PRINCE KOKO London Photo: NPGRECORDS 2015 PRINCE & 3RDEYEGIRL along with Liv Warfield. took over KOKO In London for a private concert for Autism Rocks yesterday. The concert was by invite only with only a few tickets on sale to raise awareness for Autism. We were asked by organizers to not publicize the event before it happened due to it being a private show and we all know what happened the last time Prince was in London so we could understand especially that it does not appear that the purple one will be in there for long with the Grammy's this weekend and him being teased as appearing at the award show in Los Angeles. Prince & 3RDEYEGIRL tore up London yet again last night, February 2nd 2015, as they played a joyous set for a private charity event at the historic venue KOKO in Camden Town.  Re-visiting the scene of one of their triumphant 'Hit and Run' shows from last year, Prince and the band (guitarist Donna Grantis, bassist Ida Nielsen and drummer Hannah Ford-Welton) took to the stage to play an astonishing set that turned KOKO into a massive Monday night party.  At the organizer’s request, Prince and the band delivered an awe inspiring greatest hits collection to a rapturous reception from the capacity crowd. Prince will also be doing another benefit for Autism Rocks scheduled for tonight in Dubai. We will have news on that after the show takes place.

PRINCE Photo: MTV News PRINCE & 3RDEYEGIRl took over KOKO playing multiple shows and even letting some people in for free towards the end of the last show.   M Walker also had this to say about show 1: Beyond remarkable! Never disappointed! COMPLETELY worth every penny and the 4 hours queue! Lianne La Havas guested on the first show as far as we know and Marcus Anderson played sax to "777-9311", his first time playing it with PRINCE & 3RDEYEGIRL. We got a taste of what it sound like last month in Los Angeles. Gil Deker had this to say about the first show: Got a first balcony spot with great sight. Set list tonight was great and diversed. Highlights for me were "Something In The Water", "FUNKNROLL" "PLECTRUMELECTRUM" and "Sign O The Times". Prince played killer guitar and bass! Great show overall. Sound was better at King's.
