On the almighty scale of Prince live appearances, this one wasn’t quite so secret when compared to Camden’s Electric Ballroom gigs and the UK shows that promptly followed.
Prince’s appearance on Arsenio Hall had been confirmed two weeks back. He took to the show last night to play a stutting rendition of ‘Funknroll’, a previously unheard track.
He topped off this rare US TV appearance with an interview on the show, where he revealed his pet peeve to be ‘strangers touching my hair.’
