When Prince came to London a few years ago, he played more than 20 nights at the vast O2 arena.Details are being released in a trickle, but Prince said he planned to play "iconic" venues along the lines of music club the Bag o' Nails -- where Jimi Hendrix once played -- storied rock venue Electric Ballroom and Ronnie Scott's jazz club.Later, Prince and the band showed off its funk-laced, punk-edged sound in an unannounced late-night set at the Electric Ballroom, a landmark venue in north London's music heartland of Camden.Drummer Hannah Ford said the band sometimes jammed for 12 hours or more in days and nights of music interspersed with games of ping pong."And ping pong," added Prince.For 55-year-old Prince -- a genre-bending musical pioneer and outrider for more than three decades -- the unusual promotional tour reflects a determination to do things his own way.
