David Bowie tribute at Broadway-Lafayette Station honors 4th anniversary of his death
Just a few days after what would've been his birthday, today (1/10) marks the fourth anniversary of David Bowie's death. As Bowery Boogie points out, a Manhattan subway station that previously paid tribute to Bowie is honoring him once again to mark the occasion. Two years ago, the Broadway-Lafayette station, just a few blocks from his old Soho residence, was transformed with Bowie art to promote Brooklyn Museum's David Bowie Is exhibit. Today that station's entrance got a couple of modifications, as you can see in the image above. Someone added "to station" after the station's name, spelling out the name of Bowie's tenth studio album, and the line's letters were altered to spell out "BOWIE 4."
An alternate version of "The Man Who Sold the World," and a new Bowie graphic novel, are out now, and there's a new 40th anniversary picture disc edition of his 1980 single "Alabama Song" on the way.
Meanwhile, pay tribute to Bowie tonight at a free performance from cellist Maya Beier at NYC's Brookfield Place, where she'll perform her new reinterpretation of Blackstar. More info HERE.
