*In life, Prince was reportedly not down with his music being featured on YouTube, but now his estate has partnered with the streaming giant to host a three-day event of the iconic concert filmed, “Prince and the Revolution: Live.”
The show was filmed during the “Purple Rain” tour in Syracuse, NY on March 30, 1985.
It will be available on Prince’s official YouTube Channel for three days only, beginning on Friday, May 14 and continuing through 11:59pm on Sunday, May 17.
In collaboration with YouTube and Google, the streaming event will run in support of the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization (powered by UN Foundation and Swiss Philanthropy Foundation). Any viewer donations will include a matching component from Google (Google.org will match $2 for every $1 up to $5M). Full details here.
Check out the tracklist below.
