NETHERLANDS :Train passengers take a virtual reality journey through the life of the British pop star David Bowie, which is exhibited in a 'Virtual Bowie Coupe' in the train from Zwolle to Groningen, on January 8, 2016. The train travels on the occasion of an action by the Groninger Museum, which celebrated the 69th anniversary of the singer and the release of his new album 'Black Star'. In the last song on the album, Lazarus, David Bowie is comparing himself with Biblical person Lazarus of Bethany (John 11:1-16), whom Jesus raised from death. Bowies music will live on through his countless fans. PHOTO by AFP/ ANP/ Remko de Waal
