(May 9, 2019) Turbine Media Group, a German based, award-winning home entertainment company, announces the release of the legendary Prince concert film, SIGN O THE TIMES, as a Limited Deluxe Edition on September 9th 2019.  For licensing reasons, the film will be formatted for and released exclusively in “region code B/2”. Region B/2 refers to Blu-ray Disc formatting for Europe, Greenland, French territories, Middle East, Africa, Australia and New Zealand. (Note: If the DVD formatting is for Region 2, then that would be for Europe, Japan, South Africa, and the Middle East, including Egypt.)

During his 1987 European tour and with only two days production preparation, Prince filmed two shows in Rotterdam and Antwerp after canceling shows in England and Italy. The footage from the filmed concerts was used to create the incredible SIGN “O” THE TIMES film. Included with the special 2019 release is a booklet with an overview of the history of the concert film and well as a brand new documentary, PRINCE – THE PEACH & BLACK TIMES, produced exclusively for this release with interviews of former collaborators of Prince. A teaser for the documentary will be released this weekend.
