Last night saw the David Bowie tribute show helmed by his former bandmates and Gary Oldman hit New York’s Terminal 5 with special guests. See footage, photos and the setlist below.
To celebrate what would have been Bowie’s 70th birthday, Sunday night saw generations of his collaborators team up with the likes of La Roux, Simon Le Bon, Tony Hadley and many more for a hit-packed tribute show in the late music icon’s native Brixton.
Then last night to mark the one year anniversary of death, Oldman and the host of musicians performed in Bowie’s adopted home New York at the venue Terminal 5. Once again, the show was backed by all-star cast of Bowie collaborators including guitarist Earl Slick, former King Crimson frontman and and touring guitarist Adrian Belew, pianist Mark Garson, backing singers Catherine Russell and Holly Palmer and bassist Gail Ann Dorsey.
They were joined by returning guest vocalists Gary Oldman, Bernard Fowler, Mr Hudson, Angelo N***a Stardust’ Moore, Gaby Moreno and Joe Sumner – but this time with the additions of Living Colour, singer-songwriter and ‘Glee’ star Darren Criss, Kate Pierson of the B52s, Canadian singer-songwriter Emm Gryner and more.Read more: Why Bowie’s amazing band are the real stars of the ‘Celebrating David Bowie’ tribute show

The crowd sings ‘Modern Love’
After the encore, the audience sings Modern Love as the musicians take smartphone pictures of us. An incredible, magical 3-hour concert celebrating Bowie's music, and probably a once-in-a-lifetime reunion of past band members, plus guest artists. So much love and positive energy. Bowie would approve. #celebratingdavidbowie #davidbowie #bowie #concert #music #rock #rocknroll #terminal5 @terminal5nyc #tour #livingcolour @livingcolourofficial #nyc #newyork #manhattan #newyork_instagram #musicians
