Showing at the Churchill Theatre on Friday May 11, the Bowie Experience has become the world’s favourite and most authentic tribute to the thin white duke, and continues to amaze audiences across the globe - it is a must-see for all Bowie fans.

Laurence has been doing the tribute act for the past 20 years.

Speaking about the timeless and iconic nature of Bowie, he said: “He added together all the elements that existed in rock.

“He recognised the power of the image.

“People remember what they have seen for longer than what they have heard so his focus on images was clever.

“At heart he was a writer and he wrote a good life story - he took what already existed and made it how own.”

The ultimate tribute show, the Bowie Experience promises an unforgettable journey of sound and vision through Bowie’s golden years.

Laurence is a vocalist, actor and multi-instrumentalist who has performed all over globe, with performances at the official ‘David Bowie Is’ Exhibition at The V&A London and The Royal Albert Hall.

He added: “The music comes first, and Bowie always brought a fresh and exciting energy to anything he did, exploring many different genres of music.”

Joined by his co-cast members, the world’s number one celebration of David Bowie recreates the magic of Bowie with all the hits from A to Ziggy, including Space Oddity, Starman, Fashion, Life on Mars, China Girl, Rebel Rebel, Golden Years, Modern Love and Let’s Dance.

Laurence said: “With Bowie, people really listen to the lyrics of his songs and they speak to a part of ourselves that most people don’t tap into.

“I couldn’t possible pick a favourite song - they are all my favourite.”

To complement the show, David Bowie walking tour, In Ziggy’s Footsteps will be holding a talk, David Bowie – the South London Years (1947 – 1973) in the Wells Room at Churchill Theatre, starting at 6pm on Friday 11 May.
