This follows news of planned David Bowie tribute concerts at Carnegie Hall in NYC (March 31-April 1), featuring The Roots, The Mountain Goats, Cyndi Lauper, Michael Stipe, Cat Power, Perry Farrell and Jakob Dylan.
Win Butler--Arcade Fire's frontman--had played and collaborated with Bowie, and released a statement following the musician's death on Sunday:
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. I will take to the grave the moments we shared; talking, playing music and collaborating as some of the most profound and memorable moments of my life. 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.
