Rising English singer-songwriter James Bay performed to an enthusiastic sold out audience at the Fox Theater last Friday night, April 22, 2016. Joined by Portland band JOSEPH, Bay included a simple and touching Prince tribute in his set: soaking the stage in purple light while performing the infamous guitar riff from “Purple Rain” over and over. In the words of our photographer Robert Alleyne, “It was perfect! No words, no speeches, just the music.” Enjoy the striking images from the night below.
