Alabama Shakes Honor Prince With Dedication At Nashville Performance

first_imgBeloved rock n’ soulers the Alabama Shakes performed at the Ascend Amphitheatre in Nashville, TN two nights ago, April 21st. Of course, the performance came just hours after the news of Prince’s death broke, closing an unforgettable chapter in music history. Just last year, the worlds of Prince and the Alabama Shakes collided, as Prince invited the Shakes to his Paisley Park mansion for a performance. He even sat in with them and played a roaring guitar solo on the bluesy song “Gimme All Your Love.”Naturally, when the Shakes set up to perform the blues number, they dimmed the lights to a haunting shade of purple, and allowed for Brittany Howard to speak about the lost legend. “We lost another great treasure today,” she said. “It was very unfortunate, and very sad news when we heard it. I’d like to dedicate this song right here to Prince, because this is a song that he played with us. I just want to let him know we love him, we miss him, and God bless him. May he rest in peace.”While the band didn’t join so many others in playing Prince’s music, they certainly felt the loss just as strongly as any other. Check out some fan-shot videos from the performance below:Don’t Wanna FightI Ain’t The Same[Via The Tennessean]last_img read more
