Prince has ruled out playing any large venues while in London with his band 3rd Eye Girl after playing at the Electric Ballroom in Camden last night (February 4), hinting instead at small club gigs.

Speaking to BBC 6 Music prior to the surprise Camden show, Prince revealed that he is interested in playing the Electric Ballroom and venues such as Ronnie Scott's and the Bag O' Nails Club in Soho – although these are not yet confirmed.

Either way, he will not be replicating the O2 Arena shows he played in 2007. "That was a different time, this is a different band," he said. "We'll work our way up, if people like us, to bigger venues."

Quizzed on how long he plans to stay in London, he said his trip was "open-ended", explaining, "We're going to be here until people don't want to hear us any more." Tickets for the upcoming shows will also be priced reasonably for fans. "We wanna charge about $10 a ticket. This is a new band, people are getting something new."

Prince's 'open soundcheck' in Camden last night (February 4), largely comprised of new material, including 'Guitar', 'Plectrum Electrum', 'PretzelBodyLogic' and 'Funk N Roll'. Click here to read the full report from the show.
