A UK exhibition tour of many ‘never before seen’ photographs of David Bowie is set to premier in Norfolk this summer.
Norfolk company Off Beat Lounge, in conjunction with David Bowie’s official photographer, Denis O’Regan are beginning a UK tour of Mini dealerships starting in Norwich on Thursday 28th July 2016, exhibiting forty photographs, many of which have never been seen by the public before, documenting Denis’ time touring the world with David Bowie.
As well as being official photographer to Bowie during the 1983 ‘Serious Moonlight’ Tour, the 1987 Glass Spider Tour and the 1990 Sound and Vision Tour, Denis O’ Regan was also the photographer at events such as The Concert for Diana and Live Aid. Through the 1980s and 1990s, Denis toured the world as official photographer to the Rolling Stones, Queen, Duran Duran, Pink Floyd, Spandau Ballet, Thin Lizzy, Neil Diamond and the Bee Gees.
Off Beat Lounge, who have a gallery open to the public in Carleton Forehoe, Norfolk, specialise in the publication and exhibition of limited edition, fine art rock photography. This is their second UK tour, following on from the overwhelming success of last years Bruce Springsteen exhibition tour, which saw fans travelling from across Europe to attend.
The collaboration between Denis O’Regan and Off Beat Lounge will mean that fans can view this unique and personal photographic collection of David Bowie at one night only pop up exhibition events, giving them the chance to see rare, intimate moments from back stage, relaxing between gigs and on stage.
Denis will also be in attendance, giving some ticket holders a chance to attend a meet and greet ‘question and answer’ session, as Denis chats about his life on the road with one of the worlds biggest rock icons.
