Prince back in London for two gigs in one night at the Roundhouse
Tickets for the singer's shows tomorrow night go on sale at midday today
Prince is set to continue his Hit and Run Tour Part III with 3RDEYEGIRL after announcing two London shows in one night.
The “Purple Rain” singer will take to the stage at Camden’s historic Roundhouse tomorrow with gigs starting at 5.30pm and 9.45pm. After 48 hours’ notice, tickets will go on sale from midday today.
Prince performed a run of UK shows last month in his first regional dates since 1995. The funk-rock icon took over intimate, legendary London and Manchester venues in February for spontaneous shows announced last minute on Twitter.
Arena gigs in Birmingham, Manchester, Glasgow and Leeds followed to widespread critical acclaim.
Last Sunday, Prince performed two sold-out concerts in one night in Paris, followed by an appearance in Brussels where three surprise gigs were put on in just five hours.
Prince has been mixing up his setlists to include both classic hits, brand new tracks and rarely-performed songs. He is accompanied by all-female band 3RDEYEGIRL, composing of guitarist Donna Grantis, bassist Ida Nielsen and drummer Hannah Ford-Welton, who are due to release their album PLECTRUMELECTRUM later this year.
