Prince charging bargain price for London shows

Pop superstar Prince plans to charge fans as little as $10 (£6) for tickets to his upcoming London shows. The Purple Rain hitmaker played two surprise concerts in the city on Tuesday (04Feb14) as he announced plans to stage a number of gigs around the U.K. capital with his all-female band 3rd Eye Girl.
During a press conference to talk about his latest venture, Prince confirmed entrance fees will be kept extremely low, saying, “We want to charge about $10 a ticket. This is a new band, people are getting something new.”
The singer, who staged a lucrative 20-night residency at London’s O2 Arena in 2007, insists he now wants to concentrate on smaller venues and intimate shows, adding, “That was a different time, this is a different band.”
