The David Bowie Mind Warp Pavilion 2 commemorative event is due to return to Perth early next year, and will celebrate the life and achievements of the English actor and singer-songwriter, following the second anniversary of his death.
The Mind Warp Pavilion had its inaugural debut earlier this year as a commemoration of the South London musical artist who passed away of liver cancer on January 10th, 2016, aged 69. He died only two days after the release of his final album, Blackstar.
Bowie’s career spanned five decades and produced some of the most influential rock and electronic music of its time. He was famous for hits such as Space Oddity, Star Man, Fame, and later Under Pressure and Ashes to Ashes. Bowie also had an extensive acting career which began with pop culture film The Man Who Fell to Earth (1976).
These hits, along with Bowie’s flamboyant dress and makeup, pioneering music style, and his public exploration of his spirituality and sexuality, shot him into the limelight as a pop-culture icon where he remains to this day.
The Mind Warp Pavilion opened in Perth in 2016, and after its original success, is set to return to the stage in 2018. An array of over 40 Western Australian artists will be performing a comprisal of his 50-year oeuvre for fans to relive, live. DJ Claude Mono will be working between sets to bring remixes and collaboration of Bowie’s music.
“He was one of the defining voices of our time,” says MWP2 MC Adam Trainer.
The now annual event will hit the stage again on Saturday February 3rd, 2018 at the Gate One Theatre at Claremont Showgrounds.
Tickets are available now on Moshtix and part proceeds go to the Cancer Council.
