Celebrating the incredible music of the late, great and unique, master of modern pop culture,
from Space Oddity through to smash hit Let's Dance to the wonderful The Next Day, internationally-acclaimed British rock frontman Paul Roberts and his band deliver songs from a dozen of David Bowie's classic albums.
Famed for his high-energy performances, Paul brings these fabulous songs to life and with his band of leading British musicians moves seamlessly from one era to the other. It's the kind of evening described by Bowie himself as "a t-shirt and jeans type of show".
The extensive repertoire highlights Bowie's amazing musical depth and knowledge including hits such as: The Jean Genie, China Girl, Rebel Rebel, Sound and Vision, Fame, Suffragette City, Scary Monsters as well as classics Life On Mars, Space Oddity, Lets Dance, Ashes to Ashes and many more.
The show is all about the music & in contrast to a modern day 'tribute'...... no wigs or tired posturing - just a great evening of Bowie's music delivered faithfully & passionately. The reviews and comments endorse that BowiePR is a live experience not to be missed.
Having lived in the music world for much of his life, Paul felt dogged by his entirely unintended but uncanny resemblance to Bowie. "I'd recorded Bowie stuff when I was a kid and had a little band together way back for fun really......but when I started out in the music game I'm sure people thought I was trying to be like him.....nothing could have been further from the truth."
In 2016 Paul was approached to perform some high profile shows in Asia. Having done so, he decided it would be fitting to pay respectful homage to Bowie and keep his music playing.
As far back as 1999, after recording his own version of Lady Grinning Soul, Bowienet actually reviewed the track, calling it "A truly beautiful cover..." - the ultimate flattery. They went on to endorse Paul's work and encouraged fans to follow the shows of his band Soulsec.
Paul was the frontman of The Stranglers between 1990 and 2006, appearing on and co-writing their studio albums Stranglers in the Night, About Time, Written in Red, Coup de Grace and Norfolk Coast.
Since then he has worked on several solo music projects and, as a talented actor, appeared on TV's 'Cranford' and toured in shows including Richard O'Brien's 'Mephistopheles Smith', 'SimplySwing','Ovid & The Art of Love' and the self written, sell-out London show 'The Great American Songbook'. All receiving excellent reviews.
He continues writing to this day.
