Tribute to a musical genius

Worcester Editorial 30th May, 2018   0

THE WORLD lost a music legend in January 2016 with the passing of David Bowie.

The Swan Theatre will play host on June 14 to Ed Blaney’s Ultimate Bowie which delivers a stunning two-hour show of Bowie classics, from Space Oddity and Let’s Dance to David’s last hit, Blackstar.

The band is not called ‘Ultimate Bowie’ for nothing, this show captures the essence and authenticity of a legend live in concert.

During his lifetime his record sales estimated at 140 million albums worldwide made him one of the world’s best-selling music artists.

In the UK, he was awarded nine platinum album certifications, eleven gold, and eight silver, releasing eleven number-one albums. In the US, he received five platinum and nine gold certifications, and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996.

In an authentic celebration and salute to David Bowie, aka Ziggy Stardust and The Thin White Duke, Ultimate Bowie will transport you across the golden years of Bowie, from Spaceboy to Superstar. Starring the remarkable Ed Blaney as the man himself, this is the UK’s No. 1 David Bowie tribute show.

A performer who easily commands the eyes of the audience every moment he is on stage, Ed blends past and present, showing the many sides of Bowie’s personality.

There is a precise attention to detail throughout; from Ed’s musical direction of his seven-piece band through to the costumes he wears to recreate Bowie in spectacular style.

The show kicks off at 7.30pm, tickets are £20 and available through the Worcester Live Box Office on 01905 611427.
