DAVID BOWIE
by ABSOLUTE BOWIE

Absolute Bowie are Europe’s finest David Bowie tribute. The five piece has toured all over Europe for the last 8 years, faithfully performing the music of David Bowie with uncanny accuracy. You'll be taken on a journey experiencing the different personas of the musical genius, from Ziggy Stardust and Aladdin Sane through to The Thin White Duke and the late 80's.

Absolute Bowie has been voted one of the best tribute bands in the UK with their energetic (and theatrical!) stage show. Prepare to be taken from A to Z (Absolute Beginners to Ziggy!) with Let's Dance in between. As Woody Woodmansey (Spiders from Mars) said: "Absolutely wicked. As one who was there, watching AB put me back there again. For anyone who missed it or fans who want to relive it I definitely recommend it. As close to the real thing that you'll get. Enjoy."

There will only ever be one David Bowie and his untimely passing this year was felt by millions of fans worldwide. Absolute Bowie pay a wonderful homage to the music icon, ensuring his musical legacy will continue to be heard live.

CURE WEB PIC

THE CURE by THE CUREHEADS

Formed in 1990, The Cureheads have toured in the UK, the USA, Europe, and South America, playing numerous festivals, including opening for Echo & the Bunnymen and The Pretenders at Guilfest.

The Cureheads recently played to 10,000 people in Chile. The show was recorded for national television and reported on the news, as The Cure has never played in Chile despite having a huge fanbase there.

The band perfectly recreates the experience of seeing a 1980s concert by The Cure, including, not only the sound, but also the wardrobe, attitude, and stage show. If you know your 80’s music you will recall how many huge Cure hits there were, and if not, you’ll be amazed at how many of their seriously catchy songs you remember.   

Friday I’m in Love, The Lovecats, In Between Days, Boys Don’t Cry, Just Like Heaven, Close to me…. the list goes on. This is the perfect opening for Saturday’s music marathon and will have you singing and dancing along before you know it!
