A Dream Came True. I Saw Prince.

A dream came true recently. I went to see him Prince live! :)

It was when he performed a series of secret gigs at different locations around London in February. Not one to usually queue for anything that’s not definitely going to happen, I sadly missed his previous gigs in Kings Place and Shepherd Bush Empire. When my friend (who had been on Prince watch for weeks) tipped me for Ronnie Scott’s I thought I’d go check it out. After all, I had a day free and rumoured to be at the oldest jazz club in London, I figured it would be the mother of all Prince concerts if he actually showed up.

Thankfully Prince did show up! With a max capacity of just 140 people, this was his most intimate venue and thankfully it was on and enjoyed by the likes of Cara Delevingne, Rita Ora and (ahem) me. Despite the fact that he was dressed like a middle aged woman going on a Sunday fun run around Richmond Park, he was sensational. Too blown away by being graced by the presence of Prince, I only managed to get one blurry picture of the man himself. Voilà!
