Prince - Prince played another surprise London show

Prince performed another surprise show at London's Shepherd's Bush Empire last night (09.10.14).

Celebrities including Cara Delevingne, Nick Grimshaw and Florence Welch danced along to the 'Purple Rain' hitmaker and his all-female band, 3RDEYEGIRL.

The gig followed a secret 'open sound-check' and two gigs in one night at the Electric Ballroom in north London last week, tickets for which were just £10 for fans who queued for hours in the rain to see the music legend.

Last night's concert was announced on BBC 6 Music by the singer's band and hundreds of fans started queuing outside the venue for tickets which were labelled as £70 and later brought down to £10 once gig-goers reached the doors at 7pm.

The singer performed new material with his band and launched into a medley of 'How Come U Don't Call Me Anymore?', 'Purple Rain' and 'Do Me Baby', which went down a storm with the audience.

Prince is continuing his string of surprise London performances at a number of ''iconic venues'' in the city which are causing a buzz on social media.

He has hinted at his desire to play venues such as Ronnie Scott's and the Bag O' Nails Club in Soho - although details for future gigs are being kept under wraps.

Prince also described his trip to London as ''open-ended'' and told fans: ''We're gonna try and find somewhere else to play in this city. We'll stay as long as you'll have us.''
