Prince has added two more dates to his arena tour in May after tickets sold out in minutes.

The 'Let's Go Crazy' hitmaker, who has announced a number of regional gigs following secret concerts in London and Manchester, will play Manchester's Phones 4u Arena on Saturday, May 17 and Birmingham's LG Arena on Monday, May 19.

These are in addition to two other shows at Birmingham, LG Arena, Manchester, Phones 4u Arena, Glasgow's SSE Hydro Arena and Leeds First Direct Arena.

Fans were desperate to get their hands on tickets for the already announced shows at midday today (02.04.14) but many were left disappointed.

One posted on Twitter: ''If anyone I know got Prince tickets and I never, don't speak to me ever again.''

The new shows have reignited speculation that Prince could be the third headliner at this year's Glastonbury Festival, despite Michael Eavis's recent claims it is ''one of the biggest-selling bands in the world at the moment'', hinting it could be Metallica.

Meanwhile, Prince recently signed a record deal with Warner Bros almost 20 years after he left the label amid much controversy.

Tickets are on sale now from £65 each.
