10. Bruce Springsteen Opens Barclays Center Show with Purple Rain
“Never meant to cause you any sorrow, never meant to cause you any sorrow,” rang clear in Bruce Springsteen’s tribute to Prince at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Saturday night. Rolling Stone notes that “Sadly, the ‘Purple Rain’ performance marked the third time the E Street Band honored a rock giant who died in 2016 with an onstage tribute, following their covers of David Bowie’s ‘Rebel Rebel’and Glenn Frey’s signature Eagles cut ‘Take It Easy.'”
