Missy Higgins Leads ‘Fuck You, Cancer’ All-star David Bowie Tribute Concert

Written by Emmy Mack on January 21, 2016

“We’re sick of you Cancer, you can go get fucked.”

A mix-tape of Aussie musicians are teaming up to raise a fully erect middle finger in the direction of cancer, in honour of the blackstarman, David Bowie, whose surprise death was a painful reminder of humanity’s ongoing battle against this disease.

Missy Higgins heads up a long list of poets, comedians, singers, songwriters and cabaret performers who will join forces for the charity event and live art tribute in Melbourne this February.

Organisers are promising live art installations, a performance of Bowie’s final single Lazarus featuring the David Bowie Dancers, plus cover versions, stories, re-interpretations and singalongs.

All proceeds from the evening will be donated to the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, to help further their important work in cancer treatment, research and education.

Fuck You, Cancer – A David Bowie Tribute will take place on Sunday, 7th February at Collingwood’s The Gasometer Hotel.

Check out all the details below.
