Prince‘s 1985 live concert video Prince and the Revolution: Live is available to stream on YouTube, as part of the video platform and the Prince Estate’s Coronavirus relief efforts.

The live concert video is free to watch until May 17, however, YouTube and the Prince Estate strongly urge viewers to make donations to the World Health Organization’s COVID-19 Solitary Response Fund. For each $1 USD collected, Google will match $2 USD until $5 million USD is raised.

Clocking in at approximately two hours, Prince and the Revolution: Live was filmed on March 30, 1985 in Syracuse, New York in support of his album Purple Rain. The 20-song setlist features a number of Prince’s most beloved cuts, including “Little Red Corvette,” “1999” and “Delirious.” The show ends with an extended version of “Purple Rain,” including an extra 18 minutes filled with guitar solos.
