Somewhat surprisingly, this amazing artist was bestowed with the name
Prince from birth rather than adopting it as a regal stage alias. Born into a musical family, he joined funk outfit 94 East
in 1975 before leaving to launch a solo career soon after. Scoring his first major chart entry with 'Soft and Wet' in 1978,
his major mainstream breakthrough came with his self-titled second album, which sold more than one million copies and hit

by a symbol and The Artist Formerly Known as Prince, as well as The Artist, while racking up 80 million record sales and multiple

UK have become increasingly rare - so make sure you buy Prince tickets for any upcoming shows as soon as possible.
