David Bowie to be honoured at Brit Awards 2016

London: A tribute will be paid to "visionary and ground-breaking" David Bowie at next month's Brit Awards.

Brits chairman Max Lousada said the "extraordinary life and work" of "one of our greatest icons" would be honoured at the show, at London's O2 arena, on February 24, reported BBC online.

A memorial concert is also planned for New York's Carnegie Hall in March. The Music of David Bowie was billed as a tribute show featuring his songs, but has now been changed to a memorial.

Bowie died of cancer at the age of 69. "David Bowie was one of the most important and influential songwriters and performers ever and, like so many fans around the world, we're devastated to hear of his loss. A visionary and ground-breaking pioneer, he has inspired generations of musicians and will continue to shape music for many years to come," Lousada said.

"Naturally, we wish to honour his extraordinary life and work at the forthcoming Brit Awards and pay a fitting tribute to one of our greatest icons."

Bowie was named best British male at the 2014 Brit Awards - becoming the oldest recipient of a Brit Award in the ceremony's history.
