Celebrating David Bowie announces 2018 European tour

Story by Jack Foley

CELEBRATING David Bowie is back for a 2018 tour throughout Europe and North America with a new Bowie show spanning his entire career and asking the question, ‘What might a David Bowie 2018 tour set list consist of?’

VIP tickets will go on sale on Tuesday, September 26 with the general on sale starting on Friday, September 29 at 10am. Visit the Celebrating David Bowie website for more information.

More than just a mere salute, Celebrating David Bowie keeps David’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 band along with previous Bowie band leaders, guitarist/vocalist Adrian Belew (Sound & Vision Tour) and guitarist Gerry Leonard (A Reality Tour).

Between them, Mike, Adrian and Gerry have over 30 years experience of recording, writing and playing live with Bowie.

Joining Mike, Adrian and Gerry will be Bowie’s Let’s Dance/Serious Moonlight Tour bassist Carmine Rojas as well as CdB 2017 standouts 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.

CdB creator and producer Angelo Bundini (aka guitarist Scrote) is also back and excited about the concept for the new show.

“After the last tour, I didn’t really imagine playing more shows because it was insanely difficult to pull off. David’s last tour was in 2004, so I began to wonder what he might do if he were to tour again today. That’s what we’re presenting in 2018.”

The large rotating ensemble with world class multi-instrumentalists changing song to song will perform a show highlighting elements that influenced Bowie and that in turn Bowie influenced: pop culture experimentation, art, fashion, science and futurism.
