In front of a crowd at the Rotterdam Music Hall, Prince and his band perform 13 numbers, 11 of which are from his double album, "Sign 'o' the Times," and all but "Now's the Time" are his compositions. This is high energy stuff, with neon signs flashing above the stage, suggesting the honky-tonk district of a big city. Between a few of the numbers, there are vignettes of street life. Three women - Shiela E, Boni Boyer, and Cat - provide rhythmic, vocal, and physical pyrotechnics. Sheena Easton appears in a film within a film, her rock video "U Got the Look." In constant motion, never far from center stage, is Prince, Minnesota's charismatic pixy. Written by

Only a "bells and whistles" concert film - but still a dazzling Prince showcase.
Prince performs to his fans with the odd fantasy acting inserts.Directed by the main man himself.
The 1980's was a baron time for the creation of pop legends - so the arrival of Prince was extra welcome. While I am not really a massive buyer of his music, that doesn't mean that I am not a terrific admirer of his all-round talent.
Indeed his abilities in dancing, singing, guitar playing and song writing are world class - and maybe even that is an edited list! Talk about Mr. Talented! Has anybody ever brought together such stage talents in one (tiny) package? And what diversity of music: From rap to pop to metal, he can do it all AND he can do it all well. Even seems to be enjoying it too.
Not a bad taste employer either - some great support musicians, male and female. The man himself even seems happy to let them command the stage while he does something else - play the drums for example! Sure it can't really act and he is a bit weird - but we can't have it all. Having that much talent would drive all of us crazy one way or another.
So get the TV cranked up high, sit back and watch a legend performing in a decade that he more owned than influenced. There won't be another
so make the most of him.
