Starman: A Tribute to the music of David Bowie presented by Ross Tapson & Friends will take place tomorrow (Thursday, December 16, 2021) at the Northlands Bowling Club.

Presented in association with The Rhumbelow Theatre, the show starts at 19h00. (Venue opens 90 minutes before show for snacks/drinks)

David Bowie is both a star and an icon and it has been said that he will be remembered like Beethoven in 100 years’ time. The vast body of work he has produced has helped influence popular culture, especially in the UK during the 1970’s Glam Rock Era. Bowie was well-known for constantly re-inventing himself as well as his love of performance art and theatre, and many see him as a trailblazer of musical trends and pop fashion.  2021 marks the 5th year since the artist’s death in 2016.

Join Ross Tapson, Grant Halliday and Neil Ford, who have wanted to pay tribute to this leading figure in the music industry for some time. This team was recently seen in the popular tributes to Pink Floyd as well as Sting and The Police, and are pleased to welcome David Langley on keyboards.

Once again, they are joined by Durban icon Marion Loudon, who lends her stellar vocal and presence to this eclectic and colourful repertoire.

Expect to hear all Bowie’s well-known hits including Under Pressure, Life on Mars, Ziggy Stardust, All the Young Dudes, Space Oddity and Let’s Dance.
