A supergroup dedicated to keeping the early music of the late, great David Bowie alive has announced a string of dates for 2021.
Holy Holy includes drummer Woody Woodmansy, who played in Bowie’s backing band The Spiders from Mars from 1970 to 1973, Tony Visconti, the iconic star’s stalwart producer and bass player on The Man Who Sold The World, and singer Glenn Gregory, who fronted Heaven 17.
The group will play these dates next year...
April 8 - Tramshed, Cardiff
April 9 - Barbican, London
April 11 - Waterside Theatre, Aylesbury
April 13 - Forum, Bath
April 14 - Town Hall, Birmingham
April 16 - Barbican, York
April 17 - Royal Philharmonic, Liverpool
April 18 - Old Fruitmarket, Glasgow
Holy Holy’s previous tours have taken the band to Japan, the United States of America and Canada.
In 2014 the band brought out a single featuring We Are King, written and sung by Steve Norman of Spandau Ballet, and a cover of David Bowie’s Holy Holy, sung by Heaven 17’s Glenn Gregory.
Holy Holy pride themselves on capturing the authentic sound of Bowie’s iconic early songs from 1969 to ’73.
On the band’s website, Visconti says: “We’re not a tribute band. We are the real deal.”
