Watch Prince Cover David Bowie, Bob Marley in Concert

Prince held back-to-back concerts in Toronto on Friday night that had him performing 57 songs in total, including a cover of David Bowie‘s 1977 hit “Heroes.”

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.
