Ticket to Prince’s First Concert, 1979
The word on the street was that Minneapolis music prodigy Prince Rogers Nelson could have held his first concert as a national recording act (his first album, “For You,” had just been released) at New York’s Madison Square Garden. Instead, he chose to put on a show for about 300 people at the old Capri Theater in North Minneapolis on January 5, 1979. And what a show it was. Minneapolis Star music critic Jon Bream wrote that Prince “strutted across the stage with grand Mick Jagger-like moves and gestures. He was cool, he was cocky, and he was sexy.” Sound familiar?
