Isle Of Wight Festival honours David Bowie’s final UK performance


David Bowie‘s last ever UK concert was remembered at the Isle Of Wight festival during the weekend.

Bowie’s headline performance in 2004 at the event proved to be his final outing on British shores as he went into live retirement and a long period away from music before the release of ‘The Next Day‘ in 2013.

That album’s follow-up ‘Blackstar‘ was released at the start of this year just days before Bowie’s death, and the 2016 Isle Of Wight festival stopped to honour the late icon as ‘Heroes‘, ‘Rebel Rebel‘ and ‘All The Young Dudes‘ were shown from the 2004 concert on video screens next to the main stage.

Festival-goers had been encouraged to purchase masks throughout the weekend, raising money for Stand Up To Cancer.

Faithless and Stereophonics acted as co-headliners on the first night, with The Who following on Saturday before Queen & Adam Lambert closed it out yesterday.
