“He sang in his raspy midrange and piping falsetto, danced with liquid ease, and played ornate moody guitar solos as though thinking aloud through the instrument.” – The Globe and Mail.

“…continuously wowed for three hours by the undiminished vitality of the man’s stage presence, and indeed of the whole, mesmerizing Prince thing, 30-odd years into his singular and uncompromising career.” –
