Brixton’s very own David Bowie musical tour!
Young and ambitious singer/songwriter Nick Stephenson has set up the immersive experience that is the David Bowie Musical Walking Tour. On the 8th of January 2017 (Bowies birthday), Nick launched his musical tour around Brixton which has gained momentum and popularity for those who wish to pay their respects and celebrate the incredible life of legend David Bowie.
The tour begins at Brixton tube station where Nick greets participants with his guitar, then weaves around the streets of Brixton where Bowie was born and performed his first gig (Brixton Academy). At each stop Nick sings one of Bowies’ songs encouraging his fellow Bowie lovers to sing along!
Alongside this, Nick tells the poignant story of Bowie’s life and work in Brixton which often takes customers to rare and unique sites. Nick has extensively researched Bowies love of Brixton and customers are in for a treat if they decide to take the magically musical 2 hour long tour.
Nick has received rave reviews for his tour online and via TimeOut London:
“A beautiful afternoon with the lovely tour guide and his side kick Coco. No better way to spend DB's birthday than visiting his childhood and singing his songs”(Facebook).
The tour runs regularly on Wednesdays & Fridays at 11am and 2pm, Sundays at 2pm.
Tickets cost £10 per person.
