A rarely seen Prince concert will get a proper airing on Showtime coming in September.
Reports from Rolling Stone, stated that the cable network has acquired the late music legend’s Sign o’ the Times concert documentary and will premiere it on Sept. 16 at 9PM
The concert film was originally shot as a companion piece to Prince’s 1987 landmark double album of the same name.
It was released in theaters in the late 1987 but wasn’t a box office hit. The film did get a VHS run but it was never released on DVD. For nearly 30 years, the movie has remained out of print.
The documentary was shot primarily at his own Paisley Park Studios and on tour in the Netherlands and Belgium. Prince performed several of his classic hits including the title track, “U Got the Look” (with Sheena Easton), “If I Was Your Girlfriend, “I Could Never Take the Place of Your Man” and a rendition of the fan-favorite classic, “Little Red Corvette.”
Fans will be able to see his bands at the time, both with the Revolution and the New Power Generation, along with drummer and singer Sheila E. No word if Prince’s Sign O’ Times concert documentary will get a DVD and/or digital release.
