“Ashes to Ashes was able to not only deliver a 10/10 performance, but they really did give the audience a unique Bowie experience” – The Iconic Blonde
The spirit of the legendary, the iconic, the revolutionary, David Bowie lives on with ‘Ashes To Ashes: The David Bowie Experience’ who have earnt a reputation as Australia’s premier Bowie tribute. They perform faithful versions of the songs that span Bowie’s stellar 5 decade, 27 studio album career in a stunning two-hour concert production.
With an invitation to headline at Let’s Dance Carinda in New South Wales, an annual festival held in the Outback town where Bowie’s iconic Let’s Dance video was filmed in the mid-80’s, Ashes to Ashes prides itself on capturing the quintessential essence of his live performance and delivering it with pure rock gusto.
The Adelaide band, all huge fans of Bowie in their own right, is fronted by the vividly artistic Paul Matthews who has been described to have “a beautiful voice that is so similar to Bowie himself, it’s eerie.” Backed by an equally as impressive band to boot that features Marco Giardini (keys etc.), Guy Hunt (guitar), Dan Irizzary (bass), Mark Hudson (saxophone, percussion and more) and Matt Carter (drums), Ashes To Ashes brings to the stage a seasoned professionalism that has been described as “fabulous”, “brilliant” and “unbelievable”.
“We create a show that replicates the studio produced songs and capture the dynamism of live shows reminiscent of the ‘Reality Tour’ period of Bowie’s career“, says Guy Hunt. “We deliver a show that incorporates all the radio friendly hits that one would expect, but we also throw in a few deep-cuts… songs that stray from the mainstream a bit.”
Performing all of Bowie’s illustrious hits such as: Heroes, Let’s Dance, Rebel Rebel, Space Oddity, Ziggy Stardust, Life On Mars, Young Americans, Modern Love and more.
