Selling out all 4,500 tickets in ten minutes, Prince sang hits including "Purple Rain," "Nothing Compares 2 U," and the Beatles' "Come Together" during a two-hour performance. After the show at 3 A.M., the artist took to the stage again at a late-night jazz cafe for an impromptu jam session with his band. In both performances, Prince relied upon Shure UHF-R/SM58 wireless for vocals. For more information visit www.shure.com.
