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!"
