LCD Soundsystem performed the first of two headlining sets at Coachella 2016 on Friday night, where, in addition to playing a number of their own hits, they paid homage to the late, great David Bowie and fellow Coachella performers Guns N’ Roses. James Murphy & Co. broke out their own rendition of Bowie’s “Heroes” and a snippet of GN’R’s “November Rain” during their own “New York, I Love You But You’re Bringing Me Down.” Watch a handful of fan-shot clips below.
