The closing night of SXSW Music Festival in Austin, Texas was something to remember. Not only did legendary rap group A Tribe Called Quest reunite to put on a greatest hits set, one of the greatest musicians to ever live, Prince, graced the SXSW stage and rocked until around 3 am.
The Purple One performed for three whole hours despite beginning his set after midnight. Prince treated fans to hits like “1999,” U Got The Look,” and “Purple Rain” before performing his own renditions of Michael Jackson’s “Don’t Stop Til You get Enough” and Aretha Franklin’s “I Never Loved A Man (The Way That I Love You).” After working the crowd into a frenzy, Prince performed six encores and left the crowd still wanting more.
Check out a brief clip of Prince singing fan favorite “Something In The Water (Does Not Compute).” Hurry up and check it out. You know Prince will have it removed soon.
