The Prince Estate, in Partnership with Legacy Recordings, Announces Completely
Remastered and Digitally Enhanced Release of Prince and The Revolution: Live

Prince and The Revolution’s Historic Purple Rain Tour Performance in Syracuse, NY
Available on CD, Vinyl, and Blu-ray For the Very First Time
James Brown had the Apollo. Jimi Hendrix had Monterey Pop. And Prince had Syracuse, New York’s Carrier Dome—the March 30, 1985 Purple Rain Tour stop that was beamed to millions live via satellite and captured for posterity in the Grammy Award-nominated concert film Prince and The Revolution: Live, and which has since gone down in history as one of the most iconic live recordings in pop and rock history.

For the first time, this powerful performance by Prince and The Revolution has been remixed from the original 2” multitrack master reels and the film has been digitally enhanced onto Blu-ray video with selectable stereo, 5.1 surround and Dolby Atmos sound. Prince’s late-career and Grammy-nominated recording engineer, Chris James, remixed the recently discovered source audio, which had remained archived in Prince’s legendary Paisley Park vault for over three decades. The new release of Prince and The Revolution: Live will be available June 3, 2022, and marks the first time that the concert will be available on vinyl (as a 3-LP set) and on CD (as a 2-CD/Blu-ray set).

In conjunction with the physical formats, Prince and The Revolution: Live is also the first Prince release to be made available to supporting digital streaming platforms in spatial audio, as it will be delivered in Dolby Atmos.

Additionally, a limited run Collector’s Edition of the iconic performance will be available exclusively from the official Prince Store. Housed in a luxe foil box, the set includes the remixed and remastered audio pressed onto 3 colored LPs (purple, red and gold vinyl), 2 CDs, the Blu-ray video, an expansive 44-page book complete with never-before-seen photos of the Purple Rain Tour, new liner notes highlighting stories and memories from all five members of The Revolution, and a limited run 24 x 36 poster. The Collector’s Edition was designed by Grammy-nominated artist Mathieu Bitton and Grammy-nominated creative director and Prince associate Trevor Guy.

sad anniversary of his untimely passing. I suppose if I could do one thing via time travel it would be eliminate fentanyl and reap the benefit of keeping the lives lost on this planet. If only that genie had been kept in a bottle.

Prince's PURPLE RAIN Celebrated with Dolby Atmos Mix

The new ATMOS presentation of Purple Rain has been meticulously mixed from the original multi-track master tapes by former Prince engineer and award-winning ATMOS engineer Chris James. It is available now via all participating Digital Service Providers on June 21, with an audiophile Blu-ray to be released later in 2024.

“As we begin what will be a year-long celebration of the 40th anniversary of Purple Rain, we are thrilled to present Prince’s masterpiece in ATMOS, providing an immersive, surround auditory experience of Prince’s legendary album. This highly crafted release will present Prince’s iconic work with a greater sense of space and depth while preserving the beautiful songs that have shaped pop culture and touched the lives of countless fans around the world.”

- Paisley Park Enterprises

As part of the festivities honoring Purple Rain's 40th anniversary, Paisley Park Enterprises will also welcome Prince fans to Celebration 2024 at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, MN, from Thursday, June 20 - Monday, June 24. The annual event will feature live concert performances by The Revolution, Morris Day, the New Power Generation, and other special guests. The event will also provide the first sneak-peek preview of the Purple Rain musical, currently in development and production.

Warner Bros. Discovery will reissue a newly restored 4K version of the Purple Rain motion picture on June 25, with a limited theatrical run scheduled to start on July 3. June 25 will also see a special 4K screening of the movie at the Toronto International Film Festival, featuring a virtual Q&A with Susan Rogers, Prince’s longtime sound engineer.

In addition to these Purple Rain reissues, Prince’s catalog is also now available in full on Snapchat and other social media for the next generation of Prince fans to engage, discover and enjoy.

I love Prince and I love the Purple Rain soundtrack. But that movie is problematic in 2024.
I imagine there will be some wholesale changes in the Broadway musical

Other than the acting and not being a good movie why is Purple Rain problematic??

I wonder when or will there ever be remastered and deluxe versions of Controversy, Around the World in a Day, and Dirty Mind?

The hero beats up his girlfriend, perpetuating a cycle of abuse inflicted on him, doesn't he?

I always thought of him as an anti-hero in that movie. He's pretty much a self-obsessed asshole throughout and that isn't shied away from.

Can we not have flawed main characters based on realism anymore?

It was a different time and I bet Prince would feel bad about that now if he was still around and would have changed his views.
