David Bowie Concert History

David Bowie (born David Robert Jones, in Brixton, London, on January 8, 1947) was a British singer-songwriter often regarded as one of the greatest musicians of the 20th century. He achieved his breakthrough with the 1969 song "Space Oddity," his first number-one hit single in the UK. Other popular songs by Bowie include "Starman,” "Heroes,” "Under Pressure" (with Queen), "Let's Dance," "Changes," "Modern Love," "The Man Who Sold the World," and "Moonage Daydream.” Bowie also had a successful acting career, most notably starring as Jareth the Goblin Key in Jim Henson and George Lucas’s 1986 cult classic “Labyrinth.” He was married twice, first to Angela Barnett with whom he had a son, filmmaker Duncan Jones, and later to supermodel Iman, with whom he had a daughter, Alexandria “Lexi” Jones. On January 10, 2016, David Bowie passed away from liver cancer, two days after the release of his final album, "Blackstar.”
