Prince Plays Baltimore, Check Out The Setlist

by Roger Wink, VVN Music on May 12, 2015

Prince played his Rally 4 Peace benefit concert on Sunday afternoon at Royal Farm Arena in Baltimore, keeping the crowd enraptured with hit-after-hit.

The artist has been known, most recently, to concentrate on newer material in his shows, leaving out many of his biggest hits, but Sunday was an exception, a BIG exception, as the much of the concert covered his top ten catalog.

Still, for an artist that has been recording for 37 years, a few were missed including Delerious, I Could Never Take the Place of Your Man, Thieves in the Temple, Cream, 7 and the one chart topping tune you’ll never hear at a Prince concert, Batdance.

The set list:
