Paul Antony Pop Up Bowie

MULTIPLE award winner Paul Antony fronts Pop-Up Bowie, a show celebrating one of the most influential artists in the history of popular music.

Paul displays a staggering likeness to David Bowie, both physically and vocally. The concert features some 30 songs spanning a five decade career that produced incarnations such as Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane,  The Thin White Duke, Pierrot, and the flame-haired, hollow-cheeked Plastic Soulster.

In the two hour show, Paul and the band perform Starman, Jean Genie, Moonage Daydream, Cat People, Ziggy Stardust, Golden Years, Space Oddity, Life on Mars, Modern Love, Young Americans, Under Pressure, Let’s Dance and many more.

Pop-Up Bowie have appeared at venues all over the UK, including The Plaza, Stockport, The Belgrade Theatre, Coventry, The Bandstand, Eastbourne, The Broadway, Barking, Chapel Arts Centre, Bath, The Winter Gardens, Margate, Epsom Playhouse, The Riverside Theatre, Newport, The Brew House, Taunton, Norden Farm Centre for the Arts, Maidenhead, The Northcourt, Abingdon, The Platform, Morecambe, The Mercury Theatre, Colchester, and The Queens Theatre, Hornchurch.

They twice headlined the Swanage Carnival and have also played Rock the Castle, which is held every year inside the imposing grounds of the medieval Pembroke Castle in Wales.

P-UB TALK

On this page is a new video for you and it features one of the most popular numbers in the show – Bowie’s breakthrough record, Starman. 

Both Paul and I first became aware of Bowie from his 1972 appearance on Top of the Pops. It was a truly ground-breaking performance, announcing himself to the world and managing to shock parents and thrill teenagers in equal measure. 

Video of the 1972 TOTP is all over YouTube and I’m always intrigued by the kid in the uncool tank top dancing awkwardly behind the band. What happened to him? He didn’t look much more than 15, so he’d be in his mid-sixties now.

On the Pop-Up Bowie gig front, there is a possible date coming in June. Fingers crossed, as it has been a bit too quiet for my liking over the last couple of months.
