Dirty Mind Tour


You can’t take his music seriously.

At the personal invitation of Mick Jagger Prince played as the support act for The Rolling Stones, for which he performed as the last two shows of the Dirty Mind Tour, but it was at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum show on 11 October 1981 he was famously booed off stage after playing just two songs, and again on the 12th – the commotion of the incident being later recalled in the song Pop Life in 1985. It was also during the Dirty Mind Tour that Prince had his first European appearances (the Paridisco Club in Amsterdam, 29 May 1981, London’s Lyceum on June 2nd, and the Theatre Le Palace in Paris on the 3rd). André Cymone would leave the band upon the conclusion of the tour.
