Alex Turner and Miles Kane were performing at the festival’s biggest stage this evening when they broke off from their own material to pay homage to the late musician.
They chose to perform ‘Moonage Daydream’ – first released by Bowie in 1971 and later re-recorded for his ‘Ziggy Stardust’ album – with Turner taking lead vocals for the cover as he prowled the stage, much to the delight of the huge crowd that had gathered to see his and Kane’s side project perform this evening.
