Set List: Prince's Final Shows

by Paul Cashmere, Noise11

The Prince classic Purple Rain was his very last song in front of an audience.

Prince performed his last shows in Atlanta last week. They were more in his series of ‘Piano & A Microphone’ solo shows featuring Prince performing with a band.

At the early show, he also paid tribute to David Bowie who died in January at an earlier show in the evening. Prince performed Heroes for the second time at the first show that night. He had only performed the song once before on March 25 in Toronto.
