Prince graces the stage at North Charleston Coliseum

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

The one and only Prince graced the stage Wednesday night at the North Charleston Coliseum. Prince hits also filled the air for the "Purple Rain" pre- show party.

Eager super fans waited to take their seats for what they say was the concert of a lifetime.

"He is one of my all time favorites he is one of the funkiest guys on the planet," a concert goer said.

Fans Mikey Tavakian and Rick Sanchez were dressed from head-to-toe for the what they said is one of the happiest days of their life.

"I'm purple rain Prince and I am the early years when he had the curl and a lot of hair," Mickey Tabakian and Rick Sanchez said..

They said after hearing Prince was coming to town they jumped on the computer, ordered their tickets and made their gear for the concert within hours.

"I'm his same size we are both little people and he is my inspiration because he is so little, but so big in this world," Tabakian said.

Ayanna Shivers managed to snag front row seats as a graduation gift from a friend.

"I have always loved Prince since I was little," Shivers said.

The excitement was so contagious that even Alan Coker, who works for the North Charleston Coliseum, had to pinch himself about Wednesday's performance.

"It's one of the biggest shows in the history of the coliseum. It's Prince, you can't get much bigger than that," Coker said.

"Prince is the man of all times. I have seen him four times and this is my fifth and I hope he goes on forever," fan Lisa Edgar said.

The one-night only concert in Charleston is part of Prince's Welcome to America tour.
