Fans of David Bowie are celebrating his legendary career tonight with a show featuring rare performance footage and screenings of his most popular films.

Hosted at VideOdyssey, the arts venue and studio ‘dubbed the UK’s last video shop’ by BBC Radio 4 at Toxteth TV, the event is set to be an exploration through Bowie’s long and far-reaching career on what would have been the late star’s 72nd birthday weekend.

Doors open at 7pm, and the night will begin with a screening of Labyrinth in the studio/cinema, as well as hard-to-find footage of some of his best-loved performances.

Andy Johnson, owner of VideOdyssey, said: “It’s been selected though one of our members, who’s a massive Bowie fan– he’s given us access to stuff from his personal collection.

“January brings us both David’s birthday and the date on which he left us. We couldn’t hope to possibly encapsulate all the glory that David left behind in one day– but we will try.”

VideOdyssey’s vintage arcade games will be on free play through the night. Guests are encouraged to get into the groove by donning their best Starman garb and taking part in a quiz on all things Bowie between screenings.

There’ll be themed drinks and, most importantly, a chance to immerse yourself in all things Bowie surrounded by people who love him (almost) as much as you do.
