Watch Madness cover David Bowie during their Pyramid Stage set

The legendary ska band honoured the late musician during their Glastonbury performance

Madness paid tribute to David Bowie with a cover of ‘Kooks’ during the Glastonbury set today (June 25).

Performing on the Pyramid Stage at 16:30pm, the London six-piece drew a huge crowd to the festival’s main arena as the sun shone down on the Worthy Farm site.

Towards the end of their set, frontman Suggs took a moment to address the crowd to introduce their tribute to Bowie. “On the subject of families and bringing up kids, we wanted to play this song for a lot of reasons,” he said before the band launched into the cover of the 1971 track.

Once they’d finished, Suggs clarified that it was their special tribute to “the late, great David Bowie”.

This special cover has added to the numerous tributes to Bowie’s legacy that are present at this year’s Glastonbury – most notably, the famous Aladdin Sane slash, which already adorns the top of the Pyramid Stage.
