There will only ever be one David Bowie, he was unique in every way and an inspiration to millions. Absolute Bowie, Europe’s Finest David Bowie Tribute continue to celebrate the life and music of the Starman with a spectacular show uniting Bowie fans across the UK.
The five piece (six with added saxophone!) has toured all over Europe for the last 9 years, faithfully performing the music of David Bowie with uncanny accuracy. The audience are taken on a journey experiencing the different personas of Bowie, from Ziggy Stardust and Aladdin Sane through to The Thin White Duke and the late 80's.
"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. Enjoy." - Woody Woodmansey (Spiders from Mars)
Absolute Bowie has been voted one of the best tribute bands in the UK with their energetic (and theatrical!) stage show. Prepare to be taken from A to Z (Absolute Beginners to Ziggy!) with Stations to Station in between.
