MP3: Download the 7/29/16 David Bowie Prom Tribute Concert


Ground control to major John – shape up, sir.

By Uncle Blurt

Last weekend in London, Berlin’s musical collective s t a r g a z e and its Artistic Director André de Ridder mounted a special tribute concert billed as the David Bowie Prom 2016. Joining the collective were John Cale, Marc Almond, Neil Hannon, Conor O’Brien, Laura Mvula, Paul Buchanan, Jherek Bischoff, Anna Calvi and Amanda Palmer, and everyone had a grand old time interpreting the late icon’s music. Now the entire show is available as MP3 downloads over at Big O Zine, along with printable artwork.

MP3 – Live at the Royal Albert Hall, London, UK; July 29, 2016.

The sound quality is uniformly excellent as the show was also broadcast over the airwaves via the BBC. The full tracklist is below – Amanda Palmer apparently was the standout performer, while curiously enough, John Cale was not received all that favorably by the critics in attendance.
