David Bowie Collaborators Announce 2018 Tribute Tour

The “Celebrating David Bowie” tour will feature pianist Mike Garson, King Crimson’s Adrian Belew, Gerry Leonard, Carmine Rojas, Fishbone lead singer Angelo Moore, and Guatemalan singer and guitarist Gaby Moreno.

Career-spanning David Bowie collaborators, including touring musicians and artists featured on original recordings, are teaming up for a 2018 tribute tour spanning 26 cities across the US and Europe. The “Celebrating David Bowie” tour will feature pianist Mike Garson, King Crimson’s Adrian Belew, Gerry Leonard, Carmine Rojas, Fishbone lead singer Angelo Moore, and Guatemalan singer and guitarist Gaby Moreno. The tour site also advertises “additional special guests.”
The lineup stretches nearly the entirety of Bowie’s career. Garson accompanied the rock legend on his 1972-1973 Ziggy Stardust tour and recorded piano tracks for Aladdin Sane; Belew accompanied Bowie on several world tours as a guitarist and later served as music director for Bowie’s 1990 Sound+Vision Tour; Rojas played bass guitar on hits such as “Let’s Dance” and “Modern, Love;” and Leonard recorded guitar on later albums such as Heathen (2002), Reality (2003), and Bowie’s penultimate album, The Next Day (2013).

Other artists on the bill have earned their Bowie stripes outside of direct collaboration: Angelo Moore performed a tribute cover of “Ashes to Ashes” at a 2016 Celebrating David Bowie concert in LA, a show that also included Ewan McGregor, Gary Oldman, and Seal. Gaby Moreno performed “Five Years” at another Bowie Tribute concert organized by Oldman in San Francisco the same year. The tour kicks off in Paris on January 10, 2018.
