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

Diagnosis: When we have full tour dates, we will post.

  1. Okay, let’s talk turkey here! Like a lot of die hard Prince fans around the country, I’ve had my eye on the net all this week waiting for tour dates to be announced! I’m now hearing that the pattern of these so called guerrilla gigs is set to continue, ie a few hours notice and buy tickets at the door…..thus making it nigh on impossible for anyone who lives outside of London to see him! Also, these gigs are at low capacity venues making tickets even less available for the masses! The 21 nights in London at the O2 was a 20,000 capacity arena…..you do the maths!! Hence, this is gonna piss a lot of people off…….and he’s got a new album to sell!! Perhaps a marketing rethink could be in order!?

  2. So Much News Of All Of These Goings-On Already 4 The New Year! House Of Mirrors, Don’t Know Which Way This Is All Gonna Go But, Having Lots Of Fun Finding Out :-). 2014 Is In Full Effect. Shall We Begin???

  3. I really hope recordings of the London shows DO get officially released!
