    Was there ever a better live act than Prince?

    I don't know how you pick the best live act, but I sure wish I had got to see Prince live.

    I've always liked prince and my friends have always shunned me. I'm almost 50 now; I still like Prince and I still don't have any friends...:hmm:

    I saw him many years ago with the same band in the video clip posted by Australian. He played most of his current stuff and a medley of his past stuff. He also played every instrument at least once during the show: piano, guitar, drums, bass, trumpet, saxophone, etc. His shows were extremely fast paced and high energy.

    I started going to shows around the '80's. Seen lots of people perform-some of them still living and some not. Can't say what's the best I've seen, but Prince was among the best.

    I heard his vault has something like twenty years of unreleased music; hope we get to hear some.

    Thats what I wanted to hear. It would have been an entertaining show.
    The energy level is up there.

    Yeah looking forward to hearing the music from the vault. There's some good guitar tone on his last album.

    I live in Minnesota and saw him in a club when he started to be noticed. I was floored. I totally forgot the time, the year, and the planet I was on (and I'm a Heavy Metal guy). I was meeting someone in the club and Prince happened to be the act playing. Something about his performance was magical. He was pure joy to watch.

    Sliiiiiightly different energy level there. Maybe The Who, circa 1969-1973, would be closer.
