Saw Prince play with the Time in 2004 in Philly. Amazing show. Prince was a supremely talented artist. There was really no one like him.— Donald Biordi (@DonBiordi) April 21, 2016
Fastest $250 I've ever spent was when my coworker said he had an extra ticket to see Prince in Philly. Best concert I've even been to...— YugettyWap (@Honey_Shade) April 21, 2016
Listen, young people: I went to a Prince concert in Philly during the 80s. I'm sorry you will never know that joy.— KristinHeimark (@stokenewington) April 21, 2016
Prince was too good for this world, but I wish he could have stayed forever.— Brian P. Hickey (@BrianPHickey) April 21, 2016
Washing cars in a detail garage, south Philly, any morning in 1987, blasting Purple Rain, singing my heart out. Love u #Prince— Ed Glavin (@EdGlavin) April 21, 2016
