Description

Ziggy Stardust takes us on a Tragical Mystery Tour through the life of a nearly-was rock star! Drama, tragedy and hilarity ensue to a live rocking backdrop. Does this poignant inner struggle lead to damnation or salvation? We shed light on some of the more bizarre choices of our would-be hero, all whilst hurtling through this life of crazed adventure. Or is it all merely an alter-ego? Co-starring Lemmy, Axl, Blondie, Joey Ramone and Joan Jett amongst others. 'I love Lee, he's dangerous and doesn't give a f*ck and I love that' (Chris Thorpe).

The Stage [paywall] (3/5 stars) 5 days ago

“Just a quick warning,” says Lee Mark Jones, poking his head out from behind the curtain. “Things will fuck up.” And they do, but that is part of the charm of A Rock‘n’Roll Suicide!, Jones’ autobiographical show about his rollercoaster ride through the music business. It’s ragged and rough around...

What about the stories of those who came so close but, through a strong cocktail of bad luck and drunken decisions, didn’t? This autobiographical performance by Gypsy Lee Pistolero (AKA Lee Mark-Jones) fits such erratic...
