Mega popstar Prince announced at a low key King’s Place show in London last week that he will be playing two shows in Manchester this Friday and Saturday – but he’s yet to confirm where. We reckon that Manchester Academy, The Ritz, the MEN Arena or Albert Hall can accommodate his purpleness. It turns out that they’re all busy except for the Ritz, which has no live booking on Friday, and possibly Academy 1. The Albert Hall is also free on both nights. Following a number of hints from insiders, our money is now on Gorilla and Albert Hall. Are we right? Best keep an eye on the Twitter accounts below for up-to-the-minute info.

UPDATE: The venue was revealed on Wednesday evening: Manchester Academy 1. Tickets went on immediate sale and advanced tickets sold out in minutes. ‘A limited amount of tickets will be available on the door.’

Fri 21 Feb and Sat 22 Feb, Manchester Academy, Oxford Road, 7pm, £70 adv (sold out), @3RDEYEGIRL, @PrincePartyUK

Fri 21 Feb - Sat 22 Feb
