Amidst a wintery storm outside and a rain of confetti inside, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Prince[/lastfm] kicked off his “Welcome 2 America” concert series last night at the IZOD Center in New Jersey.

Kicking off with “Laydown” from his most recent album 20Ten, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Prince[/lastfm] and his backup singers rocked through a set of favorites, newer tracks and some hidden gems from the catalog.

The set list:

“Black Muse”
“The Beautiful Ones”
“Raspberry Beret”
“Cool” (The Time Cover)
“Let’s Work”
“U Got The Look”
“Angel” (Sarah McLachlan cover)
“Nothing Compares 2 U”
“She’s Always In My Hair”
“If I Was Your Girlfriend”
“Purple Rain”


“Sometimes It Snows In April”
“Diamonds And Pearls”
“All The Critics Love U In New York”
“Sexy Dancer”
“Le Freak” (Chic cover)

([lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Prince[/lastfm] is notoriously copyright happy; clips on YouTube and from other sources are going down faster than they are going up.)

On a scale of one to 10, how jealous are you that NYC is getting these shows and LA isn’t?
