This double bill of David Bowie and Jamie Cullum is two of the Late Night Proms at the Royal Albert Hall shown together at the Victoria Hall.
The first Prom pays tribute to David Bowie, the rock and pop legend, who died at the age of 69 in January this year and whose influence was felt in every field of the arts.
A celebration and reinterpretation of the music of David Bowie with the Berlin-based, genre-defying musicians’ collective s t a r g a z e and its Artistic Director André de Ridder.
They are joined by guest singers and collaborators – including Jherek Bischoff, Anna Calvi and Amanda Palmer – to re-imagine the Bowie catalogue with fresh settings of classic works.
After the interval Jamie Cullum presents an evening of late-night jazz, with performances from BBC Introducing artists, the Heritage Orchestra and conductor Jules Buckley.
Straddling the boundaries of jazz, pop and rock, Jamie Cullum returns for another Late Night Prom after his sell-out appearance in 2010. This time, backed by the Roundhouse Choir and Heritage Orchestra, he offers his own take on a collection of pop songs, in the spirit of The Song Society – Cullum’s project to create fast and loose covers of favourite tracks.
He brings the same approach of new discovery both to his use of the wide array of instruments available and to exploring the distinctive space of the Royal Albert Hall.
A Fish & Chip supper will be served during the interval. A vegetarian option is available.
Licensed Bar with Wine, Beer and soft drinks.
Doors Open at 6:45PM
Entrance by Tickets only £10.00 (to include a fish and chip supper)
