In the 1980s, few things were as sexy, revolutionary, or purple as the royal artist known as Prince. Even after a decades-long career, introducing us to Carmen Electra and Sheila E, and delivering various platinum-selling albums, he remains an enigma we may never understand. Forget all the weird name changes and bizarre television interviews, the man is a pop culture legend; he’s given us Purple Rain, a killer Batman soundtrack, and some of the hottest music videos of the late ‘80s even Madonna couldn’t touch. For two nights at the Grove of Anaheim, he grants thirsty Orange County audiences a rendezvous with his classic funky New Wave jams, along with newer material that isn't as readily available on the Internet. Backed by multi-talented girl band 3RDEYEGIRL, Prince is gonna (dare we say) make you party like it’s 1999.
