Mark Anthony is one of the best tribute acts to Prince around. Not only does he sound like him, but he also looks so much like Prince you would be forgiven for having to look twice!

First appearing in Stars In Their Eyes back in the 90s, he quickly sprang to fame and was the first tribute act to appear on BBC Top Of The Pops.

Mark had the honour of meeting the real Prince and his band, when promoters invited him along to one of The Prince concerts held at Wembley Arena.

He will be performing at Buxton Opera House on Thursday, June 21, accompanied by a live band. Expect all the hits such as Kiss, Purple Rain, 1999, Little Red Corvette, Raspberry Beret and more. Mark will also recreate some of the best known scenes from Prince’s music videos.

Tickets for Mark Anthony as Prince are priced at £25, discounts available. Call Buxton Opera House box office, tel. 01298 72190 or visit: www.buxtonoperahouse.org.uk
