You don’t have to be rich to see this Prince tribute show. The star of Prince’s life-story documentary When Doves Cry is appearing in a new, hit-packed concert show at Churchill Theatre, writes Laura Burgoine…

Mark Anthony performs all the million-selling hits recorded by Prince including Purple Rain, 1999, Kiss, Raspberry Beret, When Doves Cry, Little Red Corvette and The Most Beautiful Girl in the World.

The event is being staged by Artistes International Management (AIM). Its MD David Halford says Mark bears an uncanny resemblance to “The Purple One”. “If you’ve seen a Prince docu-drama on the silver or small screen recently, the chances are it was Mark playing the part of the musical genius,” he said. “Since his breakthrough in TV’s Stars in Their Eyes, Mark has travelled the world bringing the magic of Prince to the masses: from Malta to Miami, Berlin to Barcelona, Zurich to Amsterdam and on to St Petersburg.”

A true Prince fanatic, Mark’s painstaking attention to detail promises “an unmissable theatrical treat which features the costumes, the moves and music that shaped a generation.”
Hot off the heels of Channel 5’s biopic The Prince Story, Mark is presenting his biggest concert tour ever.

“With so many hits to squeeze in, as the song goes ‘please don’t sue us if we go too fast’,” said David.
