Currently reading : A tribute to the life and music of Klaus Nomi – Joey Arias & Kristian Hoffman: lightning strikes
After a recent sell out run at Soho Theatre New York underground legend JOEY ARIAS returns to London with collaborator KRISTIAN HOFFMAN to the ICA on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th February for LIGHTNING STRIKES, a tribute to the life and music of Klaus Nomi.
Arias and acclaimed singer/songwriter Hoffman celebrate the life of the late German counter-tenor KLAUS NOMI who would have turned 70 in 2014. Along with songs by Nomi, the show also features 70s rock anthems, popular standards as well as original material.
In a career spanning singing with David Bowie; hanging out with Andy Warhol; compering Cirque du Soleil’s Zumanity; and sold out shows at London’s Southbank Centre and Soho Theatre – New York diva Arias is a musical force to be reckoned with. Fellow East Village stalwart Hoffman was an active figure in NYC’s 1980s No Wave scene and wrote some of Nomi’s signature songs (‘Nomi Song,’ ‘Total Eclipse, ‘Simple Man’).
Featuring an eclectic musical selection spanning everything from Nomi to classic rock, Lighting Strikes is both an homage to Klaus Nomi and a dynamic musical collaboration sure to thrill fans of Arias and Hoffman alike.
