You might have heard about the David Bowie memorial concerts taking place in New York. Naturally, these are pretty high in demand, leaving many Bowie fans unable to attend.
The two concerts taking place there will be at Carnegie Hall on 31 March, with a second date at Radio City Music Hall on 1 April. The organisers have now confirmed that the latter performance at Radio City Music Hall will be available to watch via Skype.

A statement on the official website reads: “Due to unprecedented interest in the David Bowie memorial concert in Radio City, we have teamed up with Skype and Ammado to stream the concert around the world, in return for a small donation to our charity partners. We suggest a minimum donation equivalent to $20, or £15.”
