More than a dozen of David Bowie's former bandmates and other musicians will join together for a tribute to the artist in 2021.
A Bowie Celebration: Just for One Day was announced for January 8, 2021 - what would have been the singer's 74th birthday - by longtime keyboardist and event organizer Mike Garson. "David's music means so much to so many that we can't wait to perform a beautiful setlist of some of his most memorable hit songs along with a collection of deep cut Bowie gems," Garson wrote.
Confirmed performers include Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails, Billy Corgan of Smashing Pumpkins, Bush's Gavin Rossdale, Perry Farrell of Jane's Addiction, Def Leppard's Joe Elliott, Living Colour frontman Corey Glover, Macy Gray, Judith Hill and more. Over 20 musicians who recorded or toured with Bowie have been confirmed as part of the performance, including longtime producer Tony Visconti, "Fame" co-writer and guitarist Carlos Alomar, and Bowie's complete Reality-era band - the final group he took on tour.
Ticket bundles for the digital event, which will be up for 24 hours after its initial broadcast, are now available.
Garson had previously planned a tour of Bowie alumni performing The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders from Mars and Diamond Dogs in full - ostensibly canceled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
