First time Prince performed 'Purple Rain' - Live

The artist known as Prince Rogers Nelson has a musical legacy that
most artists can only dream of. His most famous song is undoubtedly
“Purple Rain” — also the name of his semi-biographical 1984 feature film and its accompanying soundtrack — which
helped Prince earn mainstream success and worldwide fame.
However, the first time that the Purple Rain track list was performed was
nearly a year before the film or album were produced, at a benefit concert for
the Minnesota Dance Theatre at the legendary First Avenue (where Prince also filmed scenes for the movie.)
