Details

David Bowie was an award-winning musician, actor, and performer. He stands tall in the Hall of Fame as one of the biggest pop culture icons of the twentieth century, selling an estimated 140 million albums worldwide.

This ultimate LIVE immersive show will celebrate 1969 to 1972: a significant period of time that covered both Bowie’s experimental phase (Space Oddity to Ziggy Stardust) and the Apollo lunar landing window.

DAVID LIVE is a British, five-piece band that has performed honest and insightful musical tributes to David Bowie since 2005. Their experienced line-up combines unique musical upbringings and is considered a favourite amongst true Bowie aficionados.

As part of our celebration we have partnered with De Montfort University, Loughborough College and Leicester College to create a never before seen exhibition of fashion, textiles, art and photography inspired by David Bowie (Free entry to this exhibition is included in your evening ticket).

19:00 — Doors Open · Bowie-inspired textiles and art exhibition open to all ticket holders.

Boosters Café will be serving hotdogs, nachos, salads, snacks, sandwiches, and hot/cold drinks, as well as a selection of beers, wines, spirits and an exclusive menu of Bowie-inspired cocktails.
