[dropcap size=small]H[/dropcap]aving racked up numerous awards for hits like “Space Oddity”, “Rebel Rebel” and “Sound and Vision” and boasting over 140 million record sales worldwide, British singer-songwriter David Bowie’s unique style has cemented his legacy as a global rock music icon. This month, fans of the celebrated idol will be able to relive his classics from Nov 10 to 12 with a tribute concert by former lead singer of English rock band The Stranglers, Paul Roberts.
Let’s Dance – Paul Roberts sings David Bowie will be held at Ce La Vi, Marina Bay Sands over three nights. Roberts, who fronted The Stranglers from 1990 to 2006, co-wrote their studio albums during that time and has since worked on several solo music projects, including singing Frank Sinatra alongside Laura Nixon’s Marilyn Monroe for British production house Alive & Swinging’s Marilyn Monroe tribute performances in 2010.
Produced by the British Theatre Playhouse (BTP) and Worldwide Entertainment, in conjunction with the British High Commissioner, the British Chamber of Commerce and the European Chamber of Commerce, the performance is paired with BTP’s Art for Charity gala, with proceeds going to charities The Mission to Seafarers and Riding for the Disabled.
