Awesome David Bowie tribute act comes to Southend


Well, Hockley actually! As part of their Glam rock month, on Friday the 10th of November Touchline Live Music is playing host to ‘Aladdinsane’ – The Sound and Vision of Bowie, with Paul Henderson staring as the iconic David Bowie.

In the words of theatre goers across the UK, “Paul’s vocals and theatrical movements reflect Bowie’s with disturbing accuracy”.

Whether portraying the 70’s era Ziggy Stardust, the Thin White Duke or Bowie’s 80’s/90’s songs in this totally live show, many who have seen this performance simply called it “Spot on”. The band’s professional musical recreation of every song is highly praised every time they appear.

Paul Henderson first caught national attention on ‘ITV’s Stars In Their Eyes’ during the 90’s.This notoriety saw him widely acknowledged as Europe’s most credible Bowie look and sound-a-like and began the evolution of Aladdinsane to the best Bowie Tribute going.

The performance using Sound & Vision showcases a vast repertoire of material. Aladdinsane entertain the audience with a string of hit singles and often include classic Bowie album tracks from the golden years of a living legend.
