The Four Out Of Five rockers have recalled the time that the Ziggy Stardust icon made room for their family.
Frontman Alex Turner and drummer Matt Helders recalled how they caused the late Ziggy Stardust icon to leave a VIP area so the band's friends and family could sit down at their New York gig.
"They had tables up the top for guests and VIP guests and I think Bowie was sat there with whoever he came with," Turner told the BBC.
"And our tour manager didn't even realise and he moved him so my brother and his wife could sit there and watch it and have a better view.
"He didn't say anything like, 'I'm David Bowie' - he just moved politely and then came to say hello afterwards."
