You know a concert is good when tears spontaneously roll down your cheeks during the first song.
Prince Rogers Nelson bought me to tears with his first song of his first EVER concert in Auckland. An intimate gathering of 2200 people in the Aotea Centre.
Playing a seemingly never ending medley, hit after hit seamlessly morphed into hit as Prince pounded the keys if the grand piano into submission.
He danced and played, he growled and played, he crooned. And the crowed loved every second of it.
During Cream Prince gave us the advice to sing the lyrics into the mirror:
“Ur so good,baby there ain’t nobody better. Ur so cool, everything you do is success”
He said we need to look in the mirror when we feel low and say them to ourselves. I love this idea! Prince, the lyricist is giving us permission to empower ourselves with his lyrics!count me in.
It was halfway through the concert that I noticed his fantastic shoes with light up soles. Where can I get some!?
Coming back for encore after encore with hits like Raspberry Beret and Starfish and Coffee.
I’m a huge fan and just having him perform I little ol’ New Zealand was a major thrill. Getting tickets was the icing on the cake and being there was something I’ll never forget.
Thank you Prince. Thank you for sharing your talent with the world.
