Prince looks like he is having a mid life crisis. He looks terrible!! I like the stripped down band and rock direction but that performance was not good. They need practice

You are right about the ending of Bambi, it really rocks. Still don't like the beginning, you shouldn't be bothered by that cause I love lots of other songs from Prince.. so

Also, I would like to add both Screwdriver and Bambi both TOTALLY ROCKED and Prince's voice on Bambi was spot on. The roll in his voice-- Loved It!!!! The ending is as they say pure Rock N Roll and we like it!!!!! :)

Trudy June - it is rude to even point it out - but please check when Bambi was written before writing such a thing ;-) Though - to be fair - you will have amused *a lot* of Prince fans with that comment.

Brilliant, blistering performance. Raw, incendiary and energetic - loved it.

Bambi is such a legendary rocker!!! Glad he performed it. It alway sounds great when he performs it with a small band (Saw a video of him performing it back in the early 90's with sonny t and Michael Bland) Any musician wanting to enter the game now should study people like Prince. So much to learn from people like him, raphel saadiq, lenny kravitz and frank mccomb. Musical skills is sadly lacking from the majority of today's performers. All they have is a desire to be famous. Dez dickerson once said that he had a desire to see Prince rock out with a small rock band. Well, there you have it! Great performance.

Funk That! Awesome. Where has this Prince been hiding the last 10 years? Smallest Prince backing band ever? Love the attitude the girls are bringing to the songs. Moar of this please Prince.

Urgh, I'm getting so tired of this availability thing, now the video's can only be streamed within the US, what's up with that?!?

Thrashing, bashing, and wailing is not music. Noise is the correct nomenclature to assign.

I'm sorry, I didn.t watched the ending, I thought screwdriver was cool, but that song (is it Bambi ?) with the high womanish tone, was to much for me. Little Broh, I want songs as good as the eighties, so screwdriver is good and so are a lot of Prince songs, but please .................no more of this Bambi song Sorry, Trudy from Leiden (Still wanna see your shows like in Rome)

The performance rocked and I loved the ending where it seemed clear to me that Jimmy Fallon sort of wanted the noise to stop, but didn't really dare mess with it because it was genuine Prince noise hehe :)

This was an amazing performance! I hadn't had a chance to turn up the volume when listening to this the first time. You really need to hear it loud to get the full effect. Donna's solo was unbelievably great! Hanna & Ida rocked the house! Prince, electrifying as usual! Thank you for the post Doc! I appreciate all you do here.

Amazing. Start to finish. Really nailed it. Exactly what I was hoping he would do - show a younger generation a living legend who is still doing stuff. Love the lighting, too...really reminds me of the older videos. I wonder if Questlove had anything to do with that? If so, beautiful. If not, still...

Prince never fails to surprise. I absolutely LOVE, Screwdriver!! Hair takes some getting used to but it's cool. I can't wait till it's longer. Prince is going back to younger freedom years without the tango and trench coach or plastic fantastic perfect. That's super! Actually think he could have dropped the jacket though in the performance so we could see the shirt and the good body :) A headband would also look super cool, not sure about the shades.....

Got to see the performances already, thanks Doc! Loved the hard rocking sound of Prince with the three girls! Screwdriver is great, Donna rocks, Bambi is an old favorite and still sounds fresh and raw! And I always love Prince's guitar solos more than anything else!! :) About the way he left the stage: staying true to wild rock musician image! LOL

We done got Billy Dee Williams with his 'fro on geetar, Princess Leia with her headband on da' bass, Trayvon in his hoodie on drums, and Ms. T with her incomplete mohawk and her hatchet. I thought he dropped his guitar versus trying to pull a Woodstock type performance. The Artist would never emulate anyone as he's an original. The James Marshall reference must be a mistake. At. least he ditched the shades that made him look like Seth Brundle. Die hard Formerly Artist fans will always love what he does no matter what. I feel it's a desperate attempt to regain youth. I will try to see his tour as this may be his last foray into the public eye ever.
