Watch Prince Cover David Bowie, Bob Marley in Concert
He also covered Bill Withers, Joni Mitchell and the 'Peanuts' theme in back-to-back shows.
The Purple One’s Piano & A Microphone Tour shows also included his own takes on Bob Marley and the Wailers’ “Waiting in Vain,” Bill Withers’ “Use Me,” Vince Guaraldi’s Peanuts theme “Linus and Lucy” and Joni Mitchell’s “A Case of You.” Of course there were plenty of his own songs in the sets as well, such as staples “Purple Rain” and “Starfish and Coffee.”
Prince’s full set lists from both shows, including five encores in all, are posted at Consequence of Sound. Watch some fan-shot videos below.
