NME reports the delayed event ‘A Bowie Celebration‘ meant to take place on Bowie’s birthday, January 8 was unfortunately postponed for a day because of unforeseen circumstances.

Among the performers were Yungblud, who proudly shared a cover of Bowie’s ‘Life on Mars’ on Twitter with the caption: “it’s rare in this life that you meet someone who shaped your whole existence,” he captioned his tweet. “i felt like i was on a different planet last night. he was there and i was with him. it was truly one of the the greatest moments of my fookin life. thankyou for everything Starman.”

On Friday (January 8), one of Bowie’s final collaborators says the narrative of ‘Blackstar’ being the legend’s farewell record is not true. He says Bowie was working on several album ideas before his passing.

Many speculated that ‘Blackstar’ is about Bowie ‘tackling his mortality’. This comes after his last album was released two days before his death back in January 2016.

Donny McCaslin, leader of the New York jazz ensemble on the final album, thought otherwise.

“There is the narrative of ‘Blackstar’ being this farewell, which I totally get. But that coexists with the fact that he was just so creative. He was planning on doing more,” McCaslin told NME.Follow us on Social Media
