The world lost a legend and was in collective shock when Prince died on Thursday at the age of just 57. Immediately, social media lit up with heartfelt tributes, as celebs and regular folks alike shared poignant memories of the artist and his music. Purple also reigned in the real world, off of social media, as monuments and landmarks paid tribute to the fallen star.

Los Angeles concert venue the Forum, where Prince famously performed a month of shows, went purple. So did other L.A. buildings like City Hall.

Purple lights bathed the High Roller ferris wheel in Las Vegas, where the performer had an earlier residency.
