Musical God and aspiring memoirist Prince performed a massive 57-song, five-encore show in Toronto Friday night, as part of his Piano & A Microphone Tour. Stand-outs include Prince staples “Purple Rain” and “Starfish and Coffee,” as well as covers of the Charlie Brown song “Linus and Lucy,” Joni Mitchell’s “A Case for You,” and David Bowie’s “Heroes,” which sounds salacious and sultry coming from Prince’s lips.
