Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band "Purple Rain" (Prince cover)
Published Apr 25, 2016The shock passing of Prince last week has led to numerous tributes coming from within the music world. Also sending out his love and respect for the Artist was Bruce Springsteen, who saluted Prince in Brooklyn over the weekend with a live performance of "Purple Rain." If you weren't in attendance, the cover is now up online as a free download.
Performed at Brooklyn's Barclays Center on Saturday (April 23), the E Street Band's take on the classic cut has leader Springsteen's familiar, throaty cry subbing for Prince's, but still plays out quite faithful. It's a performance of an already ultra-emotional tune, which comes bittersweet following the death of a music legend.

Springsteen will soon be selling the rest of his concert at Barclays through his website.
