You wait months for one secret gig in London, and then two monumental shows come along at once.
Noel Gallagher and Prince competed for the hottest ticket in town, with the former Oasis star playing to 200 people at Dome Tufnell Park while the US singer performed at Koko in Camden.
But Gallagher appeared to graciously accept defeat, finishing a one-hour set and telling fans he had to “dash off” before heading 10 minutes down the road to watch Prince’s gig.
The Britpop artist, 47, played songs from forthcoming album Chasing Yesterday and finished with Oasis hit Don’t Look Back In Anger. The gig was a warm-up before an arena tour next month which will culminate in a headline slot - his biggest ever as a solo artist - at Calling Festival in Clapham on July 4.
Down the road, Prince, 56, was joined by his band 3RDEYEGIRL and performed a set that included Purple Rain, Let’s Go Crazy, Kiss and When Doves Cry. He finished the impromptu charity show - in aid of Autism Rocks - with a cover of Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough featuring US singer Liv Warfield.
