LIFE ON MARS
Inspired by the sound and vision of David Bowie
Established in 2004, Toronto, Canada based Life on Mars (LoM) presents the genius of Bowie across the decades. Maintaining the integrity of the music, note for note, LoM presents a two hour retrospect, a musical reinvention of classic Bowie hits; uniquely arranged into a soaring, emotional, musical, concert experience of astonishing nuance and power.
Life on Mars is not an imitation of Bowie but an emulation of his music and a celebration of his spirit. Singer Kevin Connelly fuses the essence of Bowie’s vision and charisma with his own electrifying talent and captures with mesmerizing accuracy, the mystery, the moves and the magic of Bowie himself; backed by the incomparable Heroes band this is a performance unsurpassed by any other of it's kind.
"Kevin Connelly is stunning: he can play the rock star with remarkable grace because he is one. His voice is potent and flexible, his moves are magical. He has this way of calmly holding an attitude as though something were about to happen, it’s very dramatic. And something does happen. He and his band deliver, one after another, solid interpretations of brilliant Bowie songs- all the greats- some in fresh arrangements, others fairly faithful, all led by Kevin’s powerful performance that is at turns tribute, but offers unique interpretation. Very theatrical: Kevin’s a true entertainer.”
