A special double tribute concert featuring the music of two of the most influential pop musicians of the 1980s will be held in the municipal auditorium in Benalmádena Costa on Saturday 1 September at 9.30pm.

The concert will feature the greatest hits of legendary star man, David Bowie, and pop's flamboyant virtuoso, Prince.

The Marbella-based Spiders from Marbs, a band consisting of several members of popular Costa punk band The Reinfected, will perform some of David Bowie's most celebrated hits and will include songs from the different stages of Bowie's career, from the androgynous alien, Ziggy Stardust, to Aladdin Sane and The Thin White Duke.

Purple Reign is a seven piece band fronted by Tomas Henry, a musician that has been performing a Prince tribute act for more than 15 years.

Born in the UK, this multi-talented musician possesses an uncanny likeness to Prince, complete with his mannerisms, musicality and extravagant dance routines. The show, which has already been performed in the UK and Germany, will feature hits from Prince's most popular era and will include Purple Rain, Sign of the Times and Diamonds and Pearls.

Tickets 16 euros are available from outlets or from the ticket office on the night of the concert. www.costadeldisco.com
