On January 5, 1979, a 20-year-old Prince played his first show at a fundraiser for the Capri Theater in Minneapolis. Prince had been signed the previous year with Warner Bros, and some executives attended the show, with the decision made to allow the performer time to polish his act.

In October 1979, the self-titled debut Prince album was released, eventually going platinum.
