David Bowie’s music filled a Toronto concert hall Tuesday night, as nearly 900 fans, still reeling over news of his death Sunday from cancer at 69, packed the Opera House.
Holy Holy, a band comprised of former Bowie collaborators, decided to go on with the tour to honour the pop-rock icon and performed many songs from his 1970’s album catalogue.
Fans recounted the show as an amazing trip down memory lane.
Bowie’s longtime producer Tony Visconti told the crowd, “There is no better way to work through grief (than) through music. Music is magic.”
Visconti worked on many of Bowie’s albums, including the original Holy Holy single in 1971 and his last album Blackstar.
Due to overwhelming demand, Holy Holy will hold a second already sold out show at the Opera House Wednesday.
