Prince at the Montreux Jazz Festival.Prince may have refused to allow any photographs or filming during his Montreux Jazz Festival performance on Monday, July 16, but the ban was lifted in the dark hours of the next morning at an all-night jazz cafe, where the Purple One jammed unannounced with his band.

The Montreux Jazz Festival's Stravinski Auditorium was bathed in purple light for a surprise appearance by Prince on July 16th. 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.
