Six days after David Bowie died 900 fans and 117 performers packed London’s Union Chapel for an unforgettable 5 hour celebration of his life. This is a film of that gig and how – almost by miracle – it came about
The atmosphere was an emotionally charged maelstrom of celebration and mourning.
More than a thousand Bowie fans – some music legends in their own right – singing their hearts out in the dimmed Gothic beauty of the Union Chapel in North London.
It was always going to be moving but what made this five-hour gig so powerful was the fact it was held just six days after Bowie’s death. People were still reeling.
Emotions were still raw.
