Throwback Thursday

Throwback Thursday! Prince - When Doves Cry

On November 4th, 1984 Prince played the first of seven nights at the Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, Michigan at the start of his legendary 87 date North American Purple Rain Tour. The outing also marked the debut of his new band, The Revolution. So our Throwback Thursday song is arguably one of the biggest from Purple Rain, "When Doves Cry."
