However, not many may have expected them to stage such an elaborate tribute to the late musician.
On Saturday, thousands of fans gathered in the streets of New Orleans for a David Bowie memorial parade organised by Arcade Fire's Win Butler and Regine Chassagne, who live in the city.
Butler had posted a picture to Instagram on Friday, urging people to gather at the city's historic Presentation Hall at 4pm to "say goodbye properly."
People travelled from all over to attend, including - amazingly - Larry David, who was spotted in the crowd wearing a NASA jumpsuit:
