Prince was an explosive talent. He was the one artist that every rocker and funkster loved equally. That’s a tough line to cross over to, but Prince jumped it with ease. And in high heels shoes!
Classic Albums Live has been performing the Purple Rain album for a decade now. We know how to perform this album. Chris Rouse understands the genius of Prince. He hits all of the vocal greatness but also brings a subliminal love of the album to the stage. It’s an absolute joy to watch someone like Chris do what they love to do.
It’s an album that generations will find the new power in. Prince was one of the greats. We’re going to honour and respect his legacy the only way we know how: note for note – cut for cut.
