Bruce Springsteen’s Tribute to Prince

Bruce Springsteen, performing at the Barclay Center in Brooklyn, the other evening (April 23rd) paid tribute to Prince. He opened up his show washed in purple lights as he sang Purple Rain while Nils Lofgren played a mournful guitar behind him. Just a few months earlier, The Boss paid tribute to two other fallen rock heroes, David Bowie (Rebel, Rebel) and Glen Frey (Take it Easy).

  1. I have mixed feelings about “tributes.” While I cannot ascertain sincerity, I mostly trust it. And yet, when a performer honors/memorializes another by doing one of their hit songs, it often feels self-promoting. Do you know what I mean?
