David Bowie: Nothing Has Changed

Let’s dance.

On January 11, Australian time, music lovers heard the news of David Bowie's passing — and, oh boy, did the grief come thick and fast. The chameleonic performer also known as Ziggy Stardust, the Thin White Duke and Aladdin Sane was an icon for many, many reasons. And while the world will miss his inimitable presence, we'll always have his immense catalogue of tunes.

It's that rich musical legacy that David Bowie: Nothing Has Changed celebrates, with iOTA, Steve Kilbey, Deborah Conway, Adalita and Tex Perkins joining forces with the QSO for an evening to remember. Hear the group of singer-songwriters pay tribute to a legend by belting out his hits backed by a full symphony orchestra. Let's dance, indeed.

Given that the show takes its name from Bowie's 2014 compilation album, it really will be a best-of package, ranging from turning and facing the strange with 'Changes', pondering whether there's 'Life on Mars', and singing along to 'Under Pressure' while screaming "let me out". You'll tap your toes, shed tears and enjoy stellar renditions of his standout tracks — and, afterwards, there'll probably be dancing in the street.
