Following a series of exclusive gigs in London and Manchester in February, Prince has announced he will be returning to the UK for an arena tour in May.
"Following a series of acclaimed, spontaneous and intimate UK shows earlier this year Prince will headline his first regional UK arena dates since 1995", read his statement.
Prince will be joined by his backing band 3RDEYEGIRL in Birmingham, Manchester, Glasgow and Leeds, but not in the capital city of London where the majority of his February shows were held.
It went on: "These exclusive arena shows with 3RDEYEGIRL in Birmingham, Manchester, Glasgow and Leeds are his first since his sold out residency at The O2 London in 2007."
Tickets go on sale 2 May at midday.
