The Prince estate has shared a remixed and remastered live version of his hit ‘1999’ from Prince and The Revolution’s historic tour stop at Carrier Dome in Syracuse, New York during 1985’s ‘Purple Rain’ tour. The adrenaline-fueled cut previews the upcoming release of the entire concert – considered one of the best in Prince’s performing history.

On March 30th, 1985, when the show originally took place, it was broadcast around the globe via satellite and later released as a live album. On June 3, an “entirely enhanced and reconstructed” of Prince and the Revolution: Live is set to arrive. 

In the footage below, Prince proves, with ease, what made him one of the most talented artists of our times, mastering a litany of genres – rock, pop, R&B and funk – and ending on a guitar god solo, as he delivers an extended version of the hit single from his 1982 LP of the same name.

Recently, rare footage from 1970 of an 11-year-old Prince being interviewed on TV news was accidentally unearthed by Minneapolis television station WCCO by production manager Matt Liddy, while scouring the archives footage of a teachers' strike that had occurred that year.  

Liddy stumbled upon footage of the baby-faced icon throwing his support behind the teachers, saying: “I think they should get a better education too cause, um, and I think they should get some more money cause they work, they be working extra hours for us and all that stuff.” he says. Check it out below.
