On the 11th of October 1981, a mostly unknown performer, Prince, opened for rock legends The Rolling Stones at the LA Coliseum.
His first performance on this tour on the 9th had seen Prince booed off the stage with missiles hurled at him.
It took much persuasion to get the shaken and distraught Prince to reappear 2 days later on the 11th. His set got the same treatment which you can read more about here: That time Prince got booed off the Rolling Stones’ Stage
Prince (1958 – 2016) is now regarded as one of the greatest and influential musicians of his generation.
