On August 6 and 7, 2016, Boston Rock Opera reunited after a long hiatus to present a three hour tribute to David Bowie; Stardust to Blackstar. Under the arrangement and musical direction of Russ Gershon, we performed Bowie's final opus, Blackstar, in its entirety. In celebration of those magical nights, and in honor of David Bowie's birthday, please enjoy Ron Murphy performing Lazarus at ONCE Ballroom, August 7, 2016.
