Act II Tour

1993

Being on tour is like being a travelling salesman; you got to show off what you got.

The Act II Tour was the European leg of Prince‘s preceding Act I Tour. This European leg showcased mainly his new songs1 that would later be included on Come and The Gold Experience, it focused more on his greatest hits. Unlike the more cautious Act I shows in the US, Act II Tour played 27 dates and much bigger venues, which included Prince’s first and only show at the legendary Wembley Stadium (31 July 1993).

Mayte began the shows being lowered onto the stage wearing Prince’s chain mask, as the opening song My Name Is Prince was being performed live with Prince out of sight, as she pulled off the mask Prince took to the stage. The European Act II tour was on a bigger scale than the US Act I, and was a highly successful production.

Due to high demand, Prince returned to London for the final date of the tour, and at the climax of that show ‘Prince’ was carried off stage feigning his death, for afterwards he would become The Artist Formally Known As Prince – the unpronounceable glyph naming also the album ( Prince love symbol) which the Act I Tour had supported.
