PBS is airing a concert created by Prince in 1999. Recorded at Paisley Park Studios, this concert has not been broadcast since it aired as part of a pay-for-view nearly 20 years ago. David Gillette previewed the concert with Prince “superfan” Terry Gray, who attended that concert back in September of 1999. Terry and David talked about the concert and then showed a clip from the event. Twin Cities PBS viewers can watch the Prince concert, Rave Un2 the Year 2000, Saturday June 1 at 8 pm.
