"Prince earns 2 million dollars for one gig"

from - by Jason Gregory

Prince reportedly netted a cool £1m (approx $2,000,000 USD) recently playing a private birthday party for a US businessman.

The Purple One, who wowed UK audiences with 21 shows at London's O2 Arena over the summer, surprised guests at Florida businessman Jeffrey Soffer's 40th birthday bash with a greatest hits set.

Property developer Soffer and his 200 guests saw Prince perform hits including 'Purple Rain', 'Cream', '1999' and 'Controversy'.

But Prince's pay cheque isn't even the largest of the year for a private function - George Michael was paid £1.5m by a Russian billionaire at the start of the year.
