One of legendary rock star David Bowie’s core backing ensemble is coming to the Isle of Wight next month.

Woody Woodmansey, the powerhouse drummer behind the Spiders from Mars, will be at the Quay Arts Centre on Friday (7).

He was due to have a talk in July last year, however it got cancelled due to a family emergency.

From 1970 to 1973, Woody pounded out a glam beat for Bowie with hits including Changes, Life on Mars, Starman and Jean Genie.

Those attending the event will be able to hear Woody recall those heady Ziggy Stardust days at what is promised to be ‘a very special ‘Evening With…’ ‘event!

‘An Evening with Woody Woodmansey’ will get underway from at 8pm.

You can book tickets here.
