Fuck You, Cancer - A David Bowie Tribute

  • The Gasometer Hotel 484 Smith Street Collingwood Australia (map)

A charity event and live art tribute to the blackstarman, David Bowie, whose surprise death from cancer was a painful reminder of the ongoing battle against this disease.

Join us for a mix tape of some of our best-loved poets, comedians, singers, songwriters and cabaret performers including ultra special guests Missy Higgins, Angie Hart, Josh Earl, Alicia Sometimes, Hannah Gadsby, Andy Griffiths and more. All exploring a favourite aspect of the career and life of an artist beyond compare. There will be live art, installations, facepainting, a performance of Bowie’s final single ‘Lazarus’ featuring the David Bowie Dancers, cover versions, stories, re-interpretations and a Space Oddity singalong featuring The Ladychoir.

All proceeds will be donated to the Peter MacCallum Cancer Foundation to help further life-saving cancer research.

Let’s mourn, let’s celebrate, let’s remember, let’s dance.
