Longtime Bowie producer celebrates Bowie at Toronto concert

The Associated Press

TORONTO (AP) David Bowie's longtime producer is celebrating the late musician's life with a tribute concert, telling the audience there is no better way to work through grief than through music.

About 900 people gathered Tuesday night at a sold-out Toronto concert hall to pay tribute to the pop star who died Sunday of cancer. They heard the band Holy Holy featuring Bowie's longtime producer, bassist Tony Visconti, and former Bowie drummer, Mick (Woody) Woodmansey.

The event was scheduled months ago as part of a tour, but only sold out after Bowie's death.

Visconti addressed the crowd just before the set, saying that Monday was one of the worst days of his life after he learned of Bowie's death..

Visconti produced Bowie's last album, "Blackstar," which was released days before the singer's death.
