PURPLE RAIN: THE NIGHT A LEGEND WAS BORN



This is a legend in the making. In 1983 Prince played a benefit for the Minnesota Dance Theater Company, and that show featured the first live performance with Wendy Melvoin in The Revolution. That would be historic enough, but this show was also the very first time the band performed Purple Rain in public. At First Avenue of all places.

This is ground zero.
