Memorabilia from the iconic musician Prince will be on display at The O2 in Greenwich giving a new insight into the superstar’s life.

Opening on October 27, My Name Is Prince will run for 21 days and celebrate the life and work of Prince Rogers Nelson.

My Name Is Prince will showcase hundreds of never before seen artefacts direct from Paisley Park, Prince’s famous Minnesota private estate.

Artefacts leaving Paisley Park for the first time include clothing from his 1984/85 Purple Rain tour and 1988/89 LoveSexy tour, wardrobe from the 1990 film Graffiti Bridge, and the Gibson L65 guitar Prince used when he made his national television debut on American Bandstand in 1980.

Other memorabilia include his Diamond studded cane from 2015, his Diamond vest worn during his 2013 V magazine shoot, and the orange Cloud guitar made for Prince’s 2007 Super Bowl halftime performance.

Prince’s sister, Tyka Nelson, said: “There are several countries that meant a lot to him. I know London was one of his favourites.

“For him to have a sold out show for 21 nights there and the record still stands today, I think it’s the perfect place to start the exhibition.

“Prince had this ability to kind of grasp you and hold you from the very first note until the last note, whether he was singing it or playing it on the piano. He kind of captivated you and you didn’t want to take his eyes of him.”

Tickets for the exhibition go on sale on 25 August and cost £25 for adults and £12 for children.
