Many artists have paid tribute to Prince since his death, either on social media or during live performances. Bruce Springsteen opened his New York gig on Saturday by performing a passionate version of ‘Purple Rain’ while Noel Gallagher dedicated ‘Live Forever’ to him during a gig in Glasgow.

Elsewhere Mumford and Sons and The 1975 also made nods to the late star as news of his passing broke. Chris Martin played ‘Raspberry Beret’ with a group of school children at a charity fundraiser.

In a statement published on her website, Kate Bush described Prince as “playful” and “mind-blowingly gifted.”

Meanwhile, President Barack Obama stated “Today, the world lost a creative icon” while musicians including Madonna, Paul McCartney, Mick Jagger, Frank Ocean, The Weeknd and Katy Perry lead the tributes on social media.
