Show 2 in Sydney went a lot deeper into the Prince catalogue than the hit laced first night.

‘How Come U Don’t Call Me Anymore’, the b-side of the 1984 single ‘1999’ made the show as did ‘Days of Wild’ from the rare Crystal Ball album.

Prince once again played homage to Michael Jackson with his cover of ‘Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough’.

A lot of the hits returned from the night before including ‘Cream’, ‘Raspberry Beret’, ‘Purple Rain’, ‘Kiss’, ‘Controversy’, ‘When Doves Cry’ and ‘Sign O The Times’.
