Montreal QC – Prince may be enigmatic at times as his 5 decade career in music unfolds, but boring is never a word connected to the diminutive master of the performance. He kicked off the Montreal Jazz Fest with a four hour set that included encore after encore at Metropolis.
He performed is old hits, some great covers; the audience just kept eating it all up. Reading reviews and talking to people who attended the gig all you could hear was joy; pure joy and considering the $150 + per ticket the crowd was well satisfied. It should be interesting to see if he can deliver it again Saturday.
He started his show at 11:30 pm and played until nearly 4 AM in the morning!
This was the second major act of the night as former Led Zep lead singer Robert Plant played Salle-Wilfred Pelletier.
The 32nd Annual Montreal Jazz Fest continues until July 4th with an amazingly diverse collection of talent from around the world. For more info click this LINK.
