Act I Tour

1993

Y’all make me sorry I stayed away so long!

The Act I Tour was the name given to leg one of a wider world tour to promote Prince‘s Love Symbol Album. It was followed by the European leg of the tour, of course named Act II.

The Act I Tour marked Prince’s first full scale of tour in the USA since 1988’s Lovesexy Tour. Since 1986 Prince had been enjoying better success in Europe, where he had a string of albums sell better there than at home, and because of his confidence on dwindling home audiences Act I performed 25 dates, to small and medium sized venues. The Act I Tour was documented for posterity in Prince’s first publication – the photo book The Sacrifice Of Victor.

The two legs were essentially different tours, for they marked Prince’s transition from the New Power Generation, to solo act again. The NPG’s Tony Mosley, Kirky Johnson, Damon Dickson appearances in Act I were dropped for Act II, and whereas Act I focused on tracks from the Love Symbol Album, Act II centered on Prince’s greatest hits.
