PRINCE and his band 3RDEYEGIRL have announced four UK dates for May. The shows; in Leeds, Glasgow, Manchester and Birmingham, follow an intimate stint in London and Manchester back in February.

The legendary pop singer will be back in the UK from 15 May, kicking off the tour at Birminghams’ LG Arena. From there, the ‘Purple Rain’ singer will perform at Manchesters’ Phones4U Arena, Glasgows’ SSE Hydro Arena and finally Leeds First Direct Arena.
