One Nite Alone… Tour


For those of you who expected to get your Purple Rain on, you’re in the wrong house.

The One Nite Alone… Tour was a series of jazz inspired shows, named after the One Nite Alone… album. The shows were a surprise success considering the poor sales of that and The Rainbow Children albums it was promoting and Prince’s recent stall in popularity; hence it played only in theatres but sold out as a result. Prince allowed members of the NPG Music Club to attend its sound checks and have the opportunity to ask him questions and meet the band, nightly one audience member would be invited watch the performance while sat on a beanbag on the stage – and so this tour is fondly remembered as a fan favorite. Furthermore, because of its intimacy, casualness and creative diversity, this is widely deemed as his benchmark tour. For this reason the One Nite Alone… Tour was subsequently released as Prince’s first ever live album One Nite Alone… Live.

Following the the Northern American stage of the tour begun a series of concerts held at Paisley Park Studios called Xenophobia Celebration which fans paid $250 to be able to attend all its shows throughout the week of 21 to 28 June 2002.
