March 24, 1985 was a huge day for me.  I saw Prince and the Revolution play Madison Square Garden during their Purple Rain tour with Sheila E as their opener!  Yep, feel free to be jealous.   Cheesy  I, of course, bought the program but couldn't bring myself to cut into it so decided to frame the awesome t-shirt I bought that day instead.  When I decided to do this project, it took me about 5 minutes to find the components across 3 different rooms of my house.  I feel quite the accomplishment for that considering it's 30 years and 8 houses later!



The tickets were just $17.50.  I think I paid over $100 to see him 20 years later in Las Vegas but it just wasn't the same without Wendy and Lisa backing him. 



Those flowers actually fell from the ceiling of the arena during his encore, which was of course Purple Rain.  This project brought back great memories for me, thanks so much Ticketmaster!

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

I'd like to say you and Prince have a lot in common, but he only makes great music. You make great food, quilts, shrines, zombie miniatures...the list goes on and on! Oh, and it only took you five minutes to find a scrap of paper from 1985. That's impressive all by itself.

Love the touch the flowers bring visually as well as being part of the concert memorabilia.

What a great way to remember the concert! I can't believe tickets were only $17.50.  Cheesy
