The Revolution’s Dr Fink and Bobby Z on playing with Prince: “The music was his only real form of communication"
The Revolution will not be televised? Try telling that to Prince and his band as they took to the stage on 30 March 1985 at the Carrier Dome in Syracuse, New York. Far more than just another stop on the juggernaut that was the Purple Rain tour, for which more than 1.7 million tickets are said to have been sold, the show was also being broadcast live across Europe via satellite - no mean feat in those days - later to be released on video. In short, this gig mattered.
