The Last Iowa Appearances of Late Music Legends
The tributes and remembrances to Prince after his death last week continue. I never saw him perform live, but many in Cedar Rapids did when, in 1997 he played at the Five Seasons Center--now known as the U.S. Cellular Center. It was his last appearance in our city and according to this republished review from The Gazette, he even treated fans to an after-party appearance at Confetti's, a popular nightclub in town at the time.
It looks like it was quite a setlist for the show too.
Were you there in 1997? Give us your memories in the comment section. If you remember your last time seeing any other artists we've lost this year--Glenn Frey/The Eagles, Natalie Cole, David Bowie, or just this past weekend, Billy Paul, in Iowa or nearby, feel free to share those as well.
