More than just a mere salute, CELEBRATING DAVID BOWIE keeps Bowie’s music alive with musicians who worked closely with him throughout his career and other top musicians greatly influenced by him.
Legendary Bowie touring and recording keyboardist Mike Garson, who collaborated with Bowie for longer than any other player, will be heading up the CdB band for the North American leg, which features guitarist Earl Slick, guitarist and previous Bowie band leader Gerry Leonard (A Reality Tour), vocalist Bernard Fowler, and Bowie’s Let’s Dance/Serious Moonlight Tour bassist Carmine Rojas. Between them, they have over 30 years experience of recording, writing and playing live with Bowie.
“I have worked with over 1000 singers but never anyone like David,” said Garson. “He had an infinite source of music flowing through him, and his creativity was boundless. His sharing of the stage with his musicians was extraordinary, and he was a team player. That is why we need many singers to encompass his work.”
Also joining the tour will be CdB 2017 standout Fishbone’s Angelo Moore and 2017 Grammy nominee Gaby Moreno as well as special guests and other former Bowie band members who will make surprise appearances along the way.
“One of the things that stuck out while abroad was our group visit to the David Bowie Is… exhibit in Tokyo and how they cover so much of his life, music, fashion, and creative processes. I’m excited we will be doing more of his unique aesthetic in our upcoming shows,” said Moore.
“It was an incredible and emotional ride for me. Sharing the stage with some of the most brilliant musicians, playing these iconic songs from one of the best artists this world gave us, is something quite unlike anything else I’ve ever experienced,” said Moreno.
