Item 5390 - Prince 1994 David Letterman Ticket Catalog 571 (Dec 2019)

Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $250.00 (includes buyer's premium)


Unused ticket for the Late Show with David Letterman at the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York City, on December 13, 1994, measures 5.25 x 2.75, issued as ticket No. 0004. In very fine condition. Accompanied by the original ticket envelope. As the show's musical guest, Prince and the New Power Generation performed 'Dolphin' from his forthcoming album The Gold Experience.

According to keyboardist Morris Hayes, the Letterman performance was one of NPG's most memorable: 'There are many great shows and songs we did but this one is one of my favorites…This particular show was crazy because he decided as we were waiting to walk on stage that he wanted to edit the song. He asked me if I had the gun sample and told me to cut the second verse and go straight to the bridge and pretend he was shot and be dragged off the stage by Big Coco. Me having vocal samples to play, I was like, omg…this dude! He said all that and said, 'No mistakes.' Talk about added pressure! But being the tight unit that we were, we were able to make the adjustment and make it look like that what it was all along.'
