David Brighton is credited as being the world's best David Bowie impersonator, with one of the most entertaining tribute acts ever to hit the stage.

Experiencing David Brighton's Tribute to David Bowie 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.

David has performed for Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver… Brooke Shields, Dustin Hoffman, Martina McBride, Sylvester Stallone, Jay Leno, David Foster, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas, Barbara Streisand, Quincy Jones, Lisa Marie Presley and Nicholas Cage... to name a few...
This unforgettable stage production is complete with flamboyant costume changes, elaborate staging, perfectly emulated vocal stylings and one of the best all-star 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…
"David Brighton's charisma keeps the audience mesmerized and his vocals are flawless… His likeness to Bowie is eerie… The crowd actually gasped in amazement as he took the stage... you wondered if it wasn't really Bowie himself… Everyone was leaving their seats and kicking up their platform heels to the sounds of chart-topping hits like Fame, China Girl, Let's Dance and Modern Love… What (Brighton and band) give is nothing short of the opportunity to go back in time…" - The LA Review
