Back in 1987, Prince put together a concert film to follow his tour entitled Sign ” ☮” the Times, the symbol of peace being a dedication of hope to the depressing state of the world. Originally intended to use footage from a live concert in the Netherlands, the quality was deemed unsatisfactory by Prince and therefore was entirely reshot at his own Paisley Park Studios.
The album’s music draws on funk, soul, psychedelic pop, and rock music and features keyboardist Boni Boyer, bassist Levi Seacer, Jr., guitarist Miko Weaver, drummer Sheila E., dancer Cat Glover, and former member of The Revolution keyboardist Dr. Fink.
Check out the video for “It’s Gonna Be A Beautiful Night,” featuring an epic drum break and some incomparable dance moves from Prince himself, as well as some astonishing performances from his stellar band:
