Are you a fan of Prince? If so, you may want to get down to Massey Hall tonight, as the Purple Rain singer is rumoured to be playing a surprise show at the legendary venue. 

Early this morning, 3rdEyeGirl — Prince's all-female live band — tweeted the following cryptic message: "4th day of November, we need a purple high: OTNOROT CALLING…".

The tweet was then deleted shortly after 8:30 a.m. 

CBC News has been unable to confirm that the concert will indeed be taking place, but a CBC cameraman currently on scene at Massey Hall says a drum kit with Prince's infamous symbol on it is being set up on stage. The cameraman and CBC reporter were then asked to leave the venue. 

On Saturday, Prince recently played a much-applauded, extended seven-minute set on SNL with 3rdEyeGirl. 

The performance artist lived in Toronto for several years in the early 2000s.
