Arcade Fire have released footage from the parade the band threw in tribute to David Bowie.

The January 16 event was organised by the band and Preservational Hall Jazz Band, who led a procession through the streets of New Orleans.

Fan shot footage from the parade was posted online at the time of the parade but the band have now released their own professional clip for fans who could not be there. Watch the four minute video below, including the Arcade Fire take on Bowie’s “Heroes“.


Bowie and the Arcade Fire worked together frequently in the last years of his life. He first joined the band on stage at a Fashion Rocks concert in 2005 for a rendition of “Wake Up“, from their debut album Funeral.

Later in 2013 Bowie sang a guest vocal on the title song of Arcade Fire’s most recent album, Reflektor.
