T. REX vs David Bowie plays at 2020 Adelaide Fringe.
Bigger than Godzilla vs King Kong and fiercer than Alien vs Predator, two giants of '70s glam go head-to-head at Adelaide Fringe in the 'T.REX vs David Bowie' tribute show.
Marc Bolan tribute band T.REXoz battle it out hit-for-hit, with the sensational Bowie tribute act Ziggy Stardust, between them playing all of Bowie and Bolan's biggest hits from the period as well as their co-written unreleased masterpiece ‘Madman’.
Get ready to belt-out classics like 'Children Of The Revolution', 'Jean Genie', 'Hot Love', 'Rebel Rebel', 'Get It On', 'Heroes', 'Metal Guru', 'Starman', 'Telegram Sam', 'Space Oddity', '20th Century Boy', 'Life On Mars', 'Jeepster', 'All The Young Dudes' and more.
Marc Bolan and David Bowie remain two of rock music's most influential artists, their respective catalogues having an impact on various genres, and artists such as Guns & Roses, The Black Keys, Morrisey, Ramones, Motley Crue, Def Leppard, Gary Numan, Kate Bush, Oasis and Prince.
The 'T.REX vs David Bowie' show is inspired by the real-life rivalry and friendship Marc and David shared as they pioneered glam rock, together ruling the airwaves in the early '70s.
Cast as bitter enemies by the press, Marc and David remained close allies while battling each other in the chart up until Marc's death in 1977.
David Bowie would endure for nearly another 40 years, producing insurmountable volumes of timeless music, his final album – his 25th – 'Blackstar' released on his 69th birthday (8 January) in 2016. He died two days later.
Marc and David created legacies that live on the creative spirit of countless young musicians and artists to this day. Courtesy of T.REXoz, Ziggy Stardust and their 'T.REX vs David Bowie' tribute show at Adelaide Fringe we can all be heroes, even if just for one day.
'T.REX vs David Bowie' takes place at Lion Arts Factory 20 February, The Tonsley Hotel 29 February and The Jade 16, 25 February and 4, 11 March.
