THE SSE Hydro, Scotland’s biggest music venue, turned purple in tribute to music legend Prince, who tragically died yesterday.

The arena staged Prince’s last Scottish gig in 2014, and was lit up in memory of one of his most famous songs, Purple Rain, during a concert by former Oasis frontman Noel Gallagher.

The rock star, now with his own band High Flying Birds, paid his own tribute on stage by blasting out the Prince hit Let’s Go Crazy.

He also dedicated Oasis hit Live Forever to the iconic musician.

Gallagher told fans: “So, I was in a band once. We had an album called Standing on the Shoulders of Giants and one of those giants was Prince.
