Springsteen Goes Purple in Brooklyn

28th April Update:
For some unknown reason Bruce pulled the official version of his performance of Purple Rain off of You Tube. I have added another Multicam mix that I found to replace it!
At the start of The River Tour Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band payed tribute to David Bowie with a performance of Rebel Rebel in Pittsburgh, and then three nights later in Chicago it was Glenn Frey with a intimate reading of Take It Easy. Both songs were featured near the back end of the set.

But on Saturday night at Brooklyn's Barclays Center they opened the show bathed in Purple light paying tribute to Prince with a mind blowing version of Purple Rain. I almost posted this yesterday morning but was hoping for a better quality video to appear and a multi-camera mix version appeared late yesterday (thanks to Olli King) and today at some point Bruce released an official video of it (see below...apologies Olli for removing your version Doug 26/04)

Oh and Bruce has just released a free download of Purple Rain for everyone as well. Check it out here: Purple Rain Download.
