Rarely seen Prince concert film Sign o’ the Times to air on Showtime next month


Purple Films Company/SHOWTIMEThe rarely seen Prince concert movie Sign o’ the Times will get its first U.S. television screening in more than 10 years when its airs on Showtime next month.

The film, which was made to accompany the music legend’s 1987 double album of the same name, will premiere Saturday, September 16, at 9 p.m. ET/PT.  

The 84-minute flick includes performances shot at Prince’s Paisley Park Studios in Minnesota, as well as footage from shows in the Netherlands and Belgium.

Among the songs featured are live renditions of the Sign o’ the Times title track, as well as the then-recent singles “I Could Never Take the Place of Your Man” and “U Got the Look” — that last one was a duet with pop star Sheena Easton.  

The movie also includes a version of the 1983 Prince smash “Little Red Corvette.”

Sign o’ the Times captured Prince shortly after he broke up his backing group The Revolution, with whom he recorded his hit albums Purple RainAround the World in a Day and Parade.  

The band featured in Sign o’ the Times includes percussionist Sheila E.
