Bowie Experience, the most successful David Bowie tribute show is back with a brand new production – The Golden Years Tour.  The show features all of the pop icon’s greatest hits, and continues to provide audiences with an unforgettable journey of sound and vision through David Bowie’s golden years.

Bowie Experience has become the world’s favourite and most authentic tribute and continues to amaze audiences across the globe. The ultimate tribute show, the Bowie Experience show pays great attention to the sound and feel of the music, complete with new authentic costumes, songs and stage set.

Laurence Knight, plays Bowie in the show, a vocalist, actor and multi-instrumentalist who has performed all over globe during the past eighteen years of touring, with performances at the official 'David Bowie Is" Exhibition at The V&A London and The Royal Albert Hall.

Joined by his amazing co-cast members, Bowie Experience recreates the magic of Bowie with all the hits from A to Ziggy including Space Oddity, Starman, Fashion, Life on Mars, China Girl, Rebel Rebel, Golden Years, Modern Love and Let’s Dance.

With a multi decade spanning career, the late, great David Bowie is recognised as one of the UK’s most influential and radical musical exports.  His first hit was the song "Space Oddity" in 1969. The original pop chameleon, Bowie became a fantastical sci-fi character for his breakout Ziggy Stardust album. He later co-wrote "Fame" with Carlos Alomar and John Lennon which became his first American No. 1 single in 1975.

1980 saw the release of ‘Scary Monsters’, an album that looked to update Bowies original ‘Space Oddity’. Three years later saw the release of ‘Let’s Dance’.   The 90s saw Bowie create a side-project with musicians Reeves Gabrels, Tony Fox Sales and Hunt Sales known as ‘Tin Machine’ which went on to sell two-million albums.

Bowie sadly passed away on January 10, 2016 much to the dismay of his fans and those he had influenced throughout the years. 

Join the Bowie Experience for a celebration of the true legend’s amazing career.
