Prince - London, England - 2007-08-25



Prince at the O2 Arena, London, England, August 25, 2007.

I am embarrassed to say that before this show I had never seen Prince before - but that's behind me now so let's not speak of it again...

This show was around #16 of Prince's "21 Nights in London" residency at the O2 Arena.

Upon entering the arena and passing through the turnstiles attendees were handed a copy of Prince's new CD, Planet Earth. Pretty much the only way I was gonna hear the new music but I am listening to it now...
