The Great Bowie Party at Trinity Centre on Saturday 5 January 2019Posted on: 01 Jan 2019
The late, great David Bowie will be celebrated at a very special gig called, appropriately enough, The Great Bowie Party, at Bristol's Trinity Centre on Saturday 5 January 2019.
One of the most important and influential figures in 20th century music, the multi-talented Bowie was a singer, songwriter and actor famous for such iconic, classic hits as Starman, Let's Dance and Life on Mars.
He passed away two years ago but his timeless back-catalogue lives on - and what better way to celebrate the life, music and genius of this most revered and often unorthodox of performers with a weird and wonderful gala featuring all the Bowie-esque costumes, flamboyance and music you can handle.
Classic, well-known hits will rub shoulders alongside lesser-known gems for a night any Bowie acolyte (or indeed any true fan of modern pop music) can't afford to miss. Everyone is, naturally, encouraged to pay their own individual homage to the man by donning exuberant attire to get in to the spirit of things.
Bowie's hits will be performed by Bristol's very own 60-piece Fantasy Orchestra and the night will kick off at 7.30pm with a fun David Bowie Open Mic session, to which fans of all musical abilities can join in (email firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to take part).
Tickets cost £10, £12 and £15 in advance (plus booking fee) and can be snapped up here.
Trinity Centre is located at Trinity Road, Bristol, BS2 0NW. Tel. 01179 351200
