Toronto pays tribute to David Bowie

Fans in Toronto, and all over the world, are mourning over the news that David Bowie passed away at the age of 69 today.

Perhaps you walked past the Bowie graffiti wall near Bathurst Station or thought back to when we were lucky enough to have the massive David Bowie is exhibition at the AGO.

Tomorrow night in Toronto, Holy Holy, a band featuring Bowie collaborators Tony Visconti and Mick "Woody" Woodmansey, will play a scheduled show at the Opera House. They'll perform The Man Who Sold The World in its entirety along with other hits.

If you don't have tickets to that concert, you can join Choir! Choir! Choir! as it pays homage to Bowie on Tuesday and Wednesday night at Clinton's. Instead of Justin Bieber's "Love Yourself," the group will sing "Space Oddity" on both evenings.


Along with musical tributes, many others took to Twitter to express their love and admiration for Bowie.






And of course, be sure to re-watch former astronaut Chris Hadfield's poignant rendition of "Space Oddity" - a cover that he recorded in space.
