World renowned Bowie keyboardist Mike Garson is excited to announce that there will be
more tour dates with fellow key alumni musicians of David Bowie’s bands from across the decades for a show called ‘A BOWIE CELEBRATION’ with Bowie band alumni including Earl
Slick, Gerry Leonard and Carmine Rojas in addition to Garson.
European shows across Ireland, UK, France, Austria, Germany, Holland, Belgium & Switzerland for this unforgettable and critically acclaimed evening of Bowie’s songs are
scheduled for early 2019 and will feature world class vocalists including Rolling Stones singer Bernard Fowler, Living Colour’s Corey Glover and Joe Sumner plus an ever-rotating mix of Bowie hits and deep cut fan favourites.

Keyboardist and band leader Mike Garson, the longest-standing member of any of Bowie’s bands, who performed with David at over 1,000 concerts around the globe says: «This is a
dream band with each member at the top of their game. Add to that the world’s best fans singing and dancing along with us and the power of David’s music stays alive with the same intent as when we played with him.”

The band also features legendary guitarist Earl Slick, who worked on landmark Bowie albums such as Diamond Dogs, David Live, Station To Station, Young Americans, Reality
and Bowie’s penultimate album The Next Day along with Bowie band leader Gerry Leonard (A Reality Tour) and the Let’s Dance/Serious Moonlight Tour bassist Carmine Rojas. Between them, they have over 40 years experience of recording, writing and playing live with Bowie.

Earl Slick “I’m having a blast with these shows. It’s so great to play with this amazing band of alumni who were there with David going all the way back. When I see the looks on the faces of the audience at our shows I see the value in what we’re doing. Mission accomplished!”

Gerry Leonard: “I am super excited to be continuing to bring David’s music to his loyal fans with A Bowie Celebration. The combination of having his real band playing his music for his
dedicated fans makes for a truly special night every time. It’s such a wonderful way to keep David’s memory and musical legacy alive.”

Carmine Rojas: “It is really inspirational to witness how excited the audience gets with each song we play. It’s like people are reminded how prolific David’s music was and they can’t
stop singing and dancing. Fans can’t believe they are actually hearing the music as it was originally recorded by original musicians of David’s bands. That’s what sets this apart from
anything else. It’s truly a spiritual event. I can’t wait to continue the Celebration!”
