Prince has announced he’ll showcase an unprecedented eight minute long performance on the SNL stage next month. It’ll be the first television performance from Prince since the release of his two chart-topping albums, Art Official Age and Plectrumelectrum, on September 30th and is not only going to be live, it will make history!
In the 40-year history of SNL, most performances have been broken up into two segments – often with one at midnight and one just before the 90-minute classic sketch comedy show ends. But Prince, known for his spontaneous and electrifying three-hour concerts in venues both massive and intimate, will perform his set in the middle of the show with no closing encore. It’s anyone guess what the songs will be, but undeniable that it will be an incendiary and history making performance.
The music icon’s return to the SNL stage will be on November 1st. Don’t miss it!
