When David Bowie passed away at the start of 2016, he left behind an ever-lasting legacy. More than just a singer and musician, David Bowie was a hugely influential figure whose career lasted over 5 decades. The Bowie Experience follows the artist’s life and times from his late 1960’s Ziggy Stardust persona through to the start of his mid ‘80s career. Taking on the role of the thin white duke is Laurence Knight, a performer who has performed as David Bowie all around the world. Expect to hear early songs such as “Starman” and “Life on Mars” along with “Let’s Dance” and “Heroes”.
Tickets for the Bowie Experience are priced at £27.50 for the stalls and grand circle and upper circle tickets are £27.50, £25 or £22.50. Tickets for under 14’s are £22.50. Doors open at 6.30pm, performance starts at 7.30pm and is due to end around 9.50pm. Getting to Edinburgh by train both Waverly and Haymarket are a 15-minute walk away, or the venue is in the city centre and on public bus routes. Arriving by air, Edinburgh International Airport is 8 miles out of the city centre. If you are coming by coach use the drop off points.
