A celebration of David Bowie’s hits from A to Ziggy

A CELEBRATION of David Bowie is coming to the New Victoria Theatre in Woking on Friday 20 May.

Initially called SpaceBoy, the tribute act was reinvented as Bowie Experience.

It stars performer Ollie Slee, who says he’s been enjoying being able to perform to a live audience once again: “Theatres have been closed for so long and it’s so much fun getting back out there – especially seeing as the audiences will be full of Bowie fans who enjoy his music just as much as we do on stage!”

And does he have a favourite Bowie song and era?

“If I had to choose just the one song it would probably be Starman, however if you asked me tomorrow I am sure I’d give you a different answer as I’ve so many favourites!

“My favourite Bowie era would probably have to be early 80’s Bowie – Let’s Dance, Modern Love etc. Musically, I love the funky bass riff in Fashion.

“In terms of costume, I would say either the Ziggy Stardust striped jumpsuit with those awesome red boots or the iconic yellow suit with that loose polka dot bow tie – effortlessly cool.”

Bowie fans can expect to hear many of the hits like Space Oddity, Starman, Fashion, Life on Mars, China Girl, Rebel Rebel, Golden Years, Modern Love, All the Young Dudes, Let’s Dance and Heroes.

However, you may not get to hear your favourite song, as Bowie recorded 26 studio albums, 21 live albums, 46 compilation albums, 10 extended plays, 128 singles, three soundtracks and 12 box sets. There’s plenty to choose from.

The show starts at 7.30pm. For tickets, visit https://www.atgtickets.com/shows/bowie-experience/new-victoria-theatre
