Published Feb 10, 2016If you're a Bowie fan who was itching to attend Arcade Fire's memorial parade last month but couldn't make it down to New Orleans, you're now in luck. Or at least if you're content with watching the event from the comforts of home.
Today (February 10), Arcade Fire shared a short documentary about the parade, which took place with the help of the Preservation Hall Jazz Band on January 16 in New Orleans. Attendees were instructed to "dress in you best Bowie outfit or something more strange," and as you'll see in the video below, they certainly did just that.
The parade followed Bowie's passing last month, and in the wake of his death, Arcade Fire shared the following the statement:
David Bowie was one of the band's earliest supporters and champions. He not only created the world that made it possible for our band to exist, he welcomed us into it with grace and warmth. We will take to the grave the moments we shared; talking, playing music and collaborating as some of the most profound and memorable moments of our lives. A true artist even in his passing, the world is more bright and mysterious because of him, and we will continue to shout prayers into the atmosphere he created.
