Space Oddity: David Brighton as David Bowie

January 2018


   8:00 pm Saturday, January 6, 2018


The Great Ones has another fantastic Rockin' Orchestra tribute for this season! The Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra and guest vocalist David Brighton have planned an electric evening commemorating the music of David Bowie.

In over fifty years from his very first recordings right through to his last album, Blackstar, David Bowie was at the vanguard of contemporary culture as a musician, artist, icon and a constant influence on generations of writers, artists and designers. He was and remains a unique presence in contemporary culture. (

Singer and performer David Brighton is credited as being the world's best David Bowie impersonator, with one of the most entertaining tribute acts ever to hit the stage."David Brighton has the voice, moves and look to have actually stepped in for David Bowie if he were unavailable and few would ever have known. Experiencing David Brighton's Tribute to David Bowie made for a truly remarkable evening…" says Harry Maslin, the producer of David Bowie's Young Americans and Station to Station albums.

Thus, David Brighton is just the performer to bring the music of the legendary David Bowie to Dayton. The evening with Brighton flows through all of the iterations of Bowie the performer, while Brighton and the orchestra weave through the artist’s many musical styles. From “Fame” to “Rebel Rebel”; “Young Americans” to “Changes”; “China Girl,” “Suffragette City,” and “Golden Years” to “Life on Mars” and “Space Oddity (Major Tom),” you won’t want to miss a beat.   

“You’re face to face with the man who sold the world.” . . . Come face to face with the music and the art of Bowie.
