 About The Bowie Lives

The Bowie Lives is excited to continue their run of theatres in 2024.
With the addition of new songs and costumes, this “Bowie Spectacular” continues to excite audiences whenever they play.

This email from an audience member best sums it up… “Saw the show last night in Midland and was blown away. Was a little apprehensive at first as I have been a Bowie fan since I was a teen and i was concerned the band may not do the songs justice. i was overwhelmingly thrilled at what I heard and saw, from the first note I was hooked. The biggest take away is you can tell the lead singer is truly a devoted fan himself. Loved the way you honoured David Bowie. Hope to see you in Collingwood”

The industry thinks so too…

“5 Stars! Unbelievable! I could have watched them for two more hours!” says Richard Crouse, Host of CTV PopLife. “By far, the best & coolest Bowie Tribute I’ve seen!” says Sam Grosso, Cadillac Productions. “As close as it gets!” says

They’re all talking about the “The Bowie Lives” Canada’s Most Spectacular Tribute to David Bowie! Michael Bell is an award-winning vocalist who channels the sound and styles of David Bowie, and with the help of an all-star band, multi-media, theatre and costumes, he has captured the imagination of fans young and old.

Michael discovered Bowie as a teen and performed songs with a number of his early bands. By the 80’s his first musical production “ChangesAllBowie” toured the “A circuit” before hanging up his “Ziggy” in the early ’90s. Decades passed. After David’s untimely death on January 10, 2016, Michael set out to create a “happening” that would honor the man who helped shape his life and give fans of David Bowie a chance to honor him too.

Together with musical director Michael Beauclerc, they began auditioning players to fill out a band capable of performing some of Rock’s most challenging material. The Bowie Lives bring all the hits to the stage, from Space Oddity to Lazarus, and everything in between.

The Bowie Lives PRE-SHOW includes the Bowie Bazaar; T-shirts, collectibles, LP’s and DVDs and more. Come in costume dressed as your favourite David, or wear your favourite swag and be rewarded! Don’t forget to grab a button!

Michael is also the subject of an upcoming documentary film “Being David Bowie” and web-series “The Bowie Lives.”
