream on YouTube in charity special

Capturing Prince's iconic Purple Rain Tour in 1985

The Prince Estate, in partnership with YouTube, will host a three-day streaming event of Prince and the Revolution: Live, a historic concert captured at the Carrier Dome in Syracuse, NY on March 30, 1985.

Prince and the Revolution: Live showcases Prince and his iconic band at the peak of their Purple Rain Tour, and was the first live concert footage that Prince officially released as both a television broadcast and home video.

The 20 song setlist includes 5 songs from the album 1999 and all 9 songs from Purple Rain including a 20 minute version of the title song. 

The audio from the concert has been remastered by longtime Prince mastering engineer Bernie Grundman, and will be available officially in digital format for the first time across all streaming and download partners on Friday, 15 May. 

Just hit up Prince's YouTube channel for the live stream event across the weekend.
