'Purple Rain' reissue includes Prince's epic Syracuse concert on DVD!

Prince's legendary concert in Syracuse, New York, will finally be released on DVD.

NPG Records and Warner Bros. Records are releasing a reissue of the late musician's 1984 album "Purple Rain" on June 23. 

The set will also include 11 songs from Prince's vault, including six tracks never before heard. A studio version of the rarity "Electric Intercourse" was released Friday:

An "expanded edition" of the "Purple Rain" reissue will include a third disc of Single Edits & B-Sides from the album, as well as a DVD version of "Prince and the Revolution Live!" for the first time. This is recorded live the Carrier Dome on March 30, 1985! 

Billboard reports the live DVD will feature audio and video restored from the original production master tape, making it a must-have for Prince fans.

The nearly two-hour show kicked off with "Let's Go Crazy" and concluded with an epic 20-minute version of "Purple Rain," featuring a mind-blowing 10-minute guitar solo. The show includes "Little Red Corvette," "1999," "When Doves Cry," "Baby I'm a Star" (with Apollonia 6 and Sheila E.) and the unreleased "Possessed," dedicated to James Brown.

Both versions of the reissue are available for pre-order today, which unlocks an instant free download of "Electric Intercourse" recorded in 1983.
