Prince, the Minnesota-born international superstar whose sound revolutionized pop music and put the Minneapolis scene on the map, was found dead Thursday morning at his Paisley Park studios in Chanhassen.
Tributes poured in almost immediately as the news ricocheted around the world and people poured out their shock and grief on social media. Fans gathered in the morning rain outside Paisley Park and put up makeshift memorials.
On Thursday night, fans gathered at First Avenue in Minneapolis — the club where Prince shot his film "Purple Rain" more than three decades ago — for an all-night dance party in honor of the music icon.
