David Bowie tribute act to give Lincolnshire audience the gift of sound and vision next month

This story is over

David Bowie may have sadly died over one year ago now, but his legacy lives on in the form of a pop-up musician who will perform some of his classics in Lincolnshire next month.

Paul Antony, who lives on the south coast, will be performing at The Trinity Arts Centre in Gainsborough on Saturday, September 9.

The Bowie lookalike has always been a fan of the musical and cultural icon, with audiences becoming even more enthusiastic since the artist’s death in January 2016.

He said: “I’ve always performed Bowie’s songs. The first one I learned to play on guitar was Jean Genie. Pop-Up Bowie evolved over the years.

“A Pop-Up Bowie gig has always been a celebration of his music – for the audience, but also for the band. We’re all huge fans and it is a privilege to play his songs.

Despite being a super-fan, Paul never ended up meeting his idol.

He added: “I always thought I would one day, which makes his death all the more sad. Thankfully we have his songs and his recordings, so his music will always live on.

“We’ve played at the Blackfriars Arts Centre in Boston and a few weeks ago we had a great night in Cleethorpes. I live on the south coast, but I always enjoy coming up to the north for gigs. Audiences tend to be especially enthusiastic.”
