From one legend to another.
Bruce Springsteen opened up his show at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on Saturday with a cover of Prince's most iconic hit, "Purple Rain." The fitting tribute featured an epic guitar solo from guitarist Nils Lofgren, and the stage was lit with purple lights.
While fans clearly loved the cover, plenty fretted over the Boss' own health, given the recent deaths of both Prince and musician David Bowie.
"The Bruce Springsteen cover of 'Purple Rain' had the side effect of reminding me that The Boss is also mortal. Now I want to go back to bed," one Twitter user wrote.
"Dear @springsteen we are cryogenically freezing you until 2016 is over," another joked.
Of course, Springsteen isn't the only artist honoring Prince. Elton John paid his own respects at his "Million Dollar Piano" concert in Las Vegas on Saturday night, singing "I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues" while a slideshow of Prince played in the background.
"This is truly devastating news. The greatest performer I have ever seen," the "Rocket Man" singer tweeted about "When Doves Cry" singer. "A true genius... Rest in peace you purple warrior."
