Prince Biography - Time-Defying Music Royalty
Contrary to popular belief,
the performer was given his iconic name at birth and was born into a very musical family, inheriting his tune-making talents
from his pianist father and jazz singer mother. He penned his first song 'Funk Machine' on his father's piano at the age of
seven and stumbled upon fame ten years later with early funk outfit 94 East. Before long, the spellbinding singer became a
star in his own right, shocking audiences with albums like 1980's Dirty Mind and setting a precedence for using abbreviated
spellings such as "U" for "you" in his song titles.
His eponymous platinum-selling album skyrocketed up charts across
the globe, buoyed by comparisons to fellow pop royalty Michael Jackson. The performer's sixth studio album, Purple Rain,
revolutionised pop music in 1984 and has since constantly occupied the upper echelons of music's "best of" lists. Famed
for his ever evolving identity, the performer has reinvented himself countless times but has always maintained his mystery-shrouded
image, reinforced by quirks like the change of his name to an unpronounceable symbol in the early 90's, sparking the nickname
'The Artist Formerly Known as Prince'. Buy and sell Prince tickets now on StubHub UK to see this legendary performer in the
