Prince performs new material on UK tour
16 May 2014
Prince kicked off his UK tour last night in Birmingham where he played several new songs slated to appear on his upcoming album.
Prince was backed by his band 3rdEyeGril for the opening night of his Hit and Run Part II tour at Birmingham’s LG Arena last night (Thursday 12 May 2014), which saw the Purple One perform several new songs including Funk n Roll and Pretzelbodylogic.
The tracks are reportedly set to appear on his new album with 3rdEyeGirl, titled PlectrumElectrum. The set was accompanied by several of Prince’s classic songs including Purple Rain.
Prince continues his tour in arenas in Manchester, Glasgow and Leeds as well as playing a second date in Birmingham. The Prince tour follows on from his shows earlier in the year where he played a series of surprise concerts in small venues in London and Manchester.
Prince tickets are now on sale for his May UK tour.
