    Some of my favorite people are performing at this event and I’ve been sick for months and just getting better enough to come out again.

    I gotta thing for one of the sound engineers!
    I don’t suppose that’s a valid reason tho.

    How better to stand with the darkness this year than by following Bowie’s star. I would love to attend and take my sweetie. Thanks, PDX Pipeline!

    This is a great tribute to the beloved Bowie and I’d love to experience it!

    I’d love to go. But I wouldn’t want to take a ticket from the woman w the hots for the sound man. Could go as her wingman.

    Never been to this theatre and would love a Bowie tribute to be my first outing there!

    My Partner and I would love to go to this. We are aboth long time Bowie fans & our mutual love of DB kind of brought us together. We originally just worked together but when Bowie died he reached out & asked if I was doing alright. This was the start of our “Non work related” communication (And conviced me of his good guy status) . We eventually became close and got together, it’s been a year now. Bowie is responsible for a lot of moments in my life , but this is one that I will never forget & always be grateful for.

    I would love to go to this show to celebrate the anniversary of his life, and death, the right way. Surrounded by fellow aliens glamming it up, listening to the music that molded our lives. RIP David Bowie, best Vampire, Goblin King and Rockstar to grace this planet.

    My boyfriend LOVES David Bowie, even dressed up as Ziggy for Halloween and went skating at Burnside in costume. His mama has been calling him Starman since he was a kid. He would die if I got him tickets to this.

    oh wow, i have been feeling bowies absence and would love to attend.

  23. Lamby Pants January 5, 2017 at 4:09 pm #

    I’ve yet to go to the Star Theater. Like everyone else, I love Bowie and would further love to hear this Super Group shred through his catalog. Shred.

    I have been blessed and honored to have seen him live in concert five times, including his last touring show, The Reality Tour. My first album I ever owned was Ziggy Startdust which I got when I was 12 years old. He has been my all time number one performer and would love to take my wife to this show not only to celebrate his birthday, but as an early birthday gift for myself. Thank you for this opportunity
