PRINCE Funks Out Toronto on his Welcome 2 Canada Tour Stop Air Canada Center November the 25th 2011

     Finding things wrong with a PRINCE concert is like finding a needle in a haystack, all most impossible…well with last night's first show of a two-night stand at The Air Canada Center in Toronto Prince's Welcome 2 Canada Tour left me and 99.9% of the others that were in attendance with little to complain about..except maybe not playing that certain song, but that's just a fact of life at every show I go to.

   Funky, Sexy, Cool….we got it all and more last night, from D.M.S.R. (Dance, Music, Sex, Romance) through to Take Me with U , onward we were graced with cover versions of The Cars "Let's Go"  to Michael Jackson's "Don't Stop Till You Get Enough" …the hits were fired off left right and center like nobody's business..Let's Go Crazy, Delirious, Little Red Corvette, U Got That Look, and Purple Rain, during which confetti cannons were shot off showered us all in purple and gold.

   "His Royal Badness" treated us to no less than six...yes six encores, he was on fire, just when you thought it was over he was back for more and the audience ate every little bit of it up.

  The first time I experienced Prince live was 27 years ago while he was touring for the album/movie Purple Rain and the 53 year old guy who stood in front of me last night worked longer and harder than his 26 year old self…..the kid was back and badder than ever.
