- This was the first show of the Live Out Loud Tour, announced on 20 March 2013.
- Tickets for this – and all (West Coast) shows of the tour – went on sale 22 March 2013 at 12:00 p.m. PST. As of Saturday 13 April, the unsold tickets were offered 50% off, with a purchase of two. Disgruntled patrons who bought tickets early at full price were also set up with an extra ticket for free. Both early shows (15 and 16 April) sold out eventually, but the late shows did not. In a last attempt to get the show sold out Prince donated 200 tickets (2 x 100 for both late shows) to charity. They were given to Portside Pub owner Mark Brand to sell via his restaurant Save-On-Meats and sold at $50 on Monday 15 April, with the proceeds going to charity.
- This show featured the live premieres of The Breakdown, 2 Y. 2 D. and Fixurlifeup, as well as the first time Boom and Stratus were played live as a medley (known as BoomStratus) and the first performance of a radically-revised version of Let's Go Crazy, featuring an interpolation of Frankenstein.
