The shows will take place in Birmingham at the LG Arena on 15 May, Manchester’s Phones 4U Arena on 16 May, Glasgow’s SSE Hydro on 22 May and Leeds’ First Direct Arena on 23 May. Prince will return to the UK with his band 3rdEyeGirl, who he performed with during his UK February dates.
The concerts will be his first arena shows since 2007 when he played a residency at The O2 and it will be the first time that he has played in Leeds.
Prince sent fans into frenzy during his guerrilla gigs in February, which saw the singer and 3rdEyeGirl perform in iconic venues in London. He performed at several venues including the Electric Ballroom, Koko, and Shepherd’s Bush Empire as well as two shows at Manchester’s O2 Academy. His performances received rave reviews.
Prince recently re-joined the label Warner and is allegedly due to release a new album, Plectrum Electrum. However, the album was originally announced over a year ago.
Prince tickets for his arena shows in Birmingham, Manchester, Glasgow and Leeds will go on general sale on Friday 2 May 2014.
