“Piano & a Microphone” — Prince’s Poignant, Career-Spanning Final Concert [♬]

On April 14th, Prince performed two intimate final concerts at Atlanta’s Fox Theatre – days before his death at age 57. The shows, part of his “Piano & a Microphone” tour, spanned Prince’s discography and incorporated a slew of covers (including David Bowie’s “Heroes” and Joni Mitchell’s “A Case of You”). Great audience too. I love how they yell out their love for him between songs. A full recording of the second concert is available to stream via Soundcloud — Prince Live at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta – The FINAL SHOW:
