Win Tickets to see Seu Jorge presents THE LIFE AQUATIC: A TRIBUTE TO DAVID BOWIE Live at The Van Buren on 9/5, courtesy of Stateside Presents!

The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou is one of Wes Anderson’s most beloved and celebrated films with Bill Murray in a career defining performance. But one of the most endearing and memorable elements of the film were the reimagined Portuguese covers of David Bowie songs throughout by celebrated Brazilian singer/actor Seu Jorge. Our friends at Stateside Presents are bringing Seu’s unique interpretation of these Bowie classics back with Jorge’s latest tour of The Life Aquatic on September 5th at The Van Buren. The stage and costumes are designed by creative directors Mariana Jorge and Danny Perez, who worked on the art direction of the original film to create an immersive experience straight out of Anderson’s film.

CONCERTS WILL FEATURE BOWIE SONGS JORGE INTERPRETED IN WES ANDERSON’S
THE LIFE AQUATIC WITH STEVE ZISSOU

JORGE’S “UNCLUTTERED ARRANGEMENT CALLS ATTENTION TO THE INGENIOUS ARCHITECTURE OF BOWIE’S SONGS”
– LOS ANGELES TIMES

THOUGH SEU JORGE IS ONE OF BRAZIL’S MOST CELEBRATED SINGERS AND ACTORS, HE IS PERHAPS BEST KNOWN HERE IN THE U.S. FOR HIS ROLE IN WES ANDERSON’S 2004 FILM THE LIFE AQUATIC WITH STEVE ZISSOU, IN WHICH JORGE REINTERPRETED A NUMBER OF DAVID BOWIE’S BIGGEST HITS. THE SONGS, PERFORMED IN PORTUGUESE AND FEATURING JORGE SOLO ON ACOUSTIC GUITAR, BECAME SOMETHING ENTIRELY UNIQUE. SO MUCH SO THAT BOWIE HIMSELF WAS MOVED TO SAY, “HAD SEU JORGE NOT RECORDED MY SONGS IN PORTUGUESE, I WOULD NEVER HAVE HEARD THIS NEW LEVEL OF BEAUTY WHICH HE HAS IMBUED THEM WITH.” JORGE WILL PERFORM THESE SONGS, AND THOSE HE RECORDED FOR THE 2005 ALBUM THE LIFE AQUATIC – STUDIO SESSIONS FEATURING SEU JORGE, IN HIS CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED LIVE SHOW THE LIFE AQUATIC – A TRIBUTE TO DAVID BOWIE, WHICH WILL TOUR NORTH AMERICAN IN JUNE AND SEPTEMBER.

THE LIFE AQUATIC – A TRIBUTE TO DAVID BOWIE WILL FEATURE A SET AND COSTUMES DESIGNED BY CREATIVE DIRECTORS MARIANA JORGE AND DANNY PEREZ, BOTH MEMBERS OF THE ORIGINAL THE LIFE AQUATIC CREATIVE TEAM. JORGE WILL PERFORM ON A STAGE REMINISCENT OF THE FILM SET, WITH BOAT SAILS FUNCTIONING AS SCREENS DISPLAYING IMAGES THROUGHOUT THE SET. YET EVEN WITH SUCH A SIMPLE SET UP, THE LOS ANGELES TIMES WRITES IN A GLOWING REVIEW, JORGE BRINGS WHAT FEELS LIKE “INFINITE DETAIL AND EMOTION TO THE SONGS

  • Austin Casey

    All be it a brief appearance, I loved Bowie as agent Phillip Jefferies in Fire Walk With Me. Favorite song, as I’m sure will be most people’s, would have to be Space Oddity.

    One of the best shows with Bowie I attended was when he was in Tin Machine. Got to see him in a small venue and was so close I could have jumped on him 🙂 lol :-). So my favorite song is going to be Crack City from the first Tin Machine album 🙂
