Prince is staying super busy with his 3rdEyeGirl band with the news today that he’ll be playing four shows in the UK next month.
Prince has scheduled four arena shows with 3rdEyeGirl – at Birmingham LG Arena on 15 May, Manchester Phones 4u Arena on 16 May, Glasgow SSE Hydro on 22 May, Leeds First Direct Arena on 23 May. Before the announcement, the Guardian heard rumours two Glasgow Hydro shows had been booked, though both Prince’s publicist and the venue said they knew nothing of such plans. The fact one Hydro show has been announced suggests a second might be a possibility. Tickets for the arena shows go on sale on Friday 2 May at noon, priced from £65 plus booking fees.
