The Foundry Announces Charity David Bowie Tribute Night 'Ziggy Played Guitar'

Tickets are selling quickly, as if that should surprise you

Some of Brisbane's finest musicians will join forces to pay homage to David Bowie — for a good cause — this month, with local haunt The Foundry announcing the line-up for its impending Ziggy Played Guitar tribute concert.

The John Steel Singers, Rolls Bayce frontman Dean McGrath and Morning Harvey's magnetic Spencer White are just the tip of the iceberg in terms of the esteemed ensemble of acts the Brisbane venue has pulled together with help from local industry mainstay Mucho-Bravado, with fan-favourite acts such as WAAXBorn Joy DeadMKO SUN and Inigo adding to the allure of the memorial event. Also on hand will be Joe White and Nathan Kendall (of The Jensens), manning the DJ decks, with local musos Emma Dean and Edward Guglielmino & Shem Allen further rounding out the eclectic, excellent line-up.

The whole shindig is in honour of raising funds for the Cancer Council Queensland, and tickets are basically flying out the door, as though that should be unexpected for such a well-intentioned, brilliantly rostered gig. Indeed, additional acts are still to be announced, in case you're not already sold.

The Foundry's Ziggy Played Guitar charity David Bowie tribute concert goes down from 5pm on Sunday 21 February, and tickets are a paltry $12+bf via Oztix.
