As such, there are some special activities planned for the month of January in order to properly celebrate Bowie, his life, legacy and impeccable career of music and creative inspiration. A series of fundraising concerts will take place around the globe, with some of his lifelong collaborators, friends and musical peers taking part.
The concerts all take place in cities that have a strong connection with David Bowie and his work – London, New York City, Los Angeles, Sydney, & Tokyo. All feature a core two dozen musicians traveling plus many local, regional, and national musicians to create a sound like no other.
The core ensemble includes former star Bowie band members Mike Garson, Adrian Belew, Earl Slick, members of David’s last two touring bands, Angelo Moore from Fishbone, Latin Grammy Award Winner Gaby Moreno, Bernard Fowler from The Rolling Stones, Joe Sumner, Scrote, and a vast extended musical family who play with or have played with Tom Waits, Sting, Seal, Herbie Hancock, De La Soul, Brian Eno, Iggy Pop, Smashing Pumpkins, B52s, Dr. Dre, Burt Bacharach, David Byrne, Todd Rundgren, Prince, Neil Young, and Lenny Kravitz make up the core ensemble.
Needless to say, this should be an excellent night paying homage to one of the most timeless and influential artists to ever lay down a track in the studio. It also comes as no surprise that each gig will inevitably have ‘special guests’ in tow to make the proceedings even more unforgettable.
