Back in 2008, the beloved artist formerly and currently known as Prince graced the main stage of Coachella for a headlining performance. Easily one of the best sets in the history of Coachella, Prince played a career-spanning show that included a number of his biggest hits and some fun covers throughout.
The famed concert recently made headlines, as Radiohead’s Thom Yorke asked Prince to “unblock” the video of his performance of their song “Creep.” The video of Prince’s “Creep” at Coachella was truly something to behold, and you can watch it below:
In honor of The Purple One’s lifelong legacy, we wanted to share full audio from his incredible set. Listen in and experience the magic; try not to get too choked up when you hear him sing “Angel” by Sarah McLachlan…
RIP Prince. The full setlist can be seen below:
On Sunday, April 30, Prince, and the many incredible artists that we lost in 2016, will be honored in New Orleans during Jazz Fest for a “Funk 2016: A Tribute To Musicians We Lost” tribute concert at the Howlin’ Wolf. Prince, David Bowie, George Michael, Maurice White, Phife Dawg, and more will all be honored with musical collaborations from Michelangelo Carubba, Shira Elias, Sammi Garett, Craig Brodhead, and the entire horn section from Turkuaz, along with Joey Porter, Garrett Sayers, and Lyle Divinsky of The Motet, D.J. Williams of Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, Danny Mayer of the Eric Krasno Band, Steveland Swatkins of Allen Stone’s band, Khris Royal and Maurice “Mobetta” Brown.
The Revivalists side project RumpleSTEELskin will open the night, while Brooklyn’s own The London Souls will perform a special super-late-night performance in The Den immediately following the Fu*k 2016 tribute set. Make no mistake, this is sure to be one of the biggest throwdowns during Jazz Fest!
