UPDATE: Prince Doing Fine, Releasing New Music, And Thanking Fans


As we reported earlier, Prince was hospitalized early Friday morning. The hospitalization had fans in frenzy because his plane had to make an emergency landing for him to receive care. Turns out, Prince was only hospitalized for a few hours as he continues to fight off the remains of the flu.

Early Saturday morning in celebration for the prayers and well wishes Prince announced a surprise that night at Paisley park.

Those that attended the Paisley Park Party adhered to a strict no phones policy but there was one sneaky photo snapped.

The party at the park consisted of DJ Purple Pam and cookies as a thank you from Prince for fans. Prince did not perform at the party. Instead of performing he showed off his new piano and guitar from Prince’s tweet In addition, he played 30 minutes from his Atlanta shows that will be included in his upcoming live album project. The live album will be comprised of performances from his The Piano & A Microphone tour.

He thanked fans for their concern and said, “When you hear things like you have recently, give it a few days. Save your prayers up.”

So let that be a lesson to you. Don’t take your pop icons for granted. Get out there and see Prince on this tour. Stop messing around. You got Prince on your concert bucket list, get it handled. If we’ve learned anything from losing Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston it’s there’s no guarantee of another tour.
