RTÉ Concert Orchestra Perform the Songs of David Bowie

Friday, 9 February 2024, 8.00pm

On the evenings of 9th and 10th February 2024, the RTÉ Concert Orchestra will perform at Bord Gáis Energy Theatre in a special event produced by Singular Artists. The orchestra will be joined by three musicians who were part of David Bowie's band—Gerry Leonard, Mark Plati, and Sterling Campbell—to perform some of Bowie's most iconic songs.

The concert, adapted from the 2021 RTÉ One television recording titled 'Bowie: Starman', marks the first time this production will be presented to a live audience. The repertoire will feature specially commissioned arrangements of David Bowie classics such as "Life on Mars," "Heroes," "Starman," "Changes," and "Space Oddity."

Gerry Leonard, a Dublin native who has also performed with artists like Rufus Wainwright, Laurie Anderson, and Suzanne Vega, serves as the Musical Director for the performance. Mark Plati has a history of playing with rock legends including Lou Reed, The Cure, Fleetwood Mac, and Robbie Williams. Sterling Campbell, the drummer for the event, has worked with bands like the B52s, Duran Duran, Spandau Ballet, and Cyndi Lauper.
