The Ryde Dyvine is the second part of a two-day US TV-special broadcast by ABC on 19 December 1992. The show was produced by Paisley Park Enterprises and broadcast as part of the ABC In Concert '91 series, preceded by the ACT I TV-special on 18 December 1992.

The special is a performance film based loosely around the story of Troy Beyer reading an invitation (with some lyrics that ended up on Come recorded the following month) she received from Prince to be his guest at "The Ryde Dyvine". It pics up after the events in the ACT I TV-special, as she is now wearing the clothes Prince wore when he was making out with her in the special broadcast the day before. Upon entering the Paisley Park Studios soundstage, Troy finds out she is supposed to be the 'guest host' rather than 'guest'. As this is not what she has bargained for, she sets out to find Prince within the Paisley Park complex. Her quest to find him is intertwined with performance footage of Carmen Electra, George Clinton, Rosie Gaines, and Mavis Staples. Eventually she makes her way back to the sound stage as The New Power Generation starts performing and Prince enters in his yellow BMW. From there on the TV-special again more or less continues the story of the ACT I aired the previous day, with Mayte being in the audience as 'the princess'. At the end of the show Prince leaves the soundstage in his BMW. Before exiting he gives a heart shaped note to Troy Beyer. After the credits it is revealed that it says 'Love Is God, God Is Love'.

Live footage was filmed at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota somewhere in the first week of December 1992.
