David Bowie will be honoured with a tribute concert in New York later this year, with some legendary musicians set to take to the stage.

Sir Paul McCartney and Sir Mick Jagger – pictured above with the iconic performer in 1986 at the Prince’s Trust 10th Birthday Party – are amongst those expected to remember the star.

The event – named The Music of David Bowie – was already set to take place at Carnegie Hall before the singer died on Monday, but following his passing, the 31st March event will now be a memorial show.

According to the Daily Star, The Beatles and Rolling Stones legends are expected to join the likes of Sir Elton John as part of the line-up.

Meanwhile, a statement on the event’s website reads: “The unexpected death of David Bowie has turned this tribute, which we have worked on for the past 7 months, into a memorial concert…

“This year’s concert will certainly be remembered as a poignant celebration of his music by his friends, peers, and fans.

“We are deeply saddened by the news. The timing of our public on-sale date is bizarre in its timing and the show is taking on many more emotions. RIP David and may God’s love bewith you.”
