Hundreds of Brussels residents last night (11 January) flocked to the Grand Place, the city’s historic main square to pay tribute to David Bowie.
Bowie’s shock death yesterday at the age of 69 led to all-night vigils in Brixton, London, New York, and Berlin.
Brussels’ authorities approved a plan to play the Starman hitmaker’s greatest hits in the Grand Place from 6pm to 10pm.
The music was accompanied by a “Sound and Vision” light show. Each song was greeted by applause from the fans who braved blustery weather to remember their hero.
The tribute was welcomed by many. One resident said, “Well done Brussels – you literally rock!”
