Elton John paid tribute to one of his major musical influencers, David Bowie, with an instrumental of “Space Oddity.” John was performing a two-hour concert a the Wiltern Theatre in Los Angeles.

John received incredible praise from music-bible Rolling Stone who wrote:

It was a mash-up that fans and musicians have attempted for years, but John made it elegantly real, dedicating the moment to ‘the Starman.’ As the song ended, the singer-pianist stood and walked across the stage, and was handed a bouquet from the front row. John also spoke of an early connection in the two artists’ recording careers, pointing to his search for a producer and arranger to help with his self-titled second album from 1970.
