Welcome to London's very first David Bowie Musical Walking Tour! Featuring landmarks & classic Bowie songs performed on route around Brixton

About this event

Welcome to London’s Original David Bowie Musical Walking Tour. Offering a 3 hour guided tour of Bowie’s vibrant hometown of Brixton, join us for an all-encompassing journey from birth to death of one of London’s biggest icons. The tour will feature classic David Bowie songs performed on route and stories and anecdotes from his life.

Experience the colourful and diverse cultural heritage of David Bowie’s vibrant hometown of Brixton!

• Witness the iconic London venue where Bowie played a homecoming show in 1991 and hear the story of how the Brixton Academy came to be a hotspot for many of the worlds most influential and ground breaking artists.

• Stand outside the house where a young David Robert Jones was born and learn of the fascinating and often tragic family history that inspired some of his greatest songs.

• Visit David Bowie’s very first primary school and learn of his often rebellious nature from a very early age and a nonconformist outlook that shaped the artist we know and love today.

• See some of Brixton’s wonderful street art including numerous David Bowie paintings scattered throughout Brixton, big and small – can you find them?

• Visit the square and cinema where 1000’s of people paid tribute to a legend shortly after his tragic death on the 11th of January 2016 and relive the moment as your host performs Bowie’s classic 1972 hit, ‘Starman’.

• Learn the history of Jimmy C’s famous David Bowie Mural and the story behind Brian Duffy’s iconic ‘Aladdin sane’ photography that the image is based on.

• Become part of the show by singing along to David Bowie’s classic songs, performed acoustically on route by your host Nick Stephenson!

Songs performed on this tour include Space Oditty, Starman, Rebel Rebel, Let's Dance and many more!
