Singer and songwriter Prince may be in London, but those waiting for the concert to begin were at least sheltered from the Purple Rain thanks to Zoopla.
There certainly wasn’t any sorrow among those queuing to see the American star perform at the Electric Ballroom today after Zoopla handed out its large purple brollies to protect them from the elements.
As the bad weather continued, a purple glow of umbrellas was seen winding around the block as ticketholders waited to enter the Camden venue.
Performing with his new band, 3RDEYEGIRL, the 55-year-old billed the intimate concert as a ‘sound check’. It was infact a chance for the hitmaker to showcase his new album, Plectrum Electrum.
Prince flew into London on Tuesday to promote his new tracks, but details of his tour remain uncertain. However, he has reportedly indicated that he will play ‘iconic’ venues along the lines of music club the Bag o’ Nails, where Jimi Hendrix once performed, and Ronnie Scott’s jazz club.
It is alleged the tickets cost less than £10, with the star suggesting: “It is a new band, people are getting something new.”
Purple Rain was the sixth studio album by Prince and The Revolution, and was the soundtrack album to the 1984 film Purple Rain. It was released on June 25, 1984 and is widely ranked among the best albums in music history.
Ground Force’s Tommy Walsh is selling his Essex home after spending more than a decade renovating it.
The resident builder on the television garden markover show rebuilt the house from a near derelict shell.
He bought it for £29,000 just before he was offered the role on Ground Force in 1997.
The show catapulted him to fame alongside the original team of Charlie Dimmock and Alan Tichmarsh.
Tommy recently claimed ‘cement is in my blood’, having worked with his builder father from the age of four.
It is understood that applying for planning permission on the property took two years due to its Grade II listed status, and that he worked on the project with his father in the winter months when filming was over.
The property had been rented for seven years, but is now being sold as Tommy prefers his rental properties to be closer to his Hackney house.
Ground Force finished in 2005 and Tommy went on to appear in several other shows, but none were as popular. He continues to run his building business and is currently renovating two houses in Hackney, which he will let out.
