Artists Gary Kemp and Andrea Corr paid tribute to musician David Bowie at the Isle of Wight festival with a performance of his song Starman.

The Spandau Ballet guitarist and The Corrs singer teamed up to perform Starman, in honour of the late singer, who passed away in January following a secret battle with cancer, after they were introduced to the stage by promoter John Giddings, reported Female First.

12 years after Bowie last played the festival, fans came together wearing masks with his face on them as they listened to Andrea and Gary perform and he admitted to some nerves before taking to the stage.

“It was quite scary you know. Andrea and I hadn’t met before and we were playing on stage. We had only run the track back once,” Kemp said.

“It was emotional because David is gone and there were all of these people wearing masks there and singing a hymn to David Bowie’s life. Also because as a 13-year-old boy in 1973 that was a song that first introduced me to David and changed my life. David has guided everybody and his legacy is the complete history of rock since,” he added.”
