This Sunday, January 8th will mark David Bowie’s 70th Birthday. Friends and collaborators of the star are coming together to celebrate as part of a worldwide series of concerts.
Bowie’s birthplace of Brixton will be hosting an evening of wonderful music to celebrate the icon. Taking place at the O2 academy Brixton, fans travelling far and wide will be attending the now sold out concert. Those who are lucky enough to have a ticket will be surrounded by music inspired by and in the style of Bowie. A huge list of musicians will play in tribute to him including Gary Oldman – a good friend of David. Joining Oldman will be former band members of Bowie including Mike Garson, Earl Slick and Adrian Belew to name a few. More special guests are yet to be announced to join them in the celebrations of Bowie’s life.
The show will be presented by Academy Arts and proceeds from the show will benefit Children & The Arts Charity.
