The legend is up and about again...

David Bowie has made his first public appearance since undertaking emergency heart surgery.

The legendary singer was recently diagnosed with an acutely blocked artery which required emergency surgery. He underwent heart surgery in Germany.

Pictures recently posted on the star’s official website show David Bowie out for the first time since his hospitalisation.

The singer was snapped by photographers in New York’s Chinatown yesterday (July 27), chatting with fans and local police, and watching people play the game Mah Jong.

David Bowie is expected to start working again next month.

He said: “I’m so pissed off because the last ten months of this tour have been so fucking fantastic. Can’t wait to be fully recovered and get back to work again. I tell you what, though, I won’t be writing a song about this one.”
