During Friday’s set at Governors Ball in New York City, Beck paid tribute to Prince by covering his 1985 hit “Raspberry Beret.” It was a repeat performance from the “Wow” singer-songwriter, who covered the song earlier in May at the Beale Street Music Festival in Memphis, Tennessee.
Following the performance, Beck recalled meeting the Purple Man at the Grammys. “When I saw him, I was overwhelmed,” he said. “After he passed, I looked up that photo,” he added. “I found out he had a big smile on his face…it made me happier than anything.” He then launched into a cover of the Purple One’s “1999.”
