Arcade Fire headlined the inaugural Panorama Music Festival in New York last night, and took the opportunity to honour David Bowie during their set.
During the band’s performance of “Reflektor” (which features guest vocals by Bowie), images of the late rocker were displayed on the massive screens behind the stage.
Front man Win Butler reminisced with the audience about the first time he and the band met Bowie the first time they played in Manhattan, reports Entertainment Weekly, and he admitted he still feels the loss.
“It f***ing hurts every day that he’s not here,” Butler told the crowd. “Wherever you are, David, we love you. Thank you so f***ing much for your music.”
While Butler offered praise to Bowie, he also took some time during the show to serve up some scorn for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.
“Donald Trump will never, ever be the f***ing President,” he said to thunderous applause. “You can’t let some f***ing KKK sympathizer be president!”
