“Celebrating David Bowie” Announces 2018 Tour Dates

Some of David Bowie's longtime collaborators will be taking their Celebrating David Bowie show on the road next year.

Keyboardist Mike Garson and guitarists Adrian Belew, Gerry Leonard and Carmine Rojas will be joined by Angelo Moore of Fishbone and others for the trek, which begins January 10 in Paris with six European shows, then comes to North America for 20-show run that begins February 10 in Silver Spring, Md., and wraps March 11 in Portland, Ore.

Several of these shows have been held as one-offs around the world, and Garson says in a statement that, "The shows had a magic because our intent was to celebrate David with as much love and respect as we could. So many lovely artists from all around the globe contributed and I loved all seven shows as each musician and artist brought their own way of self-expression."

The tour announcement promises "special guests and other former Bowie band members who will make surprise appearances along the way."
