Trivia

  • Tickets for this show went on sale 3 June 1986 and sold out within 20 minutes. An extra show at the 4,500 capacity Masonic Temple Auditorium was announced the next day for 6 June 1986.
  • This show was filmed and an hour-long concert film was produced, Parade Live, which was broadcast in Japan and several European countries later in 1986.
  • Earlier in the day, Prince placed an unexpected call to Charles Johnson, also known as The Electrifying Mojo, a Detroit disc-jockey at WHYT who is credited with introducing Prince's music to the Detroit airwaves. In a 15-minute interview, Prince paid tribute to his Detroit followers and told Johnson about the upcoming Under The Cherry Moon film. He also talked about his motives for making music and revealed that he had 320 finished unreleased songs in the vault.
