David Bowie to be honoured for his 70th birthday in 'Celebrating David Bowie'

The cruel departure of one of the UK's most treasured artists, David Bowie earlier this year was something of nightmares.

Now, although his passing is still raw, fans and friends are coming together to create a special 70th birthday bash celebrating the wondrous life of Bowie.

The set of worldwide benefit shows began after two informal shows ran with more than 70 musicians in Los Angeles and San Francisco in Spring this year including Ewan McGregor, Gary Oldman, Seal, Jerry Harrison and Bowie's band from the Space Oddity era to the Blackstar album.

Sunday, January 8 artists and friends will be Celebrating David Bowie in his birthplace of South London at O2 Academy Brixton.

All proceeds will go to the Children and the Arts charity.

Many of the artists taking part in the show have all performed, wrote and recorded songs with Bowie for many decades and the night promises not to be a tribute but an ensemble with Bowie people, playing Bowie music and in Bowie style.

It is reported that this is the first and last time this close knit group will get together to perform shoes like this and may be the last chance anyone will come close to experience Bowie live again.

This news comes after fans have found what they believe to be more secret messages within his latest album, Blackstar, including an image of the starman amongst the stars and casting a reflection, when angled at walls and ceilings, of a star, bird in flight or a spaceship.

Known for holding this very universe together, grab your tickets to see the man who was, even without his deeply missed presence. Tickets are £55.00 - £150.00 and are available via ticketweb.co.uk
