I’m so excited, Prince is coming to my hometown Bergen this year! October 18 and the funny part is that its only a few kilometers away. I hope I get the chance to go, its been so long since I last went to his concert. That was in 1988, the LoveSexy tour.
I was only 17 then, I remember a few buddies and I took the train to Oslo and Valle Hovin – it was an awesome concert. I especially remember when he entered the stage in a Corvette, and when he played Purple Rain the purple light colored the rain above us and made a great athmosphere.
I also remember that I fell in love with Sheila E., the drummer. 🙂
The return home was a nightmare though, we missed the train back and we didn’t have money to spend the night at a hotel. We tried to sleep at the train station but we were kicked out so we found a spot outside to sit through the night. Lets just say it wasn’t a nice experience.
Its kind of fun that he choose Bergen before Oslo. 🙂 Finally.
