David Bowie to be celebrated with live concerts
Original article from: http://www.m-magazine.co.uk/news/david-bowie-celebrated-live-concerts/
David Bowie’s band members, friends, and an ensemble of touring musicians are coming together for a series of concerts to recognise what would have been the late star’s seventieth birthday.
Taking place on 8 January, the concert series will take place in cities associated with the musician with the London gig to be held at Brixton Academy.
According to organisers, ‘all take place in cities that have a strong connection with David Bowie and his work. All feature the core 30 musicians travelling, plus another 40 or more local musicians, to create a sound like no other.’
Bowie’s close friend Gary Oldman, who delivered an emotional speech about David at The BRIT Awards earlier this year, and this giant ensemble from Los Angeles and New York City, are joined in London by former David Bowie band members Mike Garson, Earl Slick, Adrian Belew, Mark Plati, Gerry Leonard, Gail Ann Dorsey, Sterling Campbell, Zachary Alford, Holly Palmer and Catherine Russell. Other special guests and gigs are to be announced.
All proceeds from the show will benefit the Children and the Arts charity.
