Prince did a really short show for a Prince show in Brisbane last night but again it was completely different to the previous four concerts in Australia so far.
Brisbane heard ‘Empty Room’ from ‘The Vault’ (2003) for the first time on this tour but Prince chopped off around 30 minutes of music compared to the previous Sydney and Melbourne shows.
It was all over by 10:30pm, the earlier end to a Prince gig so far.
Here is what Brisbane dished up in Brisbane before he headed off to the Hi-Fi for his second after show on the Welcome2Australia tour.
