MTV and VH1 are celebrating the life of David Bowie.
Beginning Monday at 3 p.m. ET, both Viacom-owned channels will air tribute programming to honor the life and career of the legendary musician and artist, who died Sunday after an 18-month battle with cancer.
MTV will run interstitials on air, as well as on their social and digital channels, from some of Bowie’s biggest MTV moments, including his 1984 VMA performance of hit song “Blue Jean” and an archival interview with Iggy Pop.
At 10 p.m., Viacom’s high-definition music channel Palladia will air David Bowie’s VH1 Storytellers and Ziggy Stardust.
VH1 Classic will air an hour of Bowie music videos beginning tonight at 12 a.m. On Tuesday (Jan. 12), the “Totally 80’s” block (which airs from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.) and the “90’s Rocked” block (which airs from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m.) will air all Bowie music videos. Ziggy Stardust will air at 10:30 p.m., and additional archival content and iconic videos are set to run later this week.
The influential singer-songwriter and producer, who died at age 69, just released his 25th album, Blackstar, on Jan. 8, which was his birthday.
