He's In The Best-Selling Show: Live on Mars: A Tribute to David Bowie
Like Ziggy who really sang, Thomas presents a venerable selection from Bowie's catalogue
Wednesday, May 29
If you know when to go out and you also know when to stay in, then you should be heading over to see "Live on Mars: A Tribute to David Bowie" at the Warner Theatre on May 29. Here, you will bear witness to lifelong Bowie fan Alex Thomas and his ultra-talented band interpreting and presenting some of the Starman's greatest work on — or off — this earth.
Like Ziggy who really sang (complete with screwed-up eyes and screwed-down hairdo), Thomas presents a venerable selection from Bowie's catalogue, live and onstage including hits like "All The Young Dudes," "Let's Dance," "The Man Who Sold The World," "Changes," "Rebel Rebel," and "Young Americans."
Whether Thomas does a passable Bowie — can anyone truly come close to The Man Who Fell to Earth? — will have to be decided by concertgoers, but you can see an interpretation of your hero right here in Erie.
VIP Packages to the event are available. Starting at 5 p.m. on the show day, each guest will be given a special Live On Mars VIP Meet and Greet Soundcheck Experience tour pass and 2019 tour poster. They will then be invited by the show road manager into the venue auditorium to listen to the soundcheck, meet the show musicians, and enjoy a special bonus performance of two Bowie songs that will not appear in the show. Bring your poster and a pen if you fancy a signature. — Miriam Lamey
