A David Bowie ballet tribute is in the works

Set to debut at the Music Hall in Detroit

A ballet interpreting the works of the late David Bowie is currently in the works and is set to debut at the Music Hall in Detroit.

The Music Hall commissioned the ballet as part of a tribute to the late artist, and the night will also feature interpretations of the music of Metallica.

According to Billboard, it will reportedly be a “rock opera-style production” and Complexions Contemporary Ballet will perform the ballet on June 18.


A duo of David Bowie tribute concerts were held on March 31 at Carnegie Hall and Radio City Music Hall in New York City. Michael Stipe of R.E.M, Pixies, Blondie, Cat Power, Mumford and Sons, Anna Calvi and more performed.

Back in February, Lorde‘s performance of David Bowie’s ‘Life On Mars’ at the Brit Awards was hailed by Twitter users and Bowie’s son Duncan Jones. The New Zealand singer was supported by the late icon’s backing band at the ceremony at London’s O2 Arena. Bowie was honoured with a posthumous Brit Award.

Bowie’s final album ‘Blackstar’ was also revealed as the highest-selling vinyl record of the past year back in April.

The Official Charts Company launched the UK’s first-ever vinyl chart in April 2015, marking its one year anniversary by announcing a list of the most popular vinyl albums of the past twelve months. Topping the list is Bowie’s ‘Blackstar’, released on his 69th birthday (January 8) and two days before his death.
