Celebrating David Bowie will bring the music of the late great David Bowie to life once more for two nights at the Sony Hall. Come once or come twice, they’ll be happy to have you at this hit filled show.
While they say that the human attention span is less than twelve seconds these days, I hope you remember a post I did about the “CELEBRATING DAVID BOWIE” Concerts and if you didn’t, just click HERE to refresh your memory before we continue along. Just a short time ago, I noticed some updated press about the tour and I’m sharing it with you below. Dig in.
The Press Release:
CELEBRATING DAVID BOWIE is excited to announce additional dates for the upcoming 2018 tour. The North American leg of the tour–which features members of David Bowie’s bands including Mike Garson, Earl Slick, Gerry Leonard and Carmine Rojas–has added new stops in Tucson, AZ, Fort Lauderdale, FL, Orlando, FL, Clearwater, FL, Atlanta, GA and New Orleans, LA to its extensive itinerary (see all North American tour dates below). VIP Presale for these additional dates begins tomorrow, January 17 with the general on sale commencing Friday, January 19.

Following the triumphant sold-out start of the tour overseas in France and the U.K. last week, CELEBRATING DAVID BOWIE continues in North America starting on February 10 in Silver Springs, MD at The Fillmore Silver Springs and wraps on March 19 in New Orleans, LA at Tipitina’s during its 27-date trek. 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.
Mike Garson is the CELEBRATING DAVID BOWIE band leader after having made his mark on numerous Bowie albums, including his much talked about masterly solo on the “Aladdin Sane” track. Garson was Bowie’s longest and most frequent band member. They performed together for both David’s first and last concerts in the United States as well as 1,000 concerts around the globe in between. Read an interview with the U.K.’s NME that Garson recently conducted here.

Guitarist Earl Slick worked on landmark Bowie albums such as Diamond Dogs, Young Americans and Reality, among others, and toured extensively with him. Says Slick: “I’m happy to announce that I am officially joining my longtime DB band mates starting on the February leg of the ‘Celebrating David Bowie’ tour. So put on your red shoes and I’ll see you all then.” Vocalist Bernard Fowler is known for his work with The Rolling Stones and other iconic artists. Both Slick and Fowler will join legendary Bowie touring and recording keyboardist, and CdB band leader, Mike Garson–who collaborated with Bowie for longer than any other player–guitarist and previous Bowie band leader Gerry Leonard (A Reality Tour), and Bowie’s Let’s Dance/Serious Moonlight Tour bassist Carmine Rojas.
