The Revolution rock Louisville’s Mercury Ballroom
“Dearly beloved We are gathered here today To get through this thing called “life” Electric word, life It means forever and that’s a mighty long time But I’m here to tell you There’s something else The afterworld, A world of never ending happiness You can always see the sun, day or night” A few amazing verses from Prince’s “Let’s Go Crazy” sum up a fun and emotional evening with The Revolution in Louisville.
Celebrating the music of Prince, The Revolution shine with a high-energy set that had the Mercury Ballroom crowd rocking and rolling from the opening chords. On an evening filled with several special moments, none were more powerful than Wendy’s explanation of how The Revolution came up with tonight’s setlist. As Wendy explains, “everyone was in agreement that they wanted to include “Sometimes It Snows In April” in the set list. In preparation for the tour, the group was looking for the original music sheets for the song. It has been more than 1 year since Prince’s passing (he died on April 21st), after a bit they noticed that the song sheets were also dated April 21st. “. With Wendy, center stage, an acoustic guitar around her neck, and Lisa at the keyboards they started off in a stirring and emotional rendition of the song.
As expected, there were all the usual songs in the set list tonight including “Let’s Go Crazy,” “1999,” “Raspberry Beret,” “Kiss,” and “When Dove’s Cry”. The revolution closed out the evening in a gigantic way with “Purple Rain,” I Would Die For U,” and “Baby I’m a Star”. The Revolution were lively, sharp and clearly having a great time tonight which translated well for the crowd of enthusiastic fans.
