Antone’s (at it’s new East Riverside location) will host Rock n Roll Suicide – a Tribute to David Bowie on Saturday August 31st, 2013.
Come and bear witness to the ground-breaking rock and roll – as local music collective Purple Bee Crew recreates The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars in all its bombastic, spellbinding glory.
Kicking off the night – The Super Creeps, an all-star band of Bowie aficionados led by Adam Sultan and John ‘El John’ Nelson, will perform a full set of Bowie classics.
The grand finale is Rock and Roll Suicide, a stunning and costumed re-creation of the legendary Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust album. Released in 1972, “Ziggy Stardust” was an immediate hit and vaulted David Bowie to a mega-star. Rolling Stone listed the album at #6 on their greatest albums list from the last 50 years and #35 on the Top 500 albums of all-time.
