Live Review // Prince @ Malahide Castle, Dublin

The old backlash started early on this one. “Back to music journalism school with you.” Fantastic.

p.s. there are no official photos with this because Prince banned photographers at the last minute. So you get lovely Harry instead.

The grounds of Malahide Castle weren’t so much bathed in purple on Saturday night as they were lightly speckled with maroon: if nothing else, you won’t see a larger gathering of Galway GAA shirts in a Dublin park this summer.

Prince’s first visit to Ireland in nine years, following the last-minute cancellation of his Croke Park gig in 2009, was sold as a greatest hits show in response to slower than expected sales – though at almost €100 a ticket it’s no surprise that many left the decision until the very last minute. It certainly was a greatest hits show, but a quick glance at Prince’s recent setlists across Europe shows he’s prone to dip in to his catalogue of classic singles more or less at will.
