The audio from the three songs in the climatic final concert of the film, which included "I Would Die 4U", "Baby I'm A Star", and the title song "Purple Rain" were recorded live on August 3, 1983 at the First Avenue club in Minneapolis as part of a fund raiser for the Minnesota Dance Theater. It also marked the official debut of Princes new band The Revolution. The concert scenes were re-enacted later. See more »
The notecard application Apollonia fills out in the first club scene lists her experience as "Singer & Dancer," yet when it is posted on the board in later scenes this section is blank. See more »
Ok, so it may not be the award-winning "movie of the year" type-film (apart from the brilliant soundtrack that I think won a few awards), but it is a really great film about 'The Kid' (Prince / O( take your pick) and the happenings around him living in Minneapolis, playing his music. The music is absolutely superb, in my opinion you HAVE to own this soundtrack, it is truly a classic and sums up the eighties sounds and feel in a wonderful fashion. And the movie itself plays out a nice plot, it's worth seeing over and over again, espeically if you like Prince / O (which I do) of course.
