David Bowie tribute concert draws stars in Carnegie Hall


An all-star tribute concert to David Bowie, announced shortly before he died, is taking place in New York.

The concert in Carnegie Hall was announced on 10th January as a retrospective of Bowie's life.

But hours later, the singer's family announced his death from cancer. The concert then quickly sold out.

Among the acts performing are the Flaming Lips, Pixies, Debbie Harry, Cyndi Lauper and former REM singer Michael Stipe.

The annual tribute concerts, that have previously focused on acts including Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and Joni Mitchell, were set up to raise money for charity.
