Millions of fans from all over the world have paid tribute to David Bowie, who passed away aged 69 after battling cancer. Reports said that he fought back from six heart attacks in the past year to make his final album.
To celebrate his life, a street party has been organised at his birthplace where hundreds are expected to sing and dance the night away. A local blog called Brixton Buzz is hosting the Let’s Dance party in a pub round the corner from where Bowie was born.
A post on Facebook about the event said: "Bowie's time on this earth may be over, but he sure left us some great music. Today is a day to gather together and celebrate.
"Please share with anyone you think would be able to help with music or any other element of this event - bring instruments, speakers, food and most importantly love.
Other local pubs and restaurants will also hold Bowie nights.
The Prince Albert pub posted on Facebook: "Tonight, we’re going to drink, dance and celebrate Brixton’s finest son with a night of David Bowie music in the Prince Albert on Coldharbour Lane Brixton – not far from where the great man was born.
"We’ll be playing his hits, album tracks, obscurities and more – plus some of his musical influences and the artists he inspired – and screening videos and photos of the great man.
"Please come and join us and share a toast toast to the genius that was David Robert Jones, aka David Bowie. We loved his music and are devastated by his death.
