The 1999 Tour, was up till then, Prince's longest tour of the U.S. in support of his fifth studio album 1999. In addition, to Prince and his band, his latest all girl group Vanity 6 made their first live act tour along with the returning Time.

  • While held long time as a fact, there is no hard evidence found to support that this tour was ever denoted as the Triple Threat Tour.

History

This tour saw the debut of Vanity 6 as a live act to go along with The Time as opening act. Even with the release of the The Time’s second album, What Time Is It?, tension between Prince and The Time escalated as the band was forced to play as Vanity 6’s band during their 40-minute set with only a small increase in pay. They were further slighted by having to play behind a curtain, while the sultry girl group performed out front on-stage. Eventually, the heat between the bands and the fact that Prince was getting increasingly insecure at The Time’s nightly great performances, led to Prince dropping them from the tour altogether.[1]

Additionally, this marked the end of Dez Dickerson's tenure as a member of Prince’s band, as the year prior, Dickerson became a born-again Christian and found himself conflicted playing music with such racy lyrics and was further upset when prior to last year’s Homecoming tour stop in Minneapolis, he expressed his desire to omit “Head” from that night’s set, which often ended with Prince simulating masturbating with his guitar. Dez gathered support from the rest of the members in the band to show a united front requesting they didn’t play the song in front of Dez's family, but when Prince was confronted and called for a vote, all but Dez sided with Prince, angering Dez.[1] With Dez's impending departure, Prince had already found a replacement in Lisa Coleman's childhood friend Wendy Melvoin, who had already been sitting in on sound checks with the band and would even stand in for Dez when he wasn't available.

Initially Prince had planned on playing at London's Dominion Theatre but opted out at the last minute, in order to continue gaining status across America

The band

Also, Jill Jones performed on tour with the band as a back-up vocalist.

Typical set list

"D.M.S.R.", "Delirious," "Uptown" and "Head" would be worked into the set list of some shows.

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
