- On July 3rd, 2009, a poster was issued on the [Montreux festival] website to promote both concerts.
- On July 15th, 2009, a newly recorded version of In A Large Room With No Light was streamed exclusively on the [Montreux festival] website.
- The music played on PA before the concert was one of Ana Moura's album.
- The setting itself was very minimal, as described by Claude Nobs when he announced Prince would bring a "cuisine de campagne": the two disco jellyfishes as seen on Tonight Show in March, as well as the circular screen featured on the Ellen TV show on 2 April 2009 were set up. To complete that, two discotheque balls provided light effects (notably on Somewhere Here On Earth), one above the stage, another one, bigger, at the center of general admission floor. Metallic sculptures by artist were discovered by Prince two nights prior in club MAD, in Lausanne, where Prince went clubbing. Prince requested to borrow some of Zapoff's motorcycle sculptures to be feature on the stage. One was located left of Rhonda Smith, on the right side of the stage. It was later removed to make place for Morris Hayes keyboard set. Another one was in front of Renato Neto set up.
- Five cameras were filming the show: on the right of the stage was a so called Luma, providing moving shots, behind the console, fixed on the middle of the balcony was one providing a wide overall view of the stage. That was completed by two tripod mounted cameras used for close ups, on each side of Prince's mic stand. And a mobile shoulder carried camera operated on stage. A total of 6 mics were placed over the audience to tape their response.
- On two big screens, one on each side of the room, live images from the 5 cameras were provided.
- Prince's red Fender Stratocaster was the only guitar used for the performance.
- Prince's outfit, which he unusually did not change during or between the two shows, until he encores of show 2) was similar to the poster promoting the Montreux concerts, in red instead of purple, completed with similar colored platform heels.
- The musicians were positioned in a similar way to how they were for Ellen: Renato Neto on the left, then John Blackwell drum set, right of that, a little left of the middle. On the other side was Rhonda Smith, and opposite side of Renato Neto was Morris Hayes' rig.
- After the concert, Claude Nobs went on stage for a salute and to distribute a few Prince/Montreux t-shirts.
- Cornell West and Tavis Smiley were spotted in the audience, seated front row in the balcony.
