Prince’s new band 3RDEYEGIRL have released footage from their last minute London gig on Sunday (February 9).
The footage sees the band perform ‘Chaos & Disorder’ at Shepherds Bush Empire as part of their Hit And Run London tour. The six-and-a-half-minute clip includes images of fans’ excited tweets from the show, plus NME’s report of the concert.
The footage is among the first official footage to emerge from the London shows, which also included two concerts in one night at the Electric Ballroom. The clip opens with a 50-second glimpse of the enormous queue outside the venue, which quickly built up after the show was announced on Sunday morning. It ends with a three-minute jam by the band, including a lengthy guitar solo by Prince.
‘Chaos & Disorder’ is expected to feature on 3RDEYEGIRL’s debut album ‘PLECTRUMELECTRUM’, which is yet to have a release date.
Prince is believed to be playing further London shows in the coming days. Earlier today (February 13) his manager Kiran Sharma tweeted: “Hello #princearmy…out of interest…who is willing to pay £70 for a show tonight? #princewatch #princeuktour.”
Bookmakers Paddy Power have made Prince 1/3 favourite to headline the Saturday night of Glastonbury on June 28, although Arcade Fire are the only confirmed headline artists so far.
