DAVID BOWIE: NOTHING HAS CHANGED
IT is a concert event not to be missed - Queensland Symphony Orchestra along with some of the country's leading music makers will celebrate the rich musical legacy of legendary British singer-songwriter David Bowie in a special concert event on Saturday, October 1, at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre
David Bowie: Nothing Has Changed will see artists iOTA, Steve Kilbey, Deborah Conway, Adalita and Tex Perkins join the QSO at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre to perform hits from the Bowie canon personally selected by the performers.
David Bowie: Nothing Has Changed will feature some 30 songs including Bowie's most popular hits - Changes, China Girl, Life on Mars, Under Pressure, Let's Dance, Starman and Five Years. There will also be performances of more obscure songs from Bowie's oeuvre, says the show's creative director Amanda Pelman.
"The most important thing to me was how Bowie's canon would be portrayed with real integrity and nuance by the orchestra and artists with a sympathetic voice to the work,” says Pelman, who worked as a producer on the musical adaptation of Academy Award-winning film Priscilla Queen of the Desert. "It would be foolish to suggest we can represent the whole of Bowie's canon; the 30 songs are both the highest selling songs and some of the most quirky performances.” Bookings at qso.com.au
