Arcade Fire open Panorama Festival with David Bowie tribute – Watch


Arcade Fire yesterday performed their first US show of 2016, at the inaugural Panorama Festival. Following their headline session, they paid tribute to the music star, who passed away earlier this year.

Along with their special guests, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, the indie rock band launched in a tribute of Bowie’s music, including ‘Heroes’, ‘Suffragette City’ and ‘Rebel Rebel’, all while a giant screen broadcast an enlarged image of Bowies’ iconic album Heroes. At the same time, they led a second-line parade around the crowd, instruments in hand.

This marks the second time that Arcade Fire have performed a tribute to David Bowie since his passing. In January, the band and Preservation Hall previously led a traditional second line parade in honour of the rock legend, and in March, the band’s lead Win Butler performed ‘Fame’ as part of the Okeechobee Festival in Florida.
