Video of Prince’s Super Bowl halftime show on its 10-year anniversary

New, comments

Prince passed away less than a year ago, and as we prepare for Super Bowl 51, today is a fun anniversary. 10 years ago today, Prince performed at halftime of Super Bowl 41. The game itself was entirely forgettable, with the Indianapolis Colts beating the Chicago Bears by a score of 29-17. But the halftime show is the greatest in Super Bowl history, in my opinion.

The Vimeo video above has the entire show, and it is well worth a view as we close out Saturday. Mark Hinog broke down the show in this article at SB Nation. It was pretty close to a perfect halftime show, capped with a performance of Purple Rain as it was raining. You could not have scripted the show any better.

Give it a watch, and see you on Super Bowl Sunday!
