Let’s Dance: Celebration of David Bowie featuring Jeans ‘n Classics with The Colorado Symphony
Saturday May 28, 2016 – 7:30 PM – Boettcher Concert Hall
David Bowie was a legendary musician and artist with a career that defined not only an era, but gave birth to an entire new genre of sound. This concert collaboration brings the best of Mr. Bowie’s expansive catalog including favorites like “Space Oddity,” “Changes,” “China Girl,” and more, live on stage to honor over five decades of pushing boundaries of music, fashion, and culture. As Mr. Bowie said, “I don’t know where I’m going from here, but I promise it won’t be boring.”

“We are honored to be able to pay respects and celebrate the life and talent of the legendary David Bowie with this celebration concert,” says Tony Pierce, Colorado Symphony Senior Vice President of Innovative Planning. “We always seek to bring music to as much of our community as possible, and these additional concerts from classical, to classic rock, to modern movie soundtracks means that there’s something here for everyone.”

Tickets to these additional concerts are available starting Jan. 15. More information and tickets to concerts and events can be found at:
