A tribute evening for the late David Bowie is being held at the Northern Rivers Hotel in Lismore tomorrow.

Organisers said the evening would include some live performances followed by back-to-back Bowie tracks.

‘He has returned to his Mothership, leaving us mere mortals with a lifetime of memories, organisers said.

‘Let’s play his music loudly and raise our glasses to the stars.’

The evening begins at 5pm and goes until 11pm.

Meawhile, David Bowie’s family have announced that they are planning a private funeral for the late icon.

His family posted a note titled “Thank you” on Bowie’s websites as well as his social media pages on Thursday.

‘The family of David Bowie is currently making arrangements for a private ceremony celebrating the memory of their beloved husband, father and friend,’ it reads.

‘They ask once again that their privacy be respected at this most sensitive of times.’

Bowie died on Sunday aged 69 after battling cancer for 18 months.

The family on Thursday said: “We are overwhelmed by and grateful for the love and support shown throughout the world.”

Bowie released a new album called Blackstar last week. It’s topped the US iTunes’ albums chart.
