First time I noticed the tambourine player in the back but didn't solve the mystery of where Prince's guitar went when he threw it over his head.

Prince, what a performer! I heard that maybe he was supposed to do the solo at the 2 minute mark as well but the other lead player jumped in, so Prince was even more "inspired" to go at it at the closing solo. Dude could play.

Thanks. Now I realise he threw it in front of him to be caught by his tech below. Doh!
Here's a different version. At 6:11 right after he throws it up in the air they cut to a wide shot and you can see the guitar come down and get caught!



Here's a screen shot!

You can see the falling guitar right above Dhani's head. The same guy on the floor that propped Prince up during the solo catches it.

Dang, I didn't want that mystery solved. It was much better left open over the last 5 years, in my opinion.
