If you are a big fan of David Bowie, much like ourselves, you know his birthday is quickly approaching. We say quickly because this year is finally coming to a close, and January 8th will be here before we know it. We know you probably want to celebrate his birthday and legacy and need a couple of tips, so we have a couple streaming ideas for you!
A Bowie Celebration: Just For One Day!
To kick off the David Bowie celebration, Rocking Live Studios, and Bowie’s longest-standing band member, Mike Garson, will be hosting A Bowie Celebration: Just For One Day! On January 8th, 6PM PT/ 2AM GMT. You will be able to witness a once in a lifetime stage; the lineup is super packed with amazing talent! You will be able to see going to see Trent Reznor, Billy Corgan, Perry Farrell, Macy Gray, and Ian Astbur. Along with newly added names Duran Duran, Adam Lambert, YUNGBLUD, Andra Day, Michael C. Hall, Ian Hunter, Anna Calvi, Atticus Ross, plus many more!
If that still didn’t convince you well, $2 from every ticket purchased will be going to Save the Children, a charity that has always been important to Bowie. To get your tickets and for more information on the stream, visit here.
Another event that you can enjoy is the three day (January 8th-10th), streaming event of the iconic London production of Lazarus.
If you don’t know, Lazarus is heavily inspired by the book The Man Who Fell To Earth by Walter Tevis. It also focuses on Thomas Newton, as he remains still on Earth – a ‘man’ unable to die, his head soaked in cheap gin and haunted by a past love. We follow Newton during the course of a few days where the arrival of another lost soul – might finally set him free. It includes songs from Bowie’s iconic catalog, as well as new songs written for the stage, including the title song, ‘Lazarus.’
This is certainly something everyone has to see at least once. So, to get your tickets for the streaming event and to check out the viewing times, visit here. You can also check out the soundtrack by the original Lazarus cast, here.
