Fans are allowed to see his next show for free now...
NME reports that Prince played a two-and-a-half hour surprise show at Manchester's Academy on Friday (Feb. 21), but he was reportedly criticized on Twitter when fans complained that a second surprise performance was cancelled within hours of being announced.
Unlike Prince's Hit and Run tour dates in London, tickets for the show were sold online in advance and were sold out in seconds. The remainder were sold at the door when it opened at 7:30PM. After the show started, the Manchester Academy announced a second show for the same night. 150 fans reporteldy lined up to see the encore. After the show ended though, the houselights came up and security escorted people out.
It has now been reportedly agreed to that all customers who purchased one of the 150 tickets for the cancelled show would be able to watch Prince's second date in Manchester set for tonight (February 22) for free.
