On April 7, Prince was scheduled to perform at Atlanta’s Fox Theatre, but pulled out and rescheduled the following week due to illness. A week later on April 12, Prince didn’t offer an update on his condition, but did tweet a photo of a purple piano:
Two days later, Prince showed up for those rescheduled performances and offered an emotional performance to his fans, apologizing for canceling the first shows. The next day, on April 15, his plane made an emergency landing to rush the star to the hospital, notesPEOPLE. TMZreportsthat Prince overdosed on Percocet and the plane landed so EMTs could give him a “save shot” at the airport. He still took to Twitter to rejoice in the performance from the night before.
