Insider Access: The Latest Pictures from the Prince Tour

Here are some of the latest pictures from a surprise event on Prince's ‘Hit and Run – Part II’ tour of Europe. These hot, insider shots are from the latest gig, when Prince and his band 3RDEYEGIRL played at the premiere after-party for the acclaimed new movie ‘Belle’.

The show, at the Hippodrome Casino in London’s Leicester Square, was attended by the cast and crew of ‘Belle’ and a host of names including Kate Moss, Dev Hynes, Paolo Nutini, The XX and Bryan Ferry. The audience were treated to a royal set by Prince who blew up the intimate 350 capacity theatre with a thrilling range of classics from his vast catalogue as well as brand new songs.

Prince’s show comes hot on the heels of his two sold out performances at The Roundhouse in Camden on Wednesday night when he played two shows, back to back, to an audience of 6,500. The tickets went on sale at noon, Tuesday and were sold out within four minutes.

The music icon came to London as part of the tour that has proven to be unconventional and known for serving up surprises. He spent one week performing exclusive arena shows across the UK, then suddenly played three additional, unannounced shows in one night at a 400 capacity club in Brussels. Prince then landed in Paris for two electrically-charged shows in one night at the legendary Le Zenith before returning to London once again.

An amazing picture that Prince's PR team sent me from another performance
