Dearly beloved /
We are gathered here today /
2 get through this thing called life

Join us on May 15 as we celebrate the life and music of one of pop music’s most transcendent and influential artists with a stunning 35mm print of Prince’s concert film SIGN O’ THE TIMES!

Sexy as hell and containing more face-melting solos than you will be able to handle, the 1987 concert film – featuring the music from the album of the same name – is nearly impossible to see. A copy of SIGN O’ THE TIMES on Amazon is currently $460.

Upon release, Robert Christgau of The Village Voice said that the Sign o’ the Times record is "the most gifted pop musician of his generation proving what a motherfucker he is for two discs start to finish” — a fitting description for the eclectic 1987 record often ranked amongst the greatest albums of all time. He had equal enthusiasm for the film, considering it a worthy challenger to STOP MAKING SENSE for the title of greatest rock concert film ever made.

The film also features the ridiculously stacked band that accompanied Prince on his 1987 Sign o' the Times Tour, including drummer Sheila E. and The Revolution’s keyboardist Dr. Fink.
