One of the most iconic and uniquely talented front men in the history of rock and roll, David Bowie was one of the most innovative musicians to have ever lived. Through Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane, and his more commercial phase toward the end of his career, Bowie showed us all how a musician can grow, morph, and change, yet still maintain integrity and intrigue.
BowieLive: The Ultimate David Bowie Tribute, fronted by Pittsburgh musician Chris Theoret, go to great lengths to not only recreate the music of Bowie but also recreate the sound and feel of a Bowie live performance.
There’s no doubt that it’s likely not an easy task to reproduce the many facets of Bowie on one stage in one night, but BowieLive are up to the task on a nightly basis as they run the spectrum from ballads like “Life On Mars” and “Rock n Roll Suicide” to the glam rock of “Rebel Rebel” and the ’80s pop influenced “Let’s Dance” and “Modern Love.” They even manage to sneak in a performance of “Under Pressure,” Bowie’s famous duet with Queen, from time to time as well.
It’s quite possibly the closest thing sonically and visually to witnessing Bowie through all phases of his career that we’ll ever have the chance to see in The Fort, as Theoret channels The Thin White Duke like no other. Take the opportunity to judge for yourself when BowieLive stop by C2G Music Hall on Jan. 4.
