Prince in the Netherlands
Prince performed regularly in the Netherlands during his musical career, which lasted over forty years, building an increasingly large fan base during gigs at Dutch concert venues Ahoy (1986) and De Kuip (1988). Tour gear such as posters, photographs and merchandise from these and other concerts have been collected intensively over the years. Almost all the objects displayed in the exhibition are from collections belonging to his most loyal fans. Videos of interviews with well-known and unknown people who worked with Prince (including Lois Lane) will also be shown. Fans, too, will have the opportunity to talk about their favourite songs and most special Prince memories. The love felt for Prince is clearly apparent in the special items that make up this small-scale, personal exhibition created with, for and by his fans.
Prince LOVE LIVE is a collaboration with a group of Dutch Prince enthusiasts who have been following Prince since the 1980s. Their friendship grew as a result of their shared passion for Prince’s music and for Prince as a person.
