PRINCE & 3RDEYEGIRL held 2 press conferences where details of a UK Tour were to be unveiled. Instead were 2 rare performances and the question of UK gigs to come sometime today, Wednesday.
The first was a press conference in Lianne La Havas‘s living room where La Havas performed “Little Dragons” twice and a new song as well, according to BBC News 6.
They only had 3 journalists there as 3RDEYEGIRL performed an acoustic version of “FUNKNROLL” and “PRETZELBODYLOGIC” for the small crowd, in the small flat.

The BBC reporter felt Prince smelled great wearing Princense. That’s a new word.
On 3RDEYEGIRL, Prince LOVES the band: “We’ve been together for over a year and it’s perfect. The more we play, the more fun it is, and addictive it is.” Prince would say that they would jam for days with ping pong battles sprinkled in between sessions.
They do not not know how long they will be in the UK and said it is an open-ended stay.
“We want to charge about $10 a ticket. This is a new band, people are getting something new.”-Prince. Ticket price was quoted by BBC.
Prince is NOT playing Glastonbury.
They are looking to record the live shows for release while there.
At the second press conference at the Electric Ballroom, more reporters checked out Prince including Mumford & Sons.
They played a 30 minute set that consisted of “I Could Never Take The Place Of Your Man”, “PLECTRUMELECTRUM”, “PRETZELBODYLOGIC”, and a cover of “Play That Funky Music.”
Prince was in a very good mood and loved the energy of the crowd.
There will be another performance tonight with a countdown of 7 P.M. at the Electric Ballroom. Although they said it would be a longer night and start earlier, we are not sure if they will exactly start at 7 P.M.-DocFB
