On Thursday, July 30th, TV on the Radio came through Minneapolis to perform at First Avenue. In honor of their return to the Mill City, the band decided to tackle a classic track from one of the area’s native sons: Prince. Appropriately drenched in purple lighting, TVOTR closed out their set with an earnest, powerful performance of the Purple Potentate’s “Purple Rain”. Kyp Malone and Tunde Adebimpe traded off lead vocals, and were even joined by Nona Marie Invie of openers RONiiA on the epic outro.
