Bowie fans! There’s a treat in store for you in January as the National Space Centre is creating an immersive LIVE show and exhibition celebrating one of the biggest pop culture icons of the twentieth century.

Yes, the National Space Centre is working with DAVID LIVE to host the very first live performance of the music of David Bowie in the Sir Patrick Moore Planetarium. The show, taking place on 10 & 11 January, will fully utilise the unique fulldome format of the UK’s largest planetarium, with a stunning immersive 360 degree show.

Of course nobody is a stranger to David Bowie. He stands tall in the Hall of Fame as one of the biggest pop culture icons of the twentieth century, selling an estimated 140 million albums worldwide.

DAVID LIVE is a British, five-piece band that has performed honest and insightful musical tributes to David Bowie since 2005. Their experienced line-up combines unique musical upbringings and is considered a favourite amongst true Bowie aficionados.

This ultimate LIVE immersive show, Bowie; Oddity to Mars, will celebrate 1969 to 1972: a significant period of time that covered both Bowie’s experimental phase (Space Oddity to Ziggy Stardust) and the Apollo lunar landing window.

As part of the celebration the visitor attraction has also partnered with De Montfort University Leicester (DMU), Loughborough College and Leicester College to create a never before seen exhibition of fashion, textiles, art and photography inspired by Bowie. Free entry to the ‘Inspired’ exhibition is included in each evening ticket.

General Admission (16+) costs £15 and includes entry to the ‘Inspired’ exhibition and a show in the Planetarium. There are also ticket packages allowing guests to add a limited edition t-shirt (£25) or a Bowie inspired cocktail and a t-shirt (£30).

The shows take place on Friday 10 and Saturday 11 January at 7.30pm and 9pm. Tickets are selling fast and are available from the National Space Centre website.
