To mark 50 years since David Bowie’s Space Oddity was unleashed on the world, The Thin White Duke’s band is bringing its “A Bowie Celebration: The David Bowie Alumni Tour” to New Zealand.
The tour, headed by Bowie’s musical director and longest serving band member Mike Garson, will feature world-class musicians who have performed with David over a period of more than 40 years including Gerry Leonard, Carmine Rojas, Mark Plati and drummer John Lee.
These Bowie alumni band members were friends of David’s, worked and performed with him on more than two dozen albums spanning from Aladdin Sane to The Next Day and world tours beginning with the Ziggy Stardust tour in 1972 through David’s final Reality tour in 2003.
A Bowie Celebration also features unforgettable and critically-acclaimed vocalists, such as legendary rock group Living Colour’s Corey Glover and crowd favourite, Joe Sumner (he is Sting’s son in all ways) along with some special guests to be announced. With a mix of top hits and deep cuts, it’s Bowie friends, playing Bowie music, in true Bowie style.
