Prince And The Revolution: Live was the second Prince and the Revolution home video to be released and its first live concert released on Home Video format.

The footage comes from a live broadcast¹ of a Purple Rain Tour concert in Syracuse, on 30 March 1985 and lasts 116 minutes.

It was first released on 2 cassettes under the name of "Double Live" before being re-released as Prince And The Revolution: Live on one cassette and laserdisc.

¹ Several countries around the world, amongst them Germany (on TV program Rockpalast), broadcast the concert live. France TV channel Antenne 2 broadcast the concert a few days later.
