Rated 5 out of
A Fitting Tribute to the Starman
I have just seen Live on Mars for the second time in 10 days... I enjoyed it even more this time. Alex Thomas is absolutely made to perform Bowie's songs ... the perfect voice, a brilliant saxophonist and apparently very humble and so sympathetic in his renditions of classic Bowie songs. He is backed by a superb band, who work really hard to replicate the work of this great songwriter and performer.
On top of this great musicianship is the incredible array of moving images which accompany and compliment the songs, including amusing commentary by Bowie himself. I cannot praise this show highly enough and feel that it deserves a wider audience.
A further added bonus is the pacing of the show which ends up with a great opportunity to boogie along as it reaches a climax. I urge you to see this show whilst you can even if you are not a Bowie fan.... if you are, it is unmissable.
