The Flaming Lips took to US TV’s The Late Show With Stephen Colbert to pay tribute to the late David Bowie.

Wayne Coyne and co appeared on the show on Tuesday night (April 19), performing ‘Space Oddity’, which they recently released a video for. The performance saw Coyne climb onto Chewbacca’s shoulders while singing. Watch beneath.

Following the music icon’s death in January, the Oklahoma band played a whole set dedicated to Bowie.

Flaming Lips also played at a tribute concert dedicated to Bowie earlier this month (April) in New York.

In a 2012 interview, Bowie listed The Flaming Lips as one of a number of American bands that he admires.
