SHARLEEN SPITERI AND FRIENDS HONOUR DAVID BOWIE AT THE ABC2
The JD Set returns to Glasgow at the O2 ABC2 where Scotland’s very own Sharleen Spiteri and a host of friends will pay tribute to one of music’s most enduring songwriters on Wednesday 20th April. Taking songs from ‘Hunky Dory’ alongside other classics from David Bowie, Sharleen will be joined by Ian McCulloch, Kate Nash, the hotly tipped Ramona and other special guests. With so many great tunes to choose from there are sure to be debates about what Sharleen’s supergroup should play.
Sharleen said of this unique and very special night:
“There are few artists that have repeatedly changed the musical landscape but David Bowie is one of them. ‘Hunky Dory’ was really where the Bowie story begins, where he started to become the global artist that we know today. Aside from the incredible singles in ‘Changes’ and ‘Life On Mars’ the album boasts ‘Oh You Pretty Things’ and ‘Kooks’ although every track is a classic in its own right. This is the album that led to ‘Ziggy Stardust’ and ‘Aladdin Sane’, that set the tone for glam rock and kick-started a musical revolution that dominated music for most of the 70’s. I am looking forward to working with our special guests in reinterpreting some of the greatest songs ever written for this year’s JD Set in Glasgow.”
