Ladies and gentlemen, the Revolution. The Prince Estate has announced a very special event coming to YouTube this weekend. Prince and the Revolution: Live, the legendary (and long out of print) 1985 concert video from the Purple Rain tour will be streaming for free.

The three-day streaming special highlights the historic concert captured at the Carrier Dome in Syracuse, NY on March 30, 1985. Prince and the Revolution: Live showcases Prince and his iconic band at the peak of their Purple Rain Tour, and was the first live concert footage that Prince officially released as both a television broadcast and home video.

The Prince Estate and YouTube will host a watch party on Thursday, May 14, at 7 p.m. CDT. An hour before the watch party, at 6 p.m. CDT, fans will have the opportunity to participate in a special pre-stream Q&A with Revolution drummer Bobby Z.

Prince and the Revolution: Live will be available on Prince’s official YouTube Channel for three days only (through 11:59pm on Sunday, May 17). In collaboration with YouTube and Google, the streaming event will run in support of the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization (powered by UN Foundation and Swiss Philanthropy Foundation). Any viewer donations will include a matching component from Google (Google.org will match $2 for every $1 up to $5M). Get more details here.
