TORONTO _ A fan frenzy about a surprise Toronto show from Prince seemed to fizzle Tuesday afternoon when Live Nation confirmed that the Purple One would not be playing Massey Hall.

Rumours about a “pop-up show” by the singer began to spread earlier in the day after this quickly deleted tweet from Prince’s band, 3rdEyeGirl: “4th day of November, we need a purple high: OTNOROT CALLING…”

Photos of lineups outside Massey Hall were already circulating on social media by Tuesday morning.

The pop legend earned plaudits for a long medley performed during Saturday’s “SNL,” hosted by Chris Rock.

Prince previously lived in the Toronto area, and 3rdEyeGirl guitarist Donna Grantis _ who shared an extended solo with the seven-time Grammy winner during the “SNL” performance _ is from nearby Mississauga.

Prince released his latest record, “Art Official Age,” in September.
