Sign O’ The Times (movie)

Palace Pictures / MCA

Prince at his most dazzling

Largely comprised of concert footage of the Sign O’ The Times Tour filmed over three shows Prince performed at the Sportpaleis Ahoy in Rotterdam, The Netherlands on 26, 27, 28 June 1987. The concept arose out of a last minute request by Prince, partly due to the bad weather that had plagued the tour and wanting the tour preserved for posterity. Prince spent the summer of 1987 editing this footage and shooting additional scenes which were spliced into live show recordings to add a storyline and turn it into a movie. These extra scenes were filmed at Prince’s newly completed Paisley Park Studios which has only just opened that September.

The Sign O’ The Times movie was premiered in Detroit on 29 October 1987 and in November released to 250 theatres across the USA, grossing $3m. It was released on VHS on 5 May 1988. It is certified Platinum by the RIAA and is hailed as one of the greatest concert movies ever made.
