An intimate evening of Prince songs, stories and musings with reputed fringe artist Michael Wheatley. Michael has always had a close connection with Prince's music and art, from the first 7” single he bought in 1983, to later performing the lead role in the Australian Prince Show in the early 90s, to seeing Prince perform one of his very last shows ever in 2016. Through the music of Prince Michael explores the blurry lines between inspiration and imitation, the connection we feel we have with our idols and the grief we can feel at the loss of someone we’ve never even met.
For this special Sydney showing to celebrate Prince's birthday Michael will perform the 1 hour solo show then be followed by a special band set with Dirty Carpet Disco Band after for a Purple funk getdown.
“Highly entertaining, great value for money, Fringe talent at its best” 5 stars, Debbie Shearer, Sam About Town
“This is massively entertaining — anything featuring the songs of Prince is bound to be — but it’s also wryly funny and more than a little bit touching” - 4 Stars, Nathan Davies, The Advertiser, Adelaide Fringe Reviews.
“The cabaret versions of the songs are performed with passion and conviction. He does Prince justice...” - 4 stars, Anastasia Lambis - All About Entertainment, Arts Review.
