Image was a large part of what made Prince, Prince, and as such he took his stage shows as seriously as he did everything else. At the same time, nothing mattered more than the music. And during tours—sometimes even on the same night as big shows—he’d move the party to a smaller venue and just play and play and play. There is an entire genre of recordings dedicated to this. He never seemed to want to stop playing. He once took requests during a show he put on for video extras. He even played a three-hour show for the Minnesota Lynx at his estate after they won the WNBA title in 2015.
