Prince Super Bowl halftime Show: Remembering when Prince rocked the Super Bowl “Watch”
- Updated: April 22, 2016
Prince’s 2007 Super Bowl halftime show is widely regarded as one of the best ever.
Prince, who died Thursday, performed Super Bowl XLI halftime show in 2007, a show that is still considered one of the best.
Prince played a 12-minute show. Perhaps the most memorable moment from his halftime show was that it was raining, pouring in fact, and Prince played “Purple Rain.”
Along with “Purple Rain,” Prince’s show included “We Will Rock You,” “Let’s Go Crazy,” “Baby I’m a Star,” “Proud Mary,” “All Along the Watchtower” and “Best of You.”
Prince was found dead at his Minnesota home today at the age of 57.
Carver County Sheriff’s officers arrived at Prince’s longtime studio around 9:45 a.m. in response to an emergency medical call, the department said in a news release. First responders began CPR to no avail.
At 10:07 a.m., Prince was pronounced dead.
Authorities did not speculate on a cause of death, but Prince’s private jet had made an emergency landing Friday, April 15, at 1:30 a.m. at a small airport in Moline, Illinois, as he was flying home from a show in Atlanta. A spokesperson told TMZ at the time that Prince was suffering from the flu, and he was taken to a local hospital for treatment. He was discharged a few hours later.
Bruce Carter, aviation director at Quad-City International Airport, told QCTimes.com during that incident that an ambulance was waiting to pick up an “unresponsive” passenger from the jet.
Prince planted his roots in the music industry early in his life and by its end he had branched across most of the musical spectrum. His greatest influence was in pop music, though, which he preserved as a long-recognizable genre even while injecting it with a sharp and infectious newness that made it his own.
By the end of his life, Prince had evolved and innovated throughout a career of 35 years that produced 39 albums, a body of work that established him as a living musical legend.
