That Time David Bowie Sung “Imagine” In Concert In John Lennon’s Honour

The last show of the Serious Moonlight tour, 8th December, 1983, was the 3rd anniversary of John Lennon’s death, whom David Bowie and guitarist Earl Slick knew. Slick suggested a few days prior to the show that they play “Across the Universe” as a tribute; but Bowie said, “Well if we’re going to do it, we might as well do ‘Imagine’.” They performed the song on the final night of the tour as a tribute to their friend.
