We are all excited for the return of the artist currently known as ‘Prince’ and here are six reasons why his Hit And Run Tour Part 2 UK arena tour is going to be incredible.
1.He’s a sodding music icon: Jacko has sadly left us, Bowie won’t tour and The Stones are always touring at all times. Prince however, is the living, breathing embodiment of pop music. Prince is the real deal.
2.His new band are amazing. 3RDEYEGIRL are really something. At his press conference, Prince said “this is a new band, people are getting something new” – and that was exactly what you get. You won’t see him stood high on a podium, howling into camera phones. You’ll see him shredding thigh to thigh with his sisters in rock.
3. He can perform his classics effortlessly: I Would Die 4 U, When Doves Cry, Raspberry Beret, and of course Purple Rain – A song so emotionally raw live that Prince pours himself into it. Prince live is a once in a lifetime experience that you will never ever forget.
4. He’s in the prime of his life: Showing no signs of ageing, if there’s one thing we learned about Prince back in February it’s that he’s developed into a rock god. Stepping on to the stage clad in leather and flanked by 3RDEYEGIRL – this is Prince reborn.
5. His new stuff is brilliant: The Purple One is gearing up to release his long-awaited 36th(!) album PlectrumElectrum, and has been teasing us all with a run of excellent singles – expect it be out in force for the upcoming UK arena shows.
6. You will get your money’s worth: Prince is renowned for his gigs lasting upwards of three hours long. His run of London and Manchester shows in February were equally epic playing sets of 23-30 songs+.
