Watch Prince make his UK live return ahead of tonight’s Electric Ballroom gig.
Prince and his band 3RDEYEGIRL will play his third London gig tonight at Electric Ballroom.
Prince announced his arrival in London in spectacular style last night with a flurry of late night hit and run shows.
After flying in straight from their all night launch party for debut single PRETZELBODYLOGIC in New York City on Sunday evening the band began their stint in London with an intimate press conference in Lianne LaHavas‘s east London living room.
Playing acoustically Prince & 3RDEYEGIRL previewed two tracks from the forthcoming PLECTRUMELECTRUM album. A fittingly intimate and special location, this was the first in the series of surprise Hit and Run shows, with many more exciting events to follow through February.
Following the press conference the band moved to Camden’s historic Electric Ballroom where they played a 60 minute spontaneous jam session to a few hundred lucky fans who were tipped off about the session just an hour beforehand via Twitter. The show included characteristically guitar-driven tracks including Chaos & Disorder‘s I Like It There, I Could Never Take The Place Of Your Man and a reworking of Wild Cherry‘s Play That Funky Music.
Prince’s next London gig has been revealed in this countdown ahead of the show.
3RDEYEGIRL (guitarist Donna Grantis, bassist Ida Nielsen and drummer Hannah Ford Welton) are Prince’s new multi-national all-female rock trio.
