CELEBRATING DAVID BOWIE
MARCH 14TH - PARKER PLAYHOUSE
Tickets are available at www.ParkerPlayhouse.com
In what is one of the most interesting and unique upcoming concerts here in South Florida - CELEBRATING DAVID BOWIE will be coming to the Parker Playhouse on March 14th.
The 27-date North American trek features members of David Bowie’s bands including Mike Garson (the CELEBRATING DAVID BOWIE band leader, who was Bowie’s longest and most frequent band member having performed together for both David’s first and last concerts in the U.S. as well as 1,000 concerts around the globe in between), Earl Slick, Gerry Leonard and Carmine Rojas. Between them, they have over 30 years experience of recording, writing and playing live with Bowie.
Also along for the CdB tour are vocalist Bernard Fowler, who is known for his work with The Rolling Stones, and 2017 Grammy nominee Gaby Moreno, plus special guests and other former Bowie band members who may make surprise appearances along the way. More than just a mere salute, CELEBRATING DAVID BOWIE keeps Bowie’s music alive with musicians who worked closely with him throughout his career and other top musicians greatly influenced by him.
Prior to the tour’s triumphant start overseas on January 10, Mike Garson spoke with the U.K.’s NME; read that interview here.
The rotating ensemble with world class multi-instrumentalists changing song to song will perform a career-spanning show highlighting elements that influenced Bowie and that in turn Bowie influenced: pop culture experimentation, art, fashion, science and futurism.
Previous special guests from the 2017 CdB shows included: Sting, Gary Oldman, Seal, Perry Farrell, The B-52’s’ Kate Pierson, Ewan McGregor, Simon Le Bon, Gavin Rossdale, La Roux, Joe Elliott, Mr Hudson, Gail Ann Dorsey, Spandau Ballet’s Steve Norman, Corey Taylor, Ian Astbury, Darren Criss, Tony Hadley, Living Colour, The London Community Gospel Choir, and The Harlem Gospel Choir, among many others.
