England’s National Space Centre announces David Bowie tribute planetarium show

The 360-degree production will feature Bowie tracks from 1969 to 1972

Located on Exploration Drive in Leicester, the award-winning National Space Centre has announced details of a new David Bowie tribute planetarium show.

An immersive, 360-degree production, 'Bowie; Oddity to Mars' will feature Bowie tracks performed by a five-piece Bowie group called DAVID LIVE. Bowie material from 1969-1972 - a significant period of time that covered both his experimental phase ('Space Oddity' to 'Ziggy Stardust') and the Apollo lunar landing window - will be played.

Running across 10th-11th January 2020, tickets for the show range from £15-30.

As well as the show, De Montfort University, Leicester College and Loughborough College will also host a visual media exhibition inspired by the late musician.

Back in October, Daft Punk’s 2013 album, 'Random Access Memories', beat Bowie's final record 'Blackstar' to become Discogs' best-selling album from the last decade.

Last year, Nile Rodgers spoke to us about working with Bowie.
