Prince Announces Final Six Nights of Record Breaking UK Appearances at The O2
June, 11 2007
Today Prince announces a further six nights at The O2 arena, Europe’s ultimate entertainment destination that opens on 24th June. Prince is now performing ALL 21 dates at The O2, after his last 15 concerts SOLD OUT in a matter of hours. The shows eclipse all previous arena attendance records and will see Prince perform his greatest hits for the last time ever.
David Campbell, President & CEO of AEG Europe, commented: “Prince’s 21 nights at The O2 are a testament to London’s eagerly awaited new entertainment destination. We’re thrilled that a world-class artist like Prince is part of our opening season, and that he’ll be breaking a world record in our arena.”
Promoter Rob Hallett of AEG Live said, “It is extraordinary that any artiste can sell out so many nights in London, the previous record was 14, but to sell this quickly and in August is quite remarkable! However with Prince we are talking about a phenomenal artiste who has spent his whole career raising the bar so we shouldn’t be too surprised. I can see this record outliving the century!”
The new dates are August 24th, August 25th, September 6th, September 16th, September 20th and September 21st. Tickets will go on sale at 9am on Friday 15th June and are available from www.theO2.co.uk or by calling 0871 230 44 22. All tickets will cost £31.21 and will include a copy of Prince’s new CD.
