Trivia

  • This was planned on short notice and only advertised through word of mouth. So many people lingered outside the club the Police showed up to manage the crowd.
  • As it was a Tuesday night, club members and three guest could enter for free. Prince also played for free and made no money.
  • It was the venues initiative to ask local singer Curtiss A as a support act. He had also played the support slot for Prince on 9 March 1981 when First Avenue was still called Sam's.
  • Before the set the video for Let's Go Crazy was played on a video screen on stage.
  • During the opening song Prince recited the 'Gravy, Mashed potatoes, Cabbage "menu"' lyrics later used in Chocolate a few times.
  • During Baby I'm A Star, Prince added some lyrics of The Dance Electric (at the point where in the album version the backwards lyrics are heard). Towards the end of the long Baby I'm A Star jam, Prince added a guitar solo reminiscent of the solo in the extended version of America.
