    From 3 am club gigs in New York City to pajama parties at his own Paisley Park Estate, Prince has provided plenty of “holy crap” moments over the course of his career. Last night’s trip to Toronto made for another one, as Prince regaled fans with not one, but two career-spanning sets packed with rarities (“Girl”, “Elephants & Flowers”, “Somewhere Here on Earth”, “Starfish And Coffee”) and covers (David Bowie’s “Heroes”, Bob Marley’s “Waiting in Vain”, Joni Mitchell’s “A Case For You”).

    Below, fan brief footage of Prince’s Bowie tribute, the first-time ever he’s performed “Heroes” in concert. Update: Also watch footage of his Bob Marley cover of “Waiting in Vain”.

    Last night’s shows were part of Prince’s Piano & A Microphone Tour. Thus far, he’s announced new dates at a moment’s notice, so it’s unclear where he’ll be heading next. However, wherever he goes, it’s strongly recommended that you follow along:
