On this day in 2007, Prince was forced off stage by Minneapolis Police halfway through his set at First Avenue. The club was only allowed to stay open until 3 a.m., and Prince went onstage at 2:45. Before his appearance at First Avenue, Prince had already played two shows in Minneapolis: the first was at the downtown location of Macy’s department store, where Prince promoted his new fragrance with a nine-song, 45-minute set; the second was his concert at Target Center, just across the street from First Avenue.
