Inside Prince’s last-ever show
It’s hard to believe that Prince Rogers Nelson is no longer with us, especially when you consider that just a week ago (April 14), he was on stage doing what he did better than anyone.
Prince’s final show at the Fox Theater in Atlanta was part of his recent “Piano and a Microphone” tour, which saw the 57-year-old strip classics such as “Little Red Corvette,” “Diamonds and Pearls” and, of course, “Purple Rain” down to the bare bones.
In addition to his own hits, the Purple One also threw in tender versions of Joni Mitchell’s “A Case of You” and paid tribute to another recently departed star by performing David Bowie’s “Heroes” — a number he had been doing regularly on the “Piano and a Microphone” tour.
The date had been previously postponed due to “flu,” but there were no outward signs of any symptoms laying the legend low on that night. It was a show that won rave reviews from fans and critics alike. Soul star Judith Hill tweeted that the show was “insanely inspiring,” and these fan-filmed clips from inside the Fox Theater attest to that.

Other fans described the show as “amazing” while another went as far as to say it was “the best concert ever.” As it tragically turned out, it was also the last Prince concert ever.
