Prince onstage during one of his 21 nights at London’s O2 Arena, August – September 2007. Talking about his record-breaking stint (and subsequent book), Prince told ABC News: "I wanted to document something that was never done before. I don’t expect that record to be broken unless I break it."

Prince on his way to an aftershow party following one of his 21 sold-out nights at the O2. Photographer Randee St. Nicholas recalls: "Prince spent more alone time on this tour than any time previously. He was more isolated than I’ve ever seen him. A lot of these pictures capture that solitary feeling."

Prince shares a joke with his backing dancers, The Twinz, at London restaurant China Tang, which stayed open until 5am so the singer could enjoy a leisurely post-gig meal. Photographer Randee St Nicholas recalls: "A lot of people assume Prince has no sense of humour, but he spent the whole of that night making us laugh. We had the entire restaurant to ourselves – which is why I was able to catch this incredibly candid and relaxed moment on camera."
