Last night saw the David Bowie tribute show helmed by his former bandmates hit New York’s Terminal 5 with special guests. See footage, photos and the setlist below.

To celebrate what would have been Bowie’s 70th birthday, Sunday night saw Gary Oldman and generations of his collaborators team up with the likes of La Roux, Simon Le Bon, Tony Hadley and many more for a hit-packed tribute show in the late music icon’s native Brixton.

Then last night to mark the one year anniversary of death, the host of musicians performed in Bowie’s adopted home New York at the venue Terminal 5. Once again, the show was backed by all-star cast of Bowie collaborators including guitarist Earl Slick, former King Crimson frontman and and touring guitarist Adrian Belew, pianist Mike Garson, backing singers Catherine Russell and Holly Palmer and bassist Gail Ann Dorsey.
