There’s never been a better time to stream a classic concert on YouTube, and now the Prince estate is making available a pretty epic one, according to a report from Variety. Starting on Friday, May 15, “Prince and the Revolution: Live,” filmed at the end of Prince’s Purple Rain tour in March 1985, will be up for three days on YouTube. The streaming event also is aimed to help raise money for the COVID-19 solidarity response fund for the World Health Organization. Google is matching viewer donations, $2 for every $1 donated, up to $5 million. See more details about it here.
The live set features every track from Purple Rain, plus highlights from 1999 and Controversy and even a few rarities and b-sides, so it should be a fun one to check out.
