The career of David Bowie has been one of the most colorful and intriguing in modern rock history. From his first appearance as balladeer Davy Jones in the 60s to his spectacular gender-bending debut in the 70s as Ziggy Stardust, Bowie’s presence of stage spanned nearly fifty years and is often cited as a major influence on contemporary artists and designers.
Following a sold out run in New York, David Bowie's musical Lazarus is now set to grace a London stage. Writing a West End show was one of Bowie's childhood ambitions and in celebration of this feat, A Curious Invitation and Antique Beat will be opening their series of theatre salons with a talk on this singular musician at the venue Bowie held his alter ego Ziggy's last supper.
