“The award-winning Pop Up Bowie is a stunning 90-minute tribute to David Bowie performing the greatest hits from every era of the rock star’s career from the 70s through to the 1990s and beyond. Front man Paul Antony, a huge fan of Bowie, accurately portrays the charismatic performance of his hero. Paul’s vocal and visual likeness to David is remarkable.

“On Saturday, October 2 Pure Queen, one of the UK’s leading Queen tribute bands around, will deliver a performance of Queen classics that will leave you gasping at Mark’s wonderful interpretation of the great man.”

Tribute tickets cost £8.95 for adult in advance (child £6.95) and doors open at for 8pm performances. Friends of Eastbourne Bandstand cardholders receive 10 per cent off most ticket prices.
