The Bowie Experience was first established in 1997, initially called 'Spaceboy' (taking inspiration from the album 'outside')
It was formed by a group of musicians attending music college. Spaceboy played Beckenham's annual Bowiefest (sharing a stage with Steve Harley), appeared in Dazed and Confused magazine and recorded 'the Laughing Gnome' for an animation company in Cologne, Germany, before ending it's run at 'the Bournemouth Festival of Light' outdoor concert in late 1998.
In 2003, Laurence performed live as David Bowie at The Royal Albert Hall, and in the same year The Bowie Experience supported Roy Wood (of Wizard fame) in Scotland.
From 2004/5 to date The Bowie Experience have been featured regularly on davidbowie.com and Blam (of Bowienet) asked for two copies of the unplugged cd from the Bowie Experience, one for him, and one for Mr Bowie.
Laurence as Ziggy Stardust was employed by British Telecom to promote their 'Mars Communicator' at Leicester Space Centre, he was asked by Sky Tv to appear at the launch of the Biography Channel, Ziggy also appeared in Armando Ianucci's comedy series 'Time Trumpet', and 'Don't Tell The Bride' for the BBC, recreated the Ziggy Stardust album cover photograph by appearing in Heddon street to feature in an 'app' for the Museum of London and performed at the very top of the 'gherkin' building in central London.
Taking the lead from Ziggy Stardust, Spaceboy was reinvented as The Bowie Experience and went on to play all over the UK via the Chicago Rock chain, Jumpin Jaks, theatres, corporate events and festivals including the 'Compaq Science Festival' and supporting Boney M.
On the 6th June 2012, to celebrate the 40th anniversary (to the day) of the Ziggy Stardust album release, BowieXP performed the Ziggy Stardust album in full, live in Heddon Street, London (the original location for the album cover photograph) under the newly unveiled plaque which marks the spot.
The Bowie Experience continues to tour, appearing regularly at festivals, theatres and venues throughout the UK and Europe.
Please note that Laurence will be performing solo.
Doors open from 6.30pm. Ticket price includes free roast potatoes for each table. Reservations will be held until 8.30pm and then released to walk ins. Please refer to terms and conditions for full details.
