Opening Night | Prince Kicks Off Hit & Run Tour II
Prince mixed material from throughout his career including plenty of hits such as “Controversy,” “1999,” “Diamonds and Pearls” and “Little Red Corvette” with newer songs for his first show in Birmingham in 19 years. The singer/guitarist took the stage holding a handful of purple and cream balloons he released into the crowd as the band launched into “FUNKNROLL.” After two-and-a-half hours the rocker and his band brought the show to a close with a second encore cover of “Play That Funky Music” by Wild Cherry. The tour continues tonight in Manchester.
