A Friday Night With(Out) David Bowie (SOLD OUT) @ BOP STOP

January 10 from 8:00pm - 11:00pm

A Friday Night With(Out) David Bowie (SOLD OUT) @ BOP STOP


A Friday Night With(out) David Bowie. This live interactive presentation by arts impresario and Bowieologist Thomas Mulready traces David Bowie's life from his birth in the suburbs of London, to his years exploring mime and theatre, through his numerous and unsuccessful early rock bands, to his breakthrough with Ziggy Stardust and his first American hit Young Americans.

The show continues through Bowie's furiously evolving music and personae such as The Thin White Duke, his experimental Berlin era, the worldwide superstardom of Let’s Dance, all the way through his underrated but infinitely interesting late career, his brilliant final albums The Next Day and Blackstar , and his untimely death in 2016.

Along the way, we investigate David Bowie's breakthroughs in theatre, design, marketing, technology, finance and sexuality. Recently released historical materials fill in gaps and bring to light new insights into one of the most important artists and cultural figures of the past century.

January is David Bowie Month with seven events across five venues during January, 2020. While A Friday Night With(out) David Bowie is presented on three successive Fridays in January at three different venues, each presentation will contain slightly different material. Because of the intimate nature of these venues, it is recommended to secure your seat online in advance. All ages will be admitted. All shows carry a parental advisory due to the frank and honest nature of the material. A Bowie Bargain Badge is available for $100 offering one person admission to all seven shows. For more details, please visit

A Friday Night With(out) David Bowie opens with a meticulously researched and highly entertaining presentation by Bowie aficionado Thomas Mulready on the life of David Bowie and the stories behind his music, featuring rare video, music, needle drops, trivia, contests, giveaways and audience interaction. The show is capped with a live music set by Cleveland’s glam punk superstars Vanity Crash, featuring a number of Bowie hits and obscure album tracks, side by side with the band’s own stunning original material drawn from their five releases.
