David Bowie tribute: Isle Of Wight Festival


L’ultima performance live in UK proprio all’Isola di Wight nel 2004. David Bowie è stato celebrato così anche al festival britannico. Le persone sono state “invitate” dall’organizzatore John Giddings a comprare una maschera di Bowie, raccogliendo in questo modo fondi per Stand Up To Cancer. “Headlining the Isle Of Wight in 2004 was his last UK show. I represented him for 30 years, so we’ll be printing Ziggy Stardust masks and selling them for Stand Up To Cancer. We’re going to print 20,000, get everyone to wear them, play a David Bowie song and remember what an incredible talent he was. the truth is there’s only one David. I’m sure loads of bands will pay tribute in their own way, but that’s up to them. Over the last 10 years, instead of saying ‘hello’, he’d just say ‘I’m not touring’, and I would say ‘I’m not asking’. He was very funny”. Splendido dunque il colpo d’occhio mentre a sorpresa Gary Kemp e Andrea Corr hanno eseguito ‘Starman’.
