Bowie's secret life at Wexford Arts Centre


The late David Bowie.
The late David Bowie.

'A Secret Life' celebrating the work of David Bowie is due to take place at 8 p.m. at Wexford Arts Centre this Friday (February 26).

'A Secret Life' is non-stop live music event which weaves a tale of tyranny and emancipation through Bowie's vision and commitment to telling stories which count.

Not only is 'A Secret Life' driving and compelling music, it is a whole multi-media event with visual artists, film, theatre and narrative happening in and around the stage - if you were ever curious about Andy Warhol's 'Factory' or 'Happenings' - check this out.

The tour, which was planned before Bowie's untimely death, continues after the Arts Centre at The Grand Social, in Dublin, and then The Mill Theatre, in Dundrum, followed by other venues in Ireland before, hopefully, heading off to Berlin and New York.

'A Secret Life' features some of our top musicians and is enjoying a growing reputation as the 'must-see' Bowie Band.

Tickets are €12.50 and available at the Arts Centre.
