Ailing David Bowie Made One Last Trip To London Before Passing Away
After he was diagnosed with terminal liver cancer , David Bowie paid homeland London, U.K. a final visit.
For his trip in 2014, Bowie reportedly took his family — wife Iman and daughter Alexandria — to the Tower of London. The happy threesome made there way through crowds unnoticed, enjoying Bowie’s final journey across the pond.
As Sassy Reign previously reported, the ailing music icon, turned 69 shortly before his death.
The shocking news of his passing was first released on Bowie’s social media pages late Sunday night.
“David Bowie died peacefully today surrounded by his family after a courageous 18-month battle with cancer,” the official statement read. “While many of you will share in this loss, we ask that you respect the family’s privacy during their time of grief.”
Knowing full well that the end was near, Bowie made a final appearance in early December at the New York City premiere of Lazarus, his off-Broadway musical.
The “Space Oddity” hit-maker managed to continue with solo work throughout his fight against cancer, creating and releasing the album Blackstar, his final, haunting goodbye.
The album made its official debut on Bowie’s birthday, just two days before he died. A snap from his last trip to London was also shared on Facebook that day.
