Live: Seu Jorge Announces UK David Bowie Tribute Shows

The wonderfully-talented Seu Jorge, who rose to fame in Wes Anderson’s 2004 film The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou, has announced a number of UK shows, continuing his world tour in tribute to the late David Bowie

Throughout Anderson’s film, which starred the likes of Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, Cate Blanchett, Willem Dafoe and Jeff Goldblum, Brazilian artist Seu Jorge performed numerous David Bowie tracks in Portuguese, accompanied only by his acoustic guitar and famous blue shirt and red beenie hat combination

About Jorge’s performance, David Bowie himself stated, “Had Seu Jorge not recorded my songs in Portuguese, I would never have heard this new level of beauty which he has imbued them with”

The upcoming shows will see Seu Jorge perform a special tribute commemorating the late Starman, while recreating the set to the film A Life Aquatic on stage, alongside screens crafted as boat sails that will be displaying images from the film
