Bowie tribute concert to be held in Islington tonight

David Bowie's life will be celebrated at a tribute concert this evening, a week after the musical pioneer died from cancer.

Three pews at London's Union Chapel in Islington will be reserved for friends and collaborators of the singer.

The line-up remains a closely-guarded secret, although more than 20 performers were rumored to be appearing appear.

Stefan Simanowitz, event organiser, said: "The massive response from musicians and from the public has been staggering but not surprising."
