A TOUCHING tribute to the late David Bowie has been blasted by scores of fans who branded the event “bleak” and “awful”.
Nearly 1,000 people crammed into the Union Chapel to see a range of performers offer their own takes on the Starman’s greatest hits
But some fans weren’t so keen after watching the show on a youtube live stream, and took to social media to air their grievances.
Fans of the late megastar called the four-and-a-half hour tribute show “absolute garbage”, while others accused the performances of “sucking the life out of a wonderful man”.
But despite more than a few shaky performances it wasn’t all bad – with proceeds from the show going towards Macmillan Cancer Support.
It comes as fans around the globe find their own special way to honour the memory of the late great star, who died aged 69 of cancer.
The day after the tragic news of his death shocked the world, fans amassed in Brixton for a group singalong in the Thin White Duke’s memory.
Meanwhile stateside Bowie’s recently released final album shot up the charts giving him his first US number one record.
