Woman 'cancels holiday to queue for Prince gig'

The Camden New Journal is reporting that one woman has cancelled her holiday to Turkey, in order to queue for tickets to see Prince tonight.

Ruth Newcombe is standing in the pouring rain, when she could be on a beach, even though she has no guarantee that she'll be able to see the star.

She told the paper: "no one knows if he'll really turn up or not, but we're waiting here anyway. I have done this before and he hasn't even turned up.”
