Prince Live In London

After announcing 21 dates earlier this week he gives the capital a sneak preview and MTV News was there...

Prince played a secret show at Camdens Koko venue last night and wowed London.

The Purple Rain star arrived on stage just after 11.30pm with a large band that included a four-piece brass section.

Prince, who this week announced a 21 night residency for the capital in August (VIEW DETAILS HERE) played a 2 hour set encompassing many of his greatest hits.

Kiss, Cream, You Got The Look and Nothing Compares 2 You all featured. The funk-god also played covers of Gnarls Barkleys Crazy and Amy Winehouses Love Is a Losing Game.

Prince, perfectly turned out in white boots and blazer, also invited audience members on stage to dance with him. Celebs in attendance included Sophie Ellis Bextor, The Feeling, Will Young and Mika.

During the gig the 48-year-old singer said he was playing in the UK because there was Nothing happening in America.

Well Prince were glad to have you!
