Watch: Rare Video Of The First Performance Of Purple Rain

posted by Heather Burnside - 

I've been watching a ton of Prince videos lately, but none more moving than this rare footage of "Purple Rain" live in '83 at First Avenue in Minneapolis. It's the first ever live performance and was the raw recording used on the album and in the movie.

First Ever Performance of Purple Rain!

Insanely rare video of the now iconic ballad "Purple Rain" live in 1983 at First Avenue in Minneapolis. This is the first time the song Purple Rain was ever performed live and this performance was the bare bones used on the album and in the movie.
