ST. PAUL, Minn. (Aug. 3, 2017) — The Ordway Center for the Performing Arts is thrilled to present We Can Be Heroes: The David Bowie Tribute Show by Collins Live on Friday, Sept. 8. Tickets start at $37 and can be purchased online at www.ordway.org, by phone at 651-224-4222 or in-person at the Ordway ticket office.
Starring dynamic Twin Cities vocal musician Julius Collins, We Can Be Heroes celebrates the life and genius of music icon David Bowie through inspired fashion and performances of some of Bowie’s greatest works, including “Let’s Dance,” “Young Americans,” “Starman,” “We Can Be Heroes” and many more. Featuring Jeremy Ylvisaker of The Suburbs and Ryan Smith of Soul Asylum on guitar, Cory Eischen on keyboards and under the music direction of Prince’s longtime bandmate and drummer, Michael Bland.
Described by Rolling Stone as “the greatest rock star to ever fall to this or any other world,” David Bowie blazed a trail in music, fashion, art and, most of all, self-expression. As a teenager, Bowie dreamed of writing musicals. Five decades later—more than 60 albums, 25 movies and a hit Broadway musical, Lazarus—his impact on music and culture is irrefutable.
We Can Be Heroes: The David Bowie Tribute Show is part of the Ordway’s 2017-18 Concert Series. For tickets and more information, visit www.ordway.org.
