Full Show Friday: Prince Live at The Ritz 1981

We search the murky back waters of youtube to find full concerts and post them to the site weekly, come back every seven days to help us celebrate Full Show Friday's. These shows are of varying quality and may not be here for long so enjoy them while you can...As always, please support the artist every which way, but especially by seeing them live (if they are still playing)...This week...Prince!

Occasionally for our Full Show Friday series RtBE decides to dedicate the month to certain topics like showcasing random years, say 1979,  or unique live venues, like CBGB's. Sometimes we combine both like Bonnaroo 2014. This month we are focusing on live shows from the historic NYC Venue Webster Hall aka The Ritz. Enjoy!

RtBE have enjoyed many a concert at the famed Webster Hall or as it was known in the 80's, The Ritz and a few weeks ago the club played host to it's last show for sometime as it will be undergoing a long renovation. To celebrate the illustrious venue we will be dedicating September's Full Show Friday's to the club, highlighting some amazing performances. 

We kick it off with The Purple One from 1981. Prince killing it at The Ritz with his funky amalgamation of rock, soul, R&B to go along with pure sexuality. The sound is crystal clear and while the video isn't perfect it is steady and watchable, full setlist is below. Enjoy!
