An orchestral tribute evening dedicated to the music of the late David Bowie is set to descend upon the State Theatre in Sydney on Saturday, December 19th.
We Can Be Heroes will feature the 24-piece Symphony Orchestra performing the most beloved cuts from his expansive archive including ‘Space Oddity’, ‘Starman’, ‘Under Pressure’, ‘Let’s Dance’, ‘Rebel Rebel’, ‘Heroes’, ‘Life On Mars’, ‘Fame’, ‘Changes’ and many more.
The guest vocalists that have stepped up to the challenge of honouring the Thin White Duke include Steve Kilbey from cult alt-rock heroes The Church, Jeff Duff and Chris Cook.
We Can Be Heroes will see the acclaimed George Ellis as conductor. Ellis has previously worked alongside legends like Lou Reed, Hans Zimmer, Alex Lloyd, Augie March, Human Nature, Megan Washington, Josh Pyke and many more on marrying the worlds of pop and rock with luscious orchestral arrangements.
Ellis has also put together tribute evenings for acts like The Beatles, Queen, Fleetwood Mac, George Michael, Roy Orbison, ABBA and The Bee Gees.
We Can Be Heroes will play for one night only on Saturday, December 19th, at the State Theatre in Sydney so best get in quick David Bowie fans.
