As reported, a number of David Bowie’s former band members, friends and other talented musicians from around the world will come together to celebrate the late musician with a series of Celebrating David Bowie Concerts. Acclaimed musician Sting has been added to the lineup of the recently announced show at The Wiltern in Los Angeles on January 24.
Sting will perform a song alongside a lineup featuring Bowie’s longtime “piano man” Mike Garson as well as guitarists Adrian Belew and Earl Slick. Other longtime Bowie collaborators set to appear include musician/producer Mark Plati, guitarist and musical director Gerry Leonard, bassist Gail Ann Dorsey, drummers Sterling Campbell and Zachary Alford along with vocalists Holly Palmer and Cat Russell.
London’s O2 Academy will host the first Celebrating David Bowie concert on what would have been his 70th birthday, this Sunday, January 8. Another event is scheduled for January 10 at Terminal 5 in New York City, while The Wiltern shows are set for January 24 and 25. The Opera House in Sydney, Australia will be the site of concerts on January 29 and 30 and the Tokyo Dome City Hall in Tokyo, Japan will host the finale on February 2.
