Finally heading home after a fantastic week of gigs and events celebrating the first anniversary of David Bowie.
It started with a huge concert in Brixton London on what would have been David’s 70th birthday. All my former Bowie band mates were there alongside star studded array of guest singers. A packed house of 5,000 sang along what was a very emotional and exhilarating evening.
Then next day we flew to Dublin for a packed out SpookyGhost show in Wheelans. We had special guests Cello Ireland for arrangements of Arvo Part and David Bowie. Professor Eoin Devereux did a Q&A with me on stage and Aoife Fitzpatrick opened the show. What a wonderful night we had.
The following day was even busier with a Newstalk radio interview on the Pat Kenny show. Next up a songwriter workshop at IMRO, Irelands publishing organization, an interview and appearance on the Six o’Clock show on TV 3, and a guest slot on the closing night Bowie Raw show for the Dublin Bowie festival.
And last but not least we finished on Thursday with an interview and performance on the Ray D’Arcy radio show at RTÉ radio 1, the national station. SpookyGhost got to perform two Bowie songs Loving the Alien and Andy Warhol featuring Cello Ireland
Off back to NY now to see what’s next
