A Night of Bowie – The Definitive Bowie Experience

David Bowie is one of music history’s most praised and successful artists, with a career that spanned four decades. Bowie continuously sought to reinvent himself, while selling an estimated 140 million albums. His genre-defying journey through a vast array of musical styles, from rock to funk, dance to ballad, always kept fans guessing what he would do next.

A Night of Bowie is a celebration of Bowie’s extensive list of memorable hits, focusing primarily (but not exclusively) on his peak years from the early ’70s to the early ’90s. The show is eerily close to hearing and seeing Bowie himself.

  • When: Friday, November 18th, from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
  • Where: Alix Goolden Performance Hall, 907 Pandora Avenue
