As a part of a rock guitarist All-Star team, Prince performed George Harrison’s classic “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” alongside Jeff Lynne, Steve Winwood, Tom Petty, and George’s son, Dhani.

To ring in the year 2000, Prince pulled out all the stops with a special New Year’s Eve concert that featured a duet performance of “American Woman” with Lenny Kravitz.

If you want to see what Prince sounded like in his pre-Revolution days, you can check out this complete concert filmed at the Capitol Theatre in New Jersey in 1982.

Prince’s career has been filled with mindblowing performances, but his Super Bowl XLI halftime show in 2007 defines his career. On a stage lit purple and during a torrential Miami downpour, Prince gave his greatest performance of “Purple Rain” … ever. Even diehard NFL fans remember this more than the beat down the Indianapolis Colts delivered the Chicago Bears.

Prince debuted a new backup band, 3rdeyegirl, in 2014, and they proved they were just as good as the Revolution and the Time when they performed “She’s Always In My Hair” on “The Arsenio Hall Show.”
