Prince arrives in London for tour

Prince has touched down in London for his UK tour - kicking off in Lianne La Havas' living room.

The Purple Rain singer previously announced details of his Hit and Run tour with all-female rock group 3rdeyegirl, and confirmed his arrival in the capital on Twitter.

British singer Lianne, 24, joined Prince at his Paisley Park Studio in Minneapolis last year and on hearing that he would be touring in 2014, jokingly invited him to launch his London gigs in her living room, only for him to take her up on the offer.

Lianne tweeted that she is expecting Prince today (February 4) and posted a picture of herself, saying: "Looking fly for the #purple guy 3rdeyeboy 3rdeyegirl."

Prince unveiled his latest single, Pretzelbodylogic, when he appeared on the Super Bowl special of New Girl in the US on February 2.

The singer is a big fan of the sitcom and got in touch with star Zooey Deschanel to ask if he could make a cameo appearance.

The episode saw Jess (Zooey) go to a party at Prince's mansion where he gave her tips on how to be sexy, to help her relationship with flatmat e Nick (Jake Johnson).
