Caught at the height of worldwide Prince mania, this live video captures Prince & the Revolution at the absolute peak of their popularity - on their Purple Rain tour. Prince's sheer performance stamina and showmanship are devastating, and the Revolution are in top form as well. A must-have for serious fans.
Pop Life" was recorded before Prince's previous album, the soundtrack to his movie Purple Rain, was even completed. It was the first sign that Prince was getting tired of the celebrity game - the lyrics are about the trappings of being a celebrity in the music business, the drugs and pressure he was feeling. According to this legend, what you hear in the sample is the crowd booing him off the stage, then cheering as Prince leaves. However, Prince Vault claims the samples actually come from a sound library set by the company Sound Ideas. In June 1985, around the time of the release of the album, Prince announced he would no longer do live performances, a promise he only kept throughout the end of that year. He was touring and playing live again, though sporadically, to promote the Parade album and the film Under the Cherry Moon in 1986.
