My final venture into the world of tribute bands.
All the gigs of my life: Gig 136 – Celebrating David Bowie, Sunday, January 8, 2017, Brixton Academy
A year on from the death of David Bowie, and on what would have been his 70th birthday, came this star-studded party in tribute to that most wonderful man.
In August 1989, the girl with the mousy hair sat down to watch an evening of David Bowie videos, and discovered her favourite song of all time.
It was May 1989. I was 14, and a new Bowie obsessive, so it was a thrill to discover that he was back with new music! I had a bit of a shock in store.
One evening in December 1988, “Labyrinth” was shown on Singaporean TV. As it was on a bit late for a school night, my mum recorded it so I could watch it the following weekend.
All the gigs of my life: Gig 90 – David Bowie, Sunday, June 13, 2004, Seaclose Park, Newport (Isle of Wight Festival)
My last David Bowie gig – and the UK’s as well.
The end of an overwhelming, emotional rollercoaster of a Bowie tour.
My 2003 Bowie adventures continued as I reached my penultimate gig of the A Reality tour.
‘Oh god. All I can say is, round about two hours ago, DAVID BOWIE SMILED AT ME!’ Welcome, one and all, to the tale of the best night of my life.
My second show of the A Reality tour, and an overwhelmingly emotional night.
