From a press release:

Meat and Potato Entertainment and Thirst T’s Bar & Grill have teamed up to bring “BowieLive” to Olyphant on Thursday, April 19 at 7:30 p.m. The David Bowie tribute concert has been added as a compliment to the current year-long tribute series the pair is producing, which was announced last year on NEPA Scene.

BowieLive will take fans on a journey into the mind of the incomparable David Bowie. The evening will begin with a performance of “The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars” in its entirety, followed by a night of everyone’s favorite Bowie hits.

Tickets, which are $10, are on sale now via Eventbrite. Patrons are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance to guarantee entrance.

BowieLive – The Ultimate David Bowie Tribute has been called “the closest thing sonically and visually to witnessing David Bowie” live in all phases of his legendary career. Singer Chris Theoret has spent years learning perfecting his ability to channel David Bowie. Theoret is tall, thin, and pale like Bowie himself, with an unrivaled voice backed by his band, Starman.

It has been said that Theoret was put on this Earth to continue providing audiences the opportunity to witness the legend that is David Bowie. Audiences that close their eyes and listen claim to be transported to a Bowie concert.

The size and scope Bowie’s catalog spans decades and many different styles of music, which is what makes is music exciting for all generations. From Bowie’s early hits like “Space Oddity” to his breakthrough album “Ziggy Stardust” to the “Thin White Duke” era to even his ’80s pop songs, BowieLive delivers the goods.
