Celebrating David Bowie Tour to Hit in Early 2018

3rd October 2017 | Category: Las Vegas

An array of prominent musicians that worked with the late legend, David Bowie, during his esteemed career have joined their forces together for the venture that will kick off at Salle Pleyel in Paris, January 10 and end at Roseland Theatre in Portland, Oregon on March,11, 2018.

“Celebrating David Bowie” tour will consist of 26 concerts across Europe, U.S. and Canada. The artists will perform all the biggest Bowie songs the fans expect from 1969 “Space Oddity” to 2016 “Blackstar” with tickets for the tour available for purchase here.

His fans have already enjoyed a series of shows earlier this year since members of various David Bowie backing bands and the complete list of musicians that supported him on his 2003-2004 “A Reality Tour” came together to celebrate and honour him on what would have been his 70th birthday. Since the tour was a success, Angelo Bundini, organizer and producer of this tour was flooded with offers to do more shows so they are teaming up again for a 2018 tribute tour.

Among the many that are set to perform on “Celebrating David Bowie Tour” are pianist Mike Garson, King Crimson’s Adrian Belew, bassist Carmine Rojas, Fishbone lead singer Angelo Moore, Sting’s son Joe Sumner, Gerry Leonard and Guatemalan singer  Gaby Moreno. This extensive lineup stretches over entire Bowie’s career. Many special guests are expected across the live shows.

Bundini, who is not only the organizer of this spectacle but also performs as a guitarist, said that so far the shows were about communities coming together to reflect on David and his music but that’s not the case on this tour.

“David was famous for not being nostalgic so this time we’re going to follow his lead by being more Bowie future than Bowie past. It’s the same bellowed Bowie catalogue but a whole new approach that’s even more Bowie than our last shows.”

Last year, the startling news of David’s death after battling cancer, left everyone saddened and seeking solace. He was a leading figure in popular music for over five decades and this could be our chance to honour his innovative music, to honour him and his legacy.

Tickets can be purchased here.
