Watch David Byrne, The Roots, & Kimbra Cover David Bowie At Rock Hall Ceremony

The 2016 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony is going down at the Barclay Center in Brooklyn tonight, and the whole thing kicked off with a surprise tribute to David Bowie. David Byrne walked onstage with a bedazzled suit to perform with the Roots and Kimbra, who were both supposed to play at the all-star David Bowie tribute shows in NYC last weekend but ended up dropping out due to the producers’ “bitchassness.” Luckily, they got to put all that time they spent practicing to good use, doing a funky cover of Bowie’s “Fame” with Kimbra and Byrne trading off lead vocals. Watch below.
