Def Leppard And Duran Duran Members, Living Colour, Walk The Moon To Partake In A Bowie Celebration

Thursday, 09 December 2021 Written by Jon Stickler

An all-star line-up has been announced for the return of A Bowie Celebration.

Scheduled to take place on January 8, on what would have been the late David Bowie’s 75th birthday, the second annual livestream tribute will honour the sixth anniversary of the icon's passing.

Spearheaded by Mike Garson, Bowie's longtime collaborator, the virtual festival's house band will include fellow Bowie alumni such as Earl Slick, Charlie Sexton, Alan Childs, Steve Elson, Mark Guiliana, Omar Hakim, Stan Harrison, Tim Lefebvre, Gerry Leonard and Carmine Rojas. Kitten Kuroi, Maiya Sykes and Jules Galli are also singing.

Def Leppard lead singer Joe Elliott, Duran Duran's Simon Le Bon and John Taylor, Living Colour, Rob Thomas, Gary Oldman and more are also set to celebrate the life and music of one of the most influential artists of all time.

The event will also mark the 35th anniversary of Bowie's classic fantasy movie Labyrinth, with a special performance from actress Evan Rachel Wood, and an appearance by Brian Henson. Additional guest vocalists set to perform include Gail Ann Dorsey, Bernard Fowler, Judith Hill, Gaby Moreno, Gretchen Parlato, and Joe Sumner, with more still to be revealed. Garson said:

"It's an honour to be able to continue to share David Bowie's music with the world. I’m excited for everyone to be able to experience this very special show we’ve got in store in celebration of what would have been David’s 75th birthday with the bandmates he recorded and performed with, plus a great group of guest artists who he was such an influence to."

The show will be available on RollingLiveStudios.com for 24 hours, beginning at 6pm PST/2am GMT. A portion of the ticket sales will go to Save the Children, the beneficiary of funds raised from Bowie's 50th Birthday Concert held in 1997 at Madison Square Garden.
