STARDUST: THE MUSIC OF DAVID BOWIE Strung out in heaven


It’s time to put on your red shoes and dance. Due to overwhelming popular demand, and in keeping with COVID-19 regulations on large social gatherings, Perth Symphony Orchestra‘s previously sold out STARDUST: The Music of David Bowie has moved from the Astor Theatre to HBF Stadium, Mount Claremont on Thursday, September 17.

Innovative, as wildly acclaimed as he was popular, and quite simply one of the most influential artists of the 20th century, Bowie continues to impact popular culture to this day.

Thanks to songs already voted on by fans earlier this year, Perth Symphony Orchestra will perform all the hits from Heroes, Changes, Ziggy Stardust, Space Oddity, Rebel Rebel, The Jean Genie, Suffragette City, Life on Mars? and Ashes to Ashes, all the way to Queen collaboration Under Pressure. 

In recent years Perth Symphony Orchestra have become renowned for their radical reinterpretations of timeless artists such as Nirvana and The Doors. This new production allows audiences to hear just how amazing Bowie’s songs sound with a majestic orchestra behind them. In fact, Perth Symphony Orchestra have expanded their sound to incorporate more of the wildly diverse instruments the acclaimed songwriter used, such as harmonica, thumb piano, drums and various percussion instruments, to alto and baritone saxophones, stylophone, viola, cello, koto and more.


Joining Perth Symphony Orchestra in the role of Bowie are the multi-dimensional talents of singers Addison Axe and Steve Hensby, who will represent the moves, moods and many sides of Bowie’s charisma. Axe is originally a Londoner and veteran of acclaimed WA bands Axe Girl and The Tommyhawks, while Hensby is a popular live entertainer, whether alongside his 8-piece Steve Hensby Band, or performing on Fringe World stages showcasing his theatrical side.

Audiences can also experience the incredible talents of conductor Elise Chong, an alumnus of PSO’s Women on the Podium program, in her Perth Symphony Orchestra debut.

Perth Symphony Orchestra’s STARDUST: The Music of David Bowie goes down at HBF Stadium, Mount Claremont on Thursday, September 17. Limited new seats are on sale now from ticketmaster.com.au.
