It’s time to put on your red shoes and dance as we present the music of David Bowie. And you can choose the songs too!
In honour of the 30th anniversary of Bowie’s 1990 Sound+Vision tour, in which audiences around the world voted for songs by calling a hotline, Perth Symphony is opening up song selection to the public. Innovative, as wildly acclaimed as he was popular, and quite simply one of the most influential artists of the 20th century, witness the moods, colour and androgyny that continues to impact popular culture even now.
Voting takes place between Feb 14 – Mar 28, with details announced through Perth Symphony’s Facebook page. And just as the proceeds from Bowie’s Sound+Vision requests went to charity, fans will be able to donate at the time of ticket purchase and voting, with part proceeds going to the Royal Flying Doctors Service bushfire appeal.
After all, Bowie always aimed for widescreen and celestial, and this production delivers just that. Sound, and Vision.
Just think of the unforgettable songs fans will choose between, including Heroes, Changes, Ziggy Stardust, Space Oddity, Rebel Rebel, Young Americans, The Jean Genie, Suffragette City, Life on Mars? and Ashes to Ashes, all the way to Queen collaboration Under Pressure. What’s your stardust?
