Prince rocks Toronto in two consecutive concerts

Thousands of people squeezed into a Toronto venue for two sold-out Prince concerts Tuesday night.
The "1999" singer played at the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts at 8 p.m., and then again at 11:30 p.m., just one day day after tickets went on sale. The concerts are part of his "HitNRun" surprise tour, and locations and details of shows won't be unveiled until days or hours before they start.
Despite the short notice, tickets were scooped up quickly, and most websites reported they'd been sold out.
Purple-clad concert-goers were treated to songs from the singer's new album as well as hits including "When Doves Cry," and "Raspberry Beret."
Fans took to social media during and after the concert, saying the singer "killed it" with his Toronto shows.
