The Celebrating David Bowie tour will return in 2018 after receiving critical acclaim for its initial shows earlier this year. The tour, which originally came together to honor Bowie on what would have been his 70th birthday, will head out across America in February and March.
“We were flooded with offers to do more shows before we even started the last tour,” said producer Angelo Bundini to Rolling Stone.
The show’s lineup will differ slightly from last year. Keyboardist Mike Garson, who worked with Bowie from the early 70s until 2006, will head up the band. Adrian Below (King Crimson, David Bowie), Gerry Leonard (David Bowie), Carmine Rojas (David Bowie), Angelo Moore (Fishbone), Joe Sumner and Gaby Mareno round it out.
According to Bundini, the focus of the show will be “more Bowie future than Bowie past” with a “whole new approach”. “We have some amazing surprises planned this time,” he said.
Last year’s tour boasted a number of guest appearances including Joe Elliott (Def Leppard) and Sting.
