Gary Oldman narrating the ‘David Bowie Is’ virtual app
The David Bowie Is app, which is a VR mobile version of the hit travelling Bowie Is exhibition, will be released on IOS and Android on January 8 (which would've been Bowie's 72nd birthday). Taking you through the exhibit, virtually, will be the voice of Bowie's old friend Gary Oldman. Bowie and Oldman met in the '80s, were in the Basquiat biopic together, and Gary starred in Bowie's video for "The Next Day." "This brings the amazing David Bowie Is exhibition to a wider audience," says Gary. "It’s great that his fans get to experience it. It was a privilege to be involved."
The Bowie Is app features show’s costumes, videos, handwritten lyrics, original works of art, Bowie’s music and narration, and everything the physical exhibit had, along with dozens of items that weren't in the exhibit.
