In his memorable role as Pelé dos Santos, a singing sailor, Seu Jorge performed several of David Bowie's hits in Portuguese with the accompaniment of his acoustic guitar. His unique renditions were well-received by fans and Bowie himself, inspiring the tribute tour.
Speaking of Seu Jorge's work the late Bowie stated: 'Had Seu Jorge not recorded my songs in Portuguese, I would never have heard this new level of beauty which he has imbued them with'

The 2019 UK show will mark his first performance in the country since playing at the Royal Albert Hall in 2017.
