The Purple One has been honoured across the world since his passing, and Bruce Springsteen has joined as well.

The Boss opened his Brooklyn show Saturday with a touching cover of Prince's iconic 1984 song, "Purple Rain"

The stage was bathed in purple light as Springsteen belted a solemn and powerful cover and the crowd sang along.

Before the music came to an end, guitarist Nils Lofgren stepped forward to deliver the track's potent guitar solo.

The song's legendary writer had been found dead in his home days before, at age 57.

To end the rendition, Springsteen faced the crowd and called out: "Prince, forever! God bless!"
