Sign O’ the Times (15)

Outdoor Cinema 2024

Prince sets the stage alight in this electrifying film of his 1987 tour, quite simply one of the best concert movies ever made.

Prince and his band bring his Grammy-nominated album Sign O’ the Times to life, capturing Prince at the peak of his musical powers. In front of a crowd at the Rotterdam Music Hall, Prince’s breathtaking set is complemented by the talents of drummer Sheila E., saxophonist Eric Leeds and trumpeter Atlanta Bliss.

Over 35 years later, it’s still a dazzling experience, featuring immaculate performances of songs from arguably his greatest album, including 'I Could Never Take the Place of Your Man', 'If I Was Your Girlfriend' and, of course, the haunting title number. So come and see this rare screening of this exhilarating film and party with Prince once again. You know it’s gonna be a beautiful night...

‘For years difficult if not impossible to find, the 1987 concert feature is an exhilarating 84 mins of Prince’s unabated genius. Sign O’ the Times is as much a masterpiece on film as it is on record.‘
