Brighton Beach Boys: Aladdin Sane
10th January 2020 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm£17
David Bowie’s Aladdin Sane album was described by Bowie himself as simply “Ziggy goes to America”. The iconic lightning bolt cover image was the first album he wrote and released from a position of stardom.
Most of the tracks were observations he composed on the road, drawing on The Who and The Rolling Stones, forging a harder-edged rock sound. The Jean Genie and Drive-in Saturday were the hits, Time and Lady Grinning Soul were his experiments, Watch that Man and Panic in Detroit show the way forward towards Young Americans and beyond.
This is a classic Bowie album, recreated in all its intricate detail by The Brighton Beach Boys, including Stephen Wrigley and Charlotte Glasson. Celebrating the fourth anniversary of his death, this will be an evening of hits and more.
