A TRIBUTE concert with a difference will be celebrating five decades of David Bowie later this year.

New show, Absolute Bowie, will take a look at the iconic singer’s ever-changing persona from the late 1960s through to 2016 when he released his final album, Blackstar, two days before his death.

It is coming to the Pyramid on April 21.

Performed by a six-piece band the evening will consist of three separate sets and more costume changes than most theatre shows.

Audiences can enjoy all of the Starman’s greatest hits, as well as tracks from the albums David Bowie, Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, Heroes, Aladdin Sane, Hunky Dory and Young Americans, through to Heathen, Outside, Reality, Earthling and Blackstar.

The band features the vocals of John O’Neill as David Bowie, with Chris Buratti on guitar, Fabio Cashio on bass, Alex Paollilo on keyboards, Alessandro Ricardi on drums and Fiona Asbury on saxophone.

Over the past nine years, the band has enjoyed success while touring across the UK and Europe, bringing the music of Bowie to life in a theatrical style.

Mick ‘Woody’ Woodmansey, who was David Bowie’s drummer during The Spiders from Mars era, said: “Absolutely wicked. As one who was there, watching Absolute Bowie put me back there again.

“For anyone who missed it, or fans who want to relive it, I definitely recommend it. As close to the real thing that you’ll get.”

Absolute Bowie comes to the Pyramid on April 21.

Tickets are £18.50 in advance or £21.50 on the door.
