a show with the music of David Bowie
Sven Ratzke & Band

Cabaret superstar and international entertainer extraordinaire Sven Ratzke, returns with his hit show of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2016: Starman – Sven’s brilliant bold homage to David Bowie.

‘Starman’ combines many of the artist’s famous numbers such as “Space Oddity,” “Rebel Rebel,” “Heroes,” and “Rock and Roll Suicide” with classic album tracks, and inspired original songs by Ratzke and Rachelle Garniez. Much more than a mere tribute show, Starman is a one-man rock musical with unique characters and bold reinventions of glam rock classics.

In this international hit show, Sven and his brilliant three-piece band, take audiences on a trip to where facts and fantasy melt into mystery, through storytelling, beautiful ballads, a starburst of cabaret and a crazy bit of rock n’ roll.
