BECU ZooTunes presented by Carter Subaru is back for another season of outdoor concerts, a Seattle summer tradition celebrating more than 30 years. Enjoy live music performances against one of Seattle’s most beautiful outdoor backdrops: Woodland Park Zoo’s picturesque North Meadow.


In commemoration of David Bowie’s recent passing, Seu Jorge performs a special tribute to him while recreating the set to the film A Life Aquatic on stage alongside screens crafted as boat sails that will be displaying images from the film.

Seu Jorge, one of Brazil’s most talented contemporary singers, rose to international fame in the Wes Anderson film A Life Aquatic. In his acclaimed role as Pelé dos Santos, a singing sailor, Seu Jorge performed several of David Bowie’s songs in the film. But in a twist, he did it in Portuguese, accompanying himself simply on acoustic guitar. Seu Jorge’s adaptations in Portuguese of David Bowie’s music underscore the breadth and depth of his compositions and have gone on to have a significant cultural impact.

“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.” — David Bowie

  11. cw June 6, 2017 at 5:04 pm #

    I would love to go to this for a much needed date night. I haven’t been to a zoo concert in years.

  12. kellie June 6, 2017 at 6:07 pm #

    We haven’t been to a concert at Woodland Park in several years, and this would be a GREAT one to attend!

  13. Geoff June 6, 2017 at 9:51 pm #

    “Supposedly Cousteau and his cronies invented the idea of putting walkie-talkies into the helmet. But we made ours with a special rabbit ear on the top so we could pipe in some music.”

    What a great show for the zoo! We would love to win tickets to this!

  14. Jess H June 7, 2017 at 8:42 am #

    I haven’t been to a show at the zoo yet and this seems perfect.

  15. rebecca dare June 8, 2017 at 6:56 am #

    Would love to go to a concert at the zoo — and a tribute to David Bowie!

  16. Niftastic June 8, 2017 at 9:39 am #

    Sweeet! Finally, a summer response to Zoolights!!

  17. Melaina V. June 8, 2017 at 1:21 pm #

    Well first, I’d like to attend because I love Seu Jorge’s contribution to an amazing cult classic. But really it’s because my BF didn’t get any of the David Bowie references when Gillian Anderson played him in “American Gods,” and that made me sad so I’d love to bring him to explode him to as many Bowie references as possible. Thanks for reading!

    • Melaina V. June 8, 2017 at 1:25 pm #

      *expose I mean, Bowie is astronomical, but I don’t plan on my BF blowing up.

  18. Tina June 8, 2017 at 3:18 pm #

    I miss Bowie!

  19. Kate June 8, 2017 at 3:21 pm #

    Sunshine, bowie, seu jorge, the zoo – doesnt get much better than that!!!

  20. heather June 8, 2017 at 3:24 pm #

    This is quite possibly the BEST giveaway Pipeline has offered!!! Would LOVE to go!

  21. Rebekah LaSala June 8, 2017 at 3:27 pm #

    Well…I think I really need to win b/c David Bowie’s music saved my life, literally. I grew up in an abusive home growing up and I did not feel I had much to live for at the age of 15, so I was going to end it (suicide), but I heard the song, “Ground control to Major Tom” and that song changed my life. I became a really strong Bowie fan and have been listening to him ever since. I am 44 now. I just got priced out of my apartment by $900 and I have no job and am not able to afford to go anywhere. This concert would mean the world to me. I also have a chronic illness and chronic pain and music is very healing for me. To go would mean the world to me.

    I would love to experience concert at the ZOO! 🎶

  23. Robin June 8, 2017 at 7:54 pm #

  26. Maggie Burgess June 10, 2017 at 8:22 pm #

    Been hearing amazing things about these concerts at the zoo, but have never been! Would love for this to be my first (hopefully of many!)

  27. Naomi Schmidt June 11, 2017 at 1:03 pm #

    This event sounds amazing! I have always wanted to go to a zootunes concert and I love David Bowie and Sue.

  28. Gulbin June 11, 2017 at 9:37 pm #

    I am such a big fan of Seu Jorge and loved watching him sing David Bowie songs in the movie Life Aquatic! I would love to see him live, especially at Woodland Park!

  40. Aleda Escalona June 15, 2017 at 11:07 pm #

    Ridiculous I know, but I only recently watched A Life Aquatic. I was taken by Seu Jorge’s performance, looked him up, bought his music, and found he’d be performing here. It’s all rather serendipitous. Getting to see the show would be pretty magical. Thanks for the opportunity.

  41. Mariella Tzoncheva June 16, 2017 at 12:25 pm #

    Wow Seu Jorge performing live. That would be a once in a lifetime treat for me and my daughter. We love brazilian music and David Bowie of course <3

  42. Joe June 16, 2017 at 3:06 pm #

    My 7 yo daughter would love this! And Life Aquatic is such a wonderfully quirky film.

  43. Steven walker June 17, 2017 at 1:59 pm #

    I would love love love to go. That movie was awesome to say the least.
