Bootleg Bowie UK (aka Nick) is a fantastic David Bowie tribute to the awesome David Bowie. This highly entertaining one man show has been performed all over the UK and Ireland and even in the recently refurbished Savoy Hotel in London to A-list celebrities and fashion artists.
Featured in an episode of ‘Don’t Tell The Bride’ was Bootleg Bowie UK . This episode has been regularly repeated on the Freesat channels. The show covers all Bowie’s classic hits from the 70s and 80s and includes a live acoustic version of the classic ‘Space Oddity’.
The costume is taken from more recent times and is usually a black waist coat with pocket watch chain. The sound system is versatile and compact yet powerful enough to suit most small to medium sized venues and minimalistic stage lighting is used to enhance the performance. The show format is available as 2 x 35 min, 2 x 45 min or 1 x 60 min set – subject to budget.
