Lianne La Havas: Prince playing at my house ‘like a storm’


Lianne La Havas claims it was "like a storm had hit" when Prince played an impromptu gig at her house on Tuesday (04.02.14).

The 24-year-old star saw her east London home turned into a concert venue when the ‘Purple Rain’ singer and his new band 3RDEYEGIRL bombarded her pad for his Hit & Run tour.

She explained: "It’s been a weird few hours but a lot of fun.

"They put amplified equipment in my lounge, Prince came, conquered and left. It was like a storm had hit."

The 55-year-old star – who is playing a series of secret guerilla gigs at small venues across London throughout the month of February – performed two acoustic tracks in Lianne’s front room, including new single ‘PretzelBodyLogic’.

Lianne explained: "His plan is music and music alone. He just wants to play and promote his new band and make a name for them."

However, Prince’s turn-up at Lianne’s house wasn’t completely out of the blue as the pair have met before.

She told the Daily Star newspaper: "Prince and I had hung out before in my old house, he enjoyed my music.

"I had always had music jams at my house, it’s a way of having a conversation with musicians.

"So this was a way of Prince doing something he had never done – he just thought let’s go back to basics."
