Illness and death

On April 15, 2016, Prince's private plane was forced to land in Illinois so he could seek medical treatment for flu-like symptoms. He performed in a concert one day later in Atlanta, Georgia. On April 21, 2016, he died at the age of 57. He was found unresponsive at his home in Chanhassen, Minnesota.
