Prince Plays Two Secret Shows In London
Posted by Joseph Lee on 02.15.2014



NME reports that Prince performed at two secret shows last night at the King's Place in London. He was joined by his new band 3RDEYEGIRL at the auditorium, which seats 420 people and was part of his Hit and Run tour.

Fans lined up outside for what was rumored to be (thanks to a tweet from 3RDEYEGIRL) an acoustic show with a Q&A session. Tickets cost £70 ($117) and it did not drop to £10 (as it did at Shepherds Bush Empire on Feb. 9). Doors opened at 9 PM. Before the concert, a clip of Prince on the sitcom New Girl played on a screen behind the instruments. 3RDEYEGIRL then showed up and asked the audience not to take photos before announcing four more Prince shows: Koko on Sunday night, Ronnie Scott's on Monday and in Manchester on Friday and Saturday. Then Prince joined the band (which includes drummer Hannah 'Ford' Welton, bassist Ida Nielsen and guitarist Donna Grantis). They played "Take Me With U" and acoustic versions of "U Got The Look", "Raspberry Beret" and "The Most Beautiful Girl In The World". They also performed covers of The Clash's "Train In Vain", and Roxy Music's "More Than This" (which was instrumental).

The Q&A was short and took place during the show. Prince answered four questions. When asked how London is "treating him", Prince said "perfect". When asked "How can you be so timeless and great?", he rolled his yes and laughed.

He told everyone to "be nice" to "our friend" Lianne LaHavas, who let him hold a press conference at her home to kickstart the Hit and Run tour. The performance then switched to an electric show with songs like "Dreamer" and Guitar", as well as unreleased songs from their new album PLECTRUMELECTRUM. Prince then said that there were 500 people outside and that there would be a second show that night. It was then confirmed at the show that Prince and 3RDEYEGIRL will perform at the 2014 BRIT Awards on February 19.
