We Can Be Heroes — The Music of Bowie Orchestrated
Hear the music icon's tunes performed by a lineup of singers — and with a symphony orchestra.
Every second, minute, hour, day, week, month and year could use a little more David Bowie. For one night in December, Sydneysiders can add a big dose of the music icon's tunes to their evening — and in a mighty fine way, too. iOTA, Jeff Duff, Chris Cooke and The Church's Steve Kilbey will all sing Bowie's tunes, and a 24-piece symphony orchestra will back them up. It's called We Can Be Heroes — The Music of Bowie Orchestrated, because of course it is.
It'll be a greatest hits package, so prepare to revisit everything from 'Space Oddity', 'Starman' and 'Rebel Rebel' to 'Fame', 'Changes' and 'Ashes to Ashes'. 'Heroes' will get a spin, because of course it will, and 'Let's Dance' will probably resonate differently this year — as might 'Under Pressure'.
It all takes place on Saturday, December 19 at the State Theatre across two performances, with tickets on sale now and capacity capped at 1000 people per gig. Expect to celebrate everything that made the man also known as Ziggy Stardust and the Thin White Duke such a unique marvel — and to add something fun, live and with a crowd to your 2020 calendar.
