He did no such thing. It's in every setlist from 1983's second half that I could find on princevault.com.

You misread something somewhere. During the first leg of the tour he ended up dropping it from it from the set after playing it a few times early on. It was back after the break for the second leg.

Prince always seemed to have a love/hate with doing LRC live.

By the Purple Rain tour, he's already halved it's length, and by Parade, he dropped it from the main set completely. For SOTT, it acted as a teaser only, and the start of the 'so many hits, so little time' approach.

It vanished for most of the tours for the next 20 years, but he seemed to fall back in love with in the 10's when he reworked it with great effect.

The same could be said for When Doves Cry. Both were very unrepresented live for many years, considering the scale of the 'hits'.

I.e.: OP is stating falsehoods and was too lazy to verify their idea of past reality.

If we define 'second leg' as the 1983 shows of the 1999 tour, then princevault does not have setlists for all of these shows.

But the ones that are there do show LRC.

Man just because you have some problems in your life don't mean you need to bring accusations.

Little Red Corvette during the first leg of the tour and it didnt reapear until the second leg.

Why don't I?

Your problems aren't my business and vice versa.

Why bring these irrelevant things up?

Did you check princevault?

Please be a little more specific.

.

Perhaps he did not drop it, but introduced it during the tour.

.

We must see an appearance of LRC and then an absence to be able to draw your conclusion.

.

Furthermore, did you really check? Think?

Would the release date of the LRC single be relevant to your 'discovery'?

OK, cool it.

The bottom line is that no one here knows the actual answer to anything regarding setlist changes during the 1999 tour.

If you really want to know, I'd suggest connecting with one or more of the Revolution on social media and ask them. I'm sure anyone in the band would be happy to answer your question if they can but as we all know, Prince very likely might not have told them why he changed the setlist at any particular time.

Well in that case if he was playing it earlier and dropped it the answer is because it wasn't a hit or a single yet so he had no obligation to play it. He had a whole double album of new tracks to choose from!

Maybe this is the correct answer.Prince did play LRC in the first leg but eventually he dropped it until the second leg.i dont think Prince vault is a holy bible when it comes to Prince.u have much better info in Funk Bible and Princerecords

not all dates have setlists in PrinceVault.

So is this the big 'drop'of LRC from the setlists?

Three weeks or so at most.

I.e.: much brouha about nothing.

PliablyPurple

According to Tudahl, it was played "sporadically" during the first leg and removed completely by early December. When it was released as a single, it was back. Second leg began @ the beginning of February and LRC was released February 9th,according to Tudahl (pg.29).

I like that he played it late in his career, like he found some peace with the song, recognizing how important it was to his career, quite possibly the most important song of his career. Its popularity turned him into a mainstream star and set the stage for what would happen with Purple Rain, which would catapult P even higher, as you know smile.
