In the wake of Prince’s passing, numerous artists have paid tribute to him, both on social media and at their own concerts. On Saturday night, bathed in purple light, Bruce Springsteen began the first of his two shows at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center with Purple Rain, as Billboard points out. Springsteen usually begins his shows with Meet Me in the City from The Ties That Bind: The River Collection.
Bruce Springsteen has made his Purple Rain cover available as a free download. .
