Nude Tour

1990

Prince took away all doubts concerning his place in the forefront of pop music in the 90’s.

The Nude Tour was largely a ‘greatest hits’ tour despite it straddling two album releases, Prince performed only few songs from either. It is called the Nude Tour due to its stripped back production – curbing the excessive costs of the previous Lovesexy and Sign O’ The Times tours, and the setlist too focused on the popular and livelier songs of his back catalogue to appeal to a younger audience. The Nude Tour did not visit the USA, it instead became Prince’s most extensive visit to Europe – playing 50 dates there (of which 15 were played at London’s Wembley Arena). With the exception of Miko Weaver all the members of the band would in the wake of the tour form the New Power Generation.
