For his third and final number at “Fashion Rocks,” David did “Five Years” with the Arcade Fire as his backing band. (They did not do “Fashion,” a pity that.)

According to my calculations, this was Bowie’s last performance of one of his own compositions (unless you count the snippet of the Extras “Pug Nosed Face” song he would warble while introducing Ricky Gervais a few years hence). It’s not a bad way to go out.
