The entertainment world went into mourning yesterday when it was announced that iconic singer-songwriter and performer David Bowie had passed away.
But it wasn’t long before tributes moved away from Twitter and Facebook, with fans gathering in Brixton, where Bowie lived as a boy.
Flowers and hand-written notes were left at a mural near Brixton tube station.
While images of the star were projected onto Brixton library…
And the Brixton Ritzy cinema honoured the music legend in letters above its entrance.
The O2 Academy in the area followed suit…

While Brixton department store Moreley’s marked the sad day too.

But tributes weren’t confined to Brixton. Hammersmith Apollo, where Bowie performed his final concert as Ziggy Stardust in 1973, had a message for fans.
