Pop star Prince thrilled 60,000 festival fans with a blazing performance at California’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts event. Playing well past midnight, Prince closed day two of Coachella with hits “1999,” “Little Red Corvette,” “Let’s Go Crazy” and “Purple Rain,” among others. After collaborations with Morris Day (“Jungle Love”) and Sheila E (“Glamorous Life”). “You are the coolest place on earth right now!,” Prince told fans as he played covers of Radiohead’s Creep and the Beatles’ Come Together. Prince, who had been a rumored Coachella headliner for several years, has just one other date on his upcoming schedule: a June 16 show at Dublin’s Croke Park. Portishead, Jack Johnson and Kraftwerk were also on the 125-strong bill. Coachella founder Paul Tollet denied reports he had paid Prince $4.8m to secure the Saturday night performance, which had only been confirmed two weeks before the event.
