Holy Holy featuring Tony Visconti, Woody Woodmansey and Heaven 17’s Glenn Gregory perform ‘The Rise & Fall of Ziggy Stardust & The Spiders From Mars’ at Sheffield’s Foundry on the 14th April 2017.
Holy Holy comprises Tony Visconti on bass, Woody Woodmansey on drums, Glenn Gregory on vocals, James Stevenson from The Alarm, Gene Loves Jezebel, Gen X, The Cult and Chelsea on guitar and Berenice Scott and Jessica Morgan on keyboards.
Tony Visconti worked closely with Bowie throughout his career producing with Bowie no less than 12 classic Bowie albums, ‘David Bowie’ (1969), ‘The Man Who Sold the World’ (70), ‘David Live’ (74), ‘Young Americans’ (75), ‘Low’ (77), ‘Heroes’ (77), ‘Stage’ (78), ‘Lodger’ (79), ‘Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps) (80), ‘Heathen’ (2002), ‘Reality’ (2003), ‘The Next Day’ (2013) and Bowie’s final album ‘Black Star’ in 2016.
Tony produced 7 albums with T Rex including their classic Electric Warrior album. He has also produced and worked with Georgie Fame, Badfinger, Gentle Giant, Caravan, Osibisa, Thin Lizzy, Adam Ant, The Kaiser Chiefs, Manic Street Preachers, Morrissey and Iggy Pop amongst many others.
In 2014 Woody and Tony formed Holy Holy, specifically to perform ‘The Man who Sold the World’ album live. Tony not only produced this classic 1970 album but also played bass on the album with Woody on drums and the legendary late Mick Ronson on guitar. The group undertook a short tour in the UK in September 2014 and a larger scale tour of the UK and Japan in the summer of 2015. In January 2016 they toured the east coast of the United States and followed this with a full tour of US and Canadian cities in Spring of this year.
The Spiders all hailed from Hull, so to mark the city being designated ‘City of Culture 2017’ two concerts with Holy Holy were organised, but this time doing the iconic Ziggy Stardust album. Both sold out in a day.
The band Holy Holy, featuring the original Spiders drummer Woody Woodmansey, long time Bowie collaborator and legendary producer Tony Visconti and Heaven 17’s Glenn Gregory, will perform the first ever live rendition of The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders From Mars in its entirety.
