After a series of random intimate and acclaimed UK shows which took place earlier this year, Prince has announced that he will be headlining his first regional UK arena tour since 1995 and is aptly titled Hit and Run II.
The singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and actor who has produced ten platinum albums and thirty Top 40 singles during his career, will be performing in Birmingham, Manchester, Glasgow and Leeds and these arenas are his first UK arena gigs since his sell out residency at The O2 in London back in 2007. These exclusive and must see arena shows with 3RDEYEGIRL will be starting on the 15th of May.
Hit and Run II will be the first time Prince has ever performed in Leeds and is also his first headline show in Birmingham and Glasgow in 19 years. The show in Manchester is continuing on from his double night at the Academy in February. This is news that should not be ignored as the American star truly is a legend in so many ways, that is even more so legendary live. The full list of shows is listed below:
Thursday, 15th May 2014 – Birmingham LG Arena
Friday, 16th May 2014 – Manchester Phones 4u Arena
