Space Oddity-The Ultimate David Bowie Experience
David Brighton is credited as being the world's best David Bowie impersonator, with one of the most entertaining acts ever to hit the stage.
"David Brighton has the voice, moves and look to actually step in for David Bowie if he were unavailable and few would ever know. Experiencing Space Oddity made for a truly remarkable evening…" says Harry Maslin, the Producer of David Bowie's YOUNG AMERICANS and STATION TO STATION Albums.
Brighton's credits include performing side by side with David Bowie himself in the TV commercials for Vittel Mineral Water and for Reality - Bowie's CD. Brighton has performed as a resident cast member of the world famous Legends In Concert - Las Vegas production show.

This full scale stage production is complete with flamboyant costume changes, elaborate staging, perfectly emulated vocal stylings and one of the best backing bands in the business. All of the many faces David Bowie are present… from stadium-sized pop phenomenon, to space-age rock and roll alien Ziggy Stardust… and so is the excitement and electricity.
Before entering the world of celebrity impersonation, David played lead guitar with a number of popular recording artists. His stint as a sideman began with a phone call from Kevin Dubrow from Quiet Riot. Dubrow tapped David to replace the legendary guitarist Randy Rhoads.
David also enjoyed portraying George Harrison around the world with a number of the world's top Beatle groups, Including: Rain, The Stars of Beatlemania, The Fab Four, 1964, Twist And Shout, Classical Mystery Tour, and When We Were Fab.
