Arcade Fire Shares Footage of David Bowie Tribute Parade (VIDEO)

Arcade Fire, a Canadian alt-rock group that collaborated with David Bowie, has released personal footage of the tribute parade they organized in January to honor the late rock legend.

With the help of the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Arcade Fire celebrated Bowie in true New Orleans fashion with a traditional second line parade through the streets of the city’s French Quarter. Megaphone in hand, Arcade Fire leader Win Butler led the crowds of Bowie mourners in a mass sing-a-long, which featured Bowie classics like “Heroes,” “Oh! You Pretty Things” and “Suffragette City.”

Arcade Fire’s video documentation of the affair includes the group’s cover of Bowie’s “Heroes.”

David Bowie was one of the band’s earliest supporters and champions,” Arcade Fire said in a statement following Bowie’s death. “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.”

Members of Arcade Fire are some of the many high-profile figures to honor the legendary musician in the weeks since his Jan. 10 passing.

During the Houston stop of her Rebel Heart Tour, Madonna performed Bowie’s classic anthem “Rebel Rebel.”  Lady Gaga will also pay homage to the artist with a special tribute performance at the Grammy Awards on Feb. 15.
