Classic Albums Live Presents Prince: Purple Rain
- The concept: ace musicians recreating a classic-rock album note-for-note
- How they do it: using the exact instrumentation used on the original recordings
- The daunting album that Classic Albums Live pulls off valiantly: Prince’s 1984 wall-to-wall classic, Purple Rain
- Just some of the Purple Rain challenges: the guitar solo at the end of Let’s Go Crazy, the guitar solo at the beginning, middle, and end of When Doves Cry, crawling out of a bathtub in slow motion
The Lakeland Center
It’s almost easier to count who hasn’t played at the Lakeland Center than who has. Since the all-purpose venue opened in 1974, its many halls have seen such stars as Johnny Cash, Frank Sinatra, Jerry Seinfeld, Prince, Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan, and Kathy Gifford. Besides the top-tier lineup of music and comedy acts, The Lakeland Center also hosts theatrical productions, conventions and festivals, and seasonal ice skating for all ages.
