Prince has released a slew of new music online in recent months via his 3rdeyegirl website. In December he released the track ‘Rock And Roll Love Affair’ and followed it up with ‘Screwdriver’ and another new song, ‘Breakfast Can Wait’, in February. He and 3rdEyeGirl recently embarked on a theatre tour of North America, with gigs in Vancouver, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Las Vegas, San Diego, Anaheim and Denver. They played two shows a night at most venues.
Prince recently claimed he only wants to work with young musicians, stating: “I don’t have time for old people.” The ‘Purple Rain’ singer, who turns 55 on June 7, told the Star Tribune that he chose to recruit young musicians for 3rdEyeGirl, as he wants to look towards the future. “I don’t have time for old people,” he said. “I want to work with young people. I have my legacy. It’s time for their legacy.”
It has been rumoured that Prince is on the look out for small venues to play when he comes to the UK. The last time he performed in the UK, he played to over 500,000 fans over 21 shows at London’s O2 Arena.
