A charity concert was held to celebrate Beckenham boy David Bowie on what would have been his 70th birthday.

Thousands of fans attended the show at Brixton Academy to raise money for Children and The Arts charity in memory of the late singer-songwriter who died after a battle with liver cancer on January 10 last year.

Hollywood actor Gary Oldman led former band-mates and friends of the Ziggy Stardust star on stage for the sell-out show.

Simon Le Bon of Duran Duran, Spandau Ballet's Tony Hadley, Def Leppard's Joe Elliott and La Roux were among the singers to perform on a string of hits at the Celebrating David Bowie concert.

New music was also posthumously released yesterday to mark the occasion.

The music video for new release "No Plan" references Bowie's south-east London roots by beginning with a shot of Foxgrove Road, Beckenham where Bowie lived in the late 1960s.

The video stars 17-year-old actor Dwen Gyimah from Lewisham who trained at Bromley's D&B Academy of Performing Arts.

Bowie was born in Brixton in 1947 before his family moved to Beckenham in 1953.

He attended Burnt Ash Junior School in Rangefield Road before going on to Bromley Technical College, now Ravensbourne College.

After moving to Foxgrove Road, where he lived with Mary Finnigan, he set up Beckenham Arts Lab in 1969.
