It’s hard to believe that two years have passed since David Bowie’s death. His untimely passing was a huge shock, but his music and influence continue to reverberate throughout the culture at large, from his final mesmerizing Blackstar album to the flood of covers and tributes that have popped up since his death.
To honour Bowie’s memory, a collection of his former bandmates came together last year to form Celebrating David Bowie, a tour of rotating musicians playing homage to all eras of Bowie’s career. Spearheaded by longtime keyboardist Mike Garson, Bowie’s most frequent collaborator who performed over 1,000 concerts with The Thin White Duke, along with guitarists Adrian Belew and Gerry Leonard, and special guests including Fishbone’s Angelo Moore (various stops of the tour will also feature performances by Evan Rachel Wood, Sass Jordan, and Joe Sumner, among others) this iteration of the tour imagines what a Bowie live show would look like in 2018, with a setlist spanning his decades-long career.
Below you can check out a recent setlist from the kickoff show of the 2018 North American run of the tour, along with some fan-shot video. Celebrating David Bowie takes over Montreal’s MTelus on Saturday, February 17th. Tickets are $57.50 – $77.50 in advance, and we also have a pair of tickets up for grabs courtesy of evenko! For your chance to win, send your full name to email@example.com with the subject line “BOWIE.” We’ll pick a winner at random by February 16th. Good luck!
