Arcade Fire have released video of the David Bowie tribute parade they led through the streets of New Orleans shortly after the icon’s death.
The history of Arcade Fire and David Bowie goes back to 2005, when the band appeared on the British/U.S. television special “Fashion Rocks”, on which Bowie joined them for “Wake Up”. This recording, as well as recordings of the band’s collaboration on Bowie’s “Life on Mars” and “Five Years,” were made available on the iTunes Music Store in a virtual live EP. The same trip to New York City took them to the Late Show with David Letterman and a concert in Central Park. The Central Park show featured a surprise appearance by Bowie.
