David Bowie's former bandmates are once again uniting to pay tribute to the late legend with a live-streamed tribute concert.

A Bowie Celebration follows last year's successful streaming event and marks what would have been Bowie's 75th birthday: Jan. 8, 2022. Organized by Bowie's longtime keyboardist Mike Garson, the performances will utilize some of the singer's most recognizable sidemen, including guitarists Earl Slick and Charlie Sexton, bassist Carmine Rojas, drummer Omar Hakim, and saxophonist Stan Harrison.
