West Kirby music teacher Mat Gray has landed the gig of a lifetime performing on the same bill as legendary David Bowie guitarist, Earl Slick.
Mat, who teaches at Wirral Music Tuition, above Green Onions Café, on Banks Road, in West Kirby, will take to the stage at the O2 Academy, in Liverpool, on April 28.
He will join support act, Lisa Ronson, who is also rock royalty – the daughter of Mick Ronson, the guitarist, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who also performed with David Bowie.
Earl Slick and singer Bernard Fowler are set to tour the UK in April and Japan in May 2016 performing David Bowie’s Station to Station album masterpiece in full and a set of other classic Bowie, Lennon and Rolling Stones songs from their careers with those artists.
Marking the 40th anniversary of the release of David Bowie’s seminal album Station to Station, this tour will showcase the remarkable talents of renowned and influential guitarist Earl Slick, whose guitar playing made such a profound impact on the Station to Station album.
Earl Slick said: “After all of these years the pieces all fell into place for me to perform my all-time favourite David Bowie record, Station to Station, live and in its entirety! I am proud to announce that the Rolling Stones’ Bernard Fowler will be up front and centre on lead vocals. See you all in April.”
