Bits and Pieces – July 2020

Hi to you all
Firstly I hope you are well and keeping safe during these strange times.
Just like everyone else we have lost many shows this year but do hope to be back at some venues soon.
Next year is looking very promising for us as long as things keep getting better and we hopefully see an end to this horrific pandemic very soon.
Apologies for the late post as I have been side tracked with other little projects during the past few months.
The gig page has been updated for the remaining shows that are still going ahead as planned,
At this moment in time there is of course no certainty with these shows but we will keep you informed as soon as possible with any changes.
Hope you enjoyed the Escape Lockdown event inplace of the Bowienetters charity event which we were looking forward to be part of again.
There are new shows being discussed for possible inclusion for later this year. These will be added once confirmed.
Wishing you all the very best and hope you all stay safe

May 2019

Well 2019 so far has been a very exciting for us, from Doha in Qatar, to Scotland and shows back in England.

Sadly we played The Citadel in St Helens for the last time in Jan as it closes it doors in June due to finances. This was always a great venue to start the year off and we are very sad not to be playing there again. It has hosted many great shows and many top entertainers have performed there over the years. The memories of the shows we did there will stay with us.

Well festival season has started and already we have played two Fake Festivals in Stoke and Gloucester to great audiences and we look forward to many more coming up this year. More shows will be coming in and also aiming for more theatre shows between Autumn and next Spring.

More details of things currently planned to be announced soon

All the best, Paul x

December 2018

I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of myself and all of Aladdinsane to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and a great 2019.

We also want to say thanks to everyone at our shows over this past year for the wonderful support given to us. It has been a great year for us and we are very grateful for the lovely comments we have received.

2019 promises some new venues, festivals and more widespread locations, with some areas of the Country that we have not covered before. Many more shows will be added in the next couple of months for 2019.

Still more new material and changes ahead for 2019.

Best wishes to you all and looking forward to seeing you in 2019.

July 2018

Firstly we want to give a big thankyou to everybody who has supported us throughout this year. It has certainly been a roller coaster ride with many very memorable shows so far.

As many of you know we have been very busy with the festivals throughout this summer and fortunate to be playing in many new areas as well as covering areas where we are already well established. We are very honoured and thankful to be part of the Fake festival circuit where we are anywhere from the South of England to the North of Scotland.

Also we very grateful to be the only tribute endorsed by Bowienetters, where we have just played our 6th annual show where proceeds go to the Terrence Higgins trust. Lovely to meet Mark Shaw and Peter Capaldi who were also there this year.

Well there are plenty more shows coming up and still more festivals throughout this incredible hot summer. Looking forward to Wickham Fakefest in the NorthEast this coming Saturday.

There will be more updates in the gallery section coming up and also live video footage to follow,. Thankyou to you all and look forward to seeing some of you at the next shows.

Dec 2017

Well I cannot believe we at this time of year again. Maybe it is all down to having some amazing shows this year and they say time flies when you’re having fun.

This year we have played many fantastic festivals throughout the summer and also some of our fav venues again.

We are really looking forward to 2018 and already promises some great shows for us. We really will be pushing to get some shows in some of the areas we have not had the chance to do over the past few years.

I personally will be aiming for Liverpool as we keep being asked so hopefully we will hit the right venue there for us.

Off course we have the Citadel at St Helens which is a great venue and always packed out for us, but later in the year hoping to leap further into Merseyside and other new areas around the Country.

On behalf of all the band I would like to thank everyone of you for the fantastic support you have all given us and we are wishing you all a very Merry Christmas, good health and best wishes for the New Year

August 2017

So much has happened in the past few months.

Firstly we have been privileged to be welcomed to many of the best top tribute festivals in the UK with more on the way.

Recently we have played a few of the great Fakefests, Tynemouth, Perth (Scotland), Trowbridge, Harrogate, with Keynsham coming up on Aug 5th and the Big Fake fest coming up on Sep 1st. All of these have brought an amazing response for us. Also recently we played Rockprest in Preston and the biggest turnout at Festwich last week, with an estimated 8000 as we stepped on stage just after the rain stopped. WV1 in Wolverhampton and Cambridge Rock festival are also coming up.

We have to say a big thankyou to everyone for the amazing response given to us at all the festivals and venues we have played so far this year. It really has been a wonderful experience at every show we have done so far this year.

Great to get a huge welcome to some new venues we have recently played like the Waterloo in Blackpool, Crazy Daisy in Sheffield and Penny Theatre in Canterbury.

I cannot believe where the time has gone having recently played our 5th annual show for Bowie netters in London being so pleased to be the only Bowie tribute band endorsed by Bowienet for which we feel totally honoured.

A trip to Guernsey for 4 shows coming up at the end of the month which we are looking forward to aswell.

There are many things in the pipe line yet ref more shows including theatres shows, promo material, recordings etc which I will let you all know as things progress.

Really looking forward to this week with the next three big shows coming up.

May 2017

Once again a return to the Cliffs Pavilion Maritime rooms in Southend was a great night for us, really mixing the set up with a few surprise numbers thrown in including a cover of “Round and Round” as a tribute to the late Chuck Berry. David recorded this in 1972 during the Ziggy sessions and ended up as the b-side to “Drive In Saturday”

Last week was all go for me playing a solo show at Tribfest in Bahrain in front of 3.5 thousand people. It had been 33 degrees during the day but had dropped a bit by the time I got on stage, which I was quite pleased about. This is the second time I have had the privilege of playing this festival and met some wonderful artists sharing the event with me. By the time I landed in Birmingham on the Saturday, I was then heading straight up to Tynemouth to headline the Fakefest with Aladdinsane later that night.

This is the second Fakefest we have done so far with more coming up this year around the Country. Again an audience in excess of 3000 who were fantastic from beginning to end. The audience gave us a fantastic response on every number.

Although we have quite a few shows lined up this year already, there are still more shows to be confirmed for later this year as well as booking for 2018.

Next stop is the Bowie Convention in Hull. We have had the privilege of headlining this event 3 times now and looking forward to seeing many familiar faces in the audience.

More news to follow later, Paul x
