Levitt Pavilion Los Angeles: David Bowie Tribute Celebrating 50 years of “Aladdin Sane”

Levitt Pavilion Los Angeles celebrates its ‘sweet sixteen’

That’s 16 years of outstanding diverse live music in MacArthur Park for free!

August 26, 2023

Levitt Pavilion Los Angeles (Levitt LA) is thrilled to announce its 16th season of summer performances in MacArthur Park. Levitt LA’s summer long coming of age party continues to reflect the cultural mosaic of Los Angeles with an outstanding lineup while enjoying an iconic LA outdoor setting in historic MacArthur Park. The season starts June 10 thru Sept 3, 2023.


Among many events that marked 1973 – US withdrawal from Vietnam, Roe Vs Wade, Elvis Presley’s televised concert from Hawaii, the release of David Bowie’s “Aladdin Sane” stands out as a rock n roll landmark.

Even the album artwork with the iconic lightning bolt across Bowie’s face still resonates today. Most of the tracks on the album were written during Bowie’s US tour as he struggled with his on-stage and off-stage personas. From diamonds to debauchery. Aladdin Sane is a glam rock achievement.

Led by music director Brian Whelan, “The Prettiest Star” celebrates 50 years of Aladdin Sane. The tribute brings together a local cast of singers and players whose own creativity and individuality is inspired by Bowie’s legacy. David Bowie’s ever-changing music styles and song characters still inspire artists from around the world.

‘Battle cries and champagne just in time for sunrise’ who’ll love “Aladdin Sane” vocal performances by Daniel Crook, Laena, llulllllull (Claire McKeown), Polly Jean Crawford, Riki, Scott Yoder, Sugarmill Slim, Tolliver, Vashti Windish + Dj Mr Pharmacist
