Prince Planning To Tour Small Venues In UK

Prince is looking to tour the UK in the next few months, but the singer only wants to play in small venues across the country.

The last time he played on the island, he took part in 21 shows at London’s O2 arena and played to over 500,000 fans. But he has now asked promoters to find small venues for his next gigs, which will be to promote his new album later this year.

An insider told The Sun, “Prince has gone back to basics this year, playing in front of 300 people at the SXSW festival in Texas. He’s now on a US tour of small club shows and wants to do something similar in the UK later in the year.”

The source then added, “It’s still to be decided if he’ll stay at one small venue and play 20 or more gigs or split his time between a few places around the country. Prince has asked his team to find unusual venues his fans wouldn’t expect him to play.”

Last month, the Purple Rain star announced that he would be taking part in a 28-date tour across 10 cities which would see the star play several nights each.

Prince will play in Vancouver, San Francisco, Las Vegas, San Diego, Anaheim, and Seattle whilst he will also play a set at the Montreux Jazz Festival.

The singer has spent the last few months updating his newly created Twitter and Youtube accounts and he also appeared on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, where he played his new song, “Screwdriver.”

This was preceded by the release of new songs, Rock and Roll Love Affair, Breakfast Can Wait, and Screwdriver itself as well as a rousing closing night at show at Austin’s South By Southwest event, which saw him backed by a 22-piece band.

Prince’s forthcoming album is entitled, Plectrum Electrum, and will be preceded by his latest single, “FIXURLIFEUP.”
