Where were you when you heard that David Bowie had died? Looking back at 2016, for all of the shocks that that particular year elicited, in some ways the first of them was still the most shocking.

It wasn’t just that nobody was even vaguely aware that he was seriously ill. It wasn’t that, having just released yet another outstanding album to unanimous critical acclaim, here was an artist cut down in his prime.

The Diamond in Sutton-in-Ashfield will be hosting a tribute concert on January 12 to mark the first anniversary of the great man’s death.

Rebel Rebel, the UK-based leading tribute to David Bowie, will be at the Stoney Street-based venue to celebrate his life and works.
