And he wants Amy Winehouse to join him

Prince is to perform his greatest hits for the last time at a massive London residency this summer.

The star will perform for 21 nights, kicking off with seven shows at the 02 Arena on August 1, 3, 4, 7, 10, 11 and 14.

Tickets for what is being billed as the Earth Tour go on sale at 9am on Friday (May 11).

The other shows will be announced at a later date.

The ticket price of £31.21 will also include a copy of Prince’s as-yet-untitled new album.

Speaking at a press conference in London today (May 8), Prince said he and his band had rehearsed 150 songs for the dates, the only European shows he will perform this year.

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!”
