Prince performed two sold-out concerts at Atlanta, Georgia’s Fox Theatre last week in what would be his final performances before his death. The singer and multi-instrumentalist was found dead at his Minneapolis home on Thursday morning at the age of 57.
Twitter user Jake Reuse attended what turned out to be the singer’s final concert, and posted some short clips of the final performance of “Purple Rain,” perhaps the singer’s most well-known song:

Prince had been battling health problems recently. Last week, the singer’s private plane was forced to make an emergency landing in Illinois so he could receive medical attention.
The singer appeared at a dance party close to his Paisley Park home in Minneapolis last week, where he reassured attendees that he was feeling better and in good spirits.
“Wait a few days before you waste any prayers,” the singer told the crowd, according to TMZ.
Prince sold more than 100 million albums worldwide since the start of his music career in the mid-70s, making him one of the best-selling artists of all time.
