For those who forgot that Prince wasn’t just born out of a clam or a magical portal, the Minneapolis-born singer reminded the world of his hometown by showing support for the Minnesota Lynx women’s basketball team after their title win Wednesday.

The support came in the form of more than just a congratulatory tweet.

The 57-year-old multi-instrumentalist threw a three-hour concert for the reigning champs — perhaps an hour for every championshiop they’ve had in the past five years.

3rdEyeGirl weren’t the rhythm section as usual; instead, Prince had former NPG drummer Kirk Johnson and Mono Neon on bass, the Star Tribune reports. The set included “Kiss,” “When Doves Cry,” “Sign ‘o’ the Times,” “1,000 X’s and O’s,” “Hot Thang” and a mash-up of Michael Jackson’s “Don’t Stop Til You Get Enough” and The Time’s “Cool.”
