Trivia

  • Tickets for this show go on sale on Monday 29 August 1988 and initially are only sold in the Netherlands. After approximately two-thirds are gone the rest is sold in Germany.
  • As Prince wanted to televise this concert and felt the Dutch audience were most enthusiastic and responsive, he asked for tickets for this show to be sold primarily in the Netherlands. The initially idea was to stage an extra concert in the Netherlands, but a suitable indoor venue that could support the enormous rig suspended above stage for an in the round set up was not available, so the production was moved to Dortmund instead.
  • This concert was broadcast live or semi- live throughout Europe and several countries around the world. It was later also released on home video (VHS) in two volumes Lovesexy Live 1 & Lovesexy Live 2, with volume 2 oddly containing the first half of the show and volume 1 the second. It was also released on laserdisc in Japan.
