the sky was all purple...

I know it's been a long time between posts and my blog absense all started when a certain Prince came to town!

I have been a HUGE Prince fan for over 20 years since I discovered his music back in high school and was more than excited to hear that he was coming back to Australia and as a result I spent most of May in a purple haze!
Prince has always had a reputation for putting on an awesome live show and OMG he sure delivered on the night and rocked the crowd with a string of his greatest hits that had the packed arena 'delirious' for over 3 hrs while Prince did his thing on his famous O(+> Symbol stage!

It was awesome to hear Prince perform favourites like Raspberry Beret and 1999 and I loved that everyone went a little nuts when we heard the familiar opening "dearly beloved...." of Let's Go Crazy and the atmosphere was incredible with the whole crowd singing Ooh-hoo-hoo-hoo under a confetti filled sky of Purple Rain :)

I think my favourites of the night were the When Doves Cry, Hot Thing & Sign 'O' The Times sampler where Prince funked things out on a synth disguised as a fabulous purple piano!

and I have to say I've never danced, sang and screamed so much in my life....well not until the following week because can you believe that I WON 2 PURPLE RESERVE TICKETS for the final Sydney show thanks to the fabulous people over at Prince Welcome 2 Australia Tour where I had been hanging out along with over 10 thousand other purple minded people during the tour ;)
Prince was even more amazing the second time round and I have to admit that I totally lost it during his ''slow down'' version or Little Red Corvette (my favourite song of all) and teared up during the beautiful 'Sometimes it Snows in April' all before being treated to the most awesome encores after half the people had already left the arena because they thought it was over... the crowd that stayed behind packed tightly around the stage as our "Little Prince" shared even more of his amazing talent!

Here's a few pics I managed to sneak in during the shows...

and this was me in my Purple Rain tee ready to go to the first concert
I also won this awesome cd/dvd pack along with a tour poster

Sigh* I hope it's not another 10 year wait for Prince to come back again ♥

Hey Purple Agnus, this is my first time to your Blog. This is a bit like 'weird science' to me as I don't have a Blog. I am just finally at ease with Timeline on I hope to one day do what you are doing. I love the Prince dedication you have created and it brings it all back to me, the tour and the hype. How do you find the time to scrap, blog and facebook?! Is this an easy setup you are on to do your Blogs? It looks neat. Love your work! Larissa Anderson

Thanks for the info on the date of the poster. Could you post a clear picture of it for me by chance??
I collect this type of Prince poster and would like to at least add the picture of it for my "want list" computer file.
