He also revealed his wish for Amy Winehouse to join him onstage for a version of her track ‘Love Is A Losing Game’.

Prince also said that after the shows he was going to take time off to travel and study The Bible. He also revealed he’s been house-hunting in London, and added: “I really like Earl's Court , but I can’t live there!”
