Prince attends dance party

Prince attended a $10 dance party the day after being released from hospital.

The 'Purple Rain' hitmaker - who is in the midst of his Piano & A Microphone Tour - was in the air when his flu symptoms became worse on Friday (15.04.16), prompting his private jet to make an emergency landing at Quad City International Airport in Moline, Illinois where he spent three hours being treated, but after returning home to Minnesota to recover, he wasted no time in getting out and about.

Posting a flyer for last night's (16.04.16) Paisley Park After Dark event on Twitter yesterday afternoon, Prince wrote: "2 GIVE THANX 4 THE GOOD WEATHER AND 4 ALL THE LOVE AND SUPPORT...(sic)"

According to TMZ, the 57-year-old singer was keen for people to have "living proof" that he is still alive, and he arrived at the bash to show off his new guitar and piano.

He didn't sing, but he did tell the crowd: "Wait a few days before you waste any prayers."

Prince recently revealed he is writing a memoir titled 'The Beautiful Ones'.

Telling fans about the exciting news in New York last month, he said: "The good people of Random House have made me an offer I can't refuse! It's going to be called 'The Beautiful Ones'. I literally just got off the plane. I'm going to go home and change and put some dancing clothes on. Props to my brother Harry Belafonte.

"You all still read books, right? My brother Dan - Dan Piepenbring of the Paris Review - is helping with it. He's a good critic. That's what I need. Not a yes man."
