“Although I wasn't there, he said I was his friend”
We are very pleased to be able to exclusively announce two further Holy Holy performances of David Bowie’s The Man Who Sold The World album in September.
Tony Visconti, Woody Woodmansey, Glenn Gregory and Steve Norman will now perform the classic Bowie album with Holy Holy and very special guests at two additional dates, on what is shaping up to be a bit of a mini-tour.
The extra shows are at ABC Glasgow, on Saturday 20th September and Shepherd’s Bush Empire, on Monday 22nd September and priority pre-sales start at 9:00am on Wednesday morning (June 4th).

Tony Visconti is hoping for a more comfortable time for what will be his second visit to the Scottish city:
“As for Glasgow, I've only been there once before - in one room with David, Mick, Woody and Roger the Roadie, and we spent the cold winter's night sleeping fully dressed with our coats and boots on. The three bar electric heater did f*** all! It will be nice to see the city under more pleasant circumstances”.
And Steve Norman had this to say:
"Being a childhood fan of Bowie and The Spiders From Mars, I know that Woody Woodmansey and Tony Visconti reuniting for the first time in over 40 years is something very special, but I never imagined it would become such a hot ticket. It seems only fitting that they perform together at such an iconic venue as the Shepherds Bush Empire."
Tony Visconti on bass, and Woody Woodmansey on drums, will be joined by Woody’s stellar supergroup Holy Holy, for these shows including:
Glenn Gregory (Heaven 17), vocals
Steve Norman (Spandau Ballet), sax, guitar, percussion and vocals
Erdal Kizilcay (David Bowie, Iggy Pop, Freddie Mercury), keyboards and vocals
James Stevenson (The Cult, Generation X, Scott Walker, Gene Loves Jezebel), guitar
Paul Cuddeford (Ian Hunter, Bob Geldof), guitar
Rod Melvin (Ian Dury, Brian Eno), piano
