Lots of fan-organised fun happenings down-under for David's Oz shows. BowieNetter vicious has sent in the following useful communication:
Hi Blammo, as the great days of Aussie shows draw near (one drought we've managed to conquer, yay!) I thought it time to let you know that we have some fantastic stuff happening for local fans around the country.
In Melbourne we have organised a big nightclub after party for the Friday 27th concert, and a similar event has been booked for Brisbane by BNut David Newman, who is usually known as Diamond Dave. There are meetup events for each show but these two are the main 'public' ones.
Everyone is welcome, particularly to the Club UK night which has not only been organised in the main by several Bowienetters (Maeko.QinZa, SoulLove Cass, myself, Dr Adam) but has a gorgeous flyer designed by the very wonderful Harry Williams. (See above)
The full details are:
Club UK proudly presents "Fantastic Voyage: a six hour niteflight through deepest, darkest, uncharted Bowie"
Club UK is at 169 Exhibition street Melbourne.
10pm til late, Friday 27th February.
$5 entry or show your Reality concert stub for free entry before 11.30pm
All of the info for people wanting to come along to fan meetups in Wellington or Australia can be found at the
Diamond Dave's Brisbane after party is to be held at the Troubador Bar in Fortitude Valley, and details can also be found
Anyhow, enough from me, except to say that we're all getting *very* excited in Oz about the concerts coming up! Cheers & thanks ~Vic
Thanx for that Vic, I've a feeling these are going to be wild nights... you people sure know how to party!
As Vic says, you can find details of all of the events by clicking on the beautifully-designed flyer above to take you to the bowie downunder web site. Apart from being able to view much larger versions of both sides of the flyer, the site keeps on top of all Bowie-related Oz news, including details of two Spooky Ghost shows in Sydney on Feb 19th and Melbourne on Feb 24th.
