Seu Jorge's Tribute to Bowie American Tour
“There’s a sailor who sings”
In case you missed the announcement on his FB page last week, Seu Jorge will present THE LIFE AQUATIC TOUR, a tribute to DAVID BOWIE in America in November.
Jorge first came to international prominence when he appeared as the enigmatic David Bowie-singing sailor, Pelé dos Santos, in Wes Anderson’s 2004 movie The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou.
In his role as dos Santos, Jorge performed several of Bowie’s songs, including Rebel Rebel, Life On Mars? and Starman, albeit in Portuguese while accompanying himself with just an acoustic guitar.
His The Life Aquatic Studio Sessions album was released on the Hollywood Records label in 2005 and Bowie himself had this to say in the sleeve notes:
"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.”
For the upcoming tour, the Brazilian singer/songwriter will reprise his Portuguese bossa-flavored Bowie covers during a series of Life Aquatic concerts. Images from the film will play on screens shaped like boat sails during the themed shows.
These are the dates for Seu Jorge's The Life Aquatic: A Tribute to David Bowie concerts:
Nov. 4: Faena Theater, Miami Beach
Nov. 7: Union Transfer, Philadelphia
Nov. 8: The Howard Theatre, Washington, DC
Nov. 9: Boston Symphony Hall, Boston
