Celebrating David Bowie is back with a spectacular lineup of Todd Rundgren, Adrian Belew (King Crimson, Scrote, Royston Langdon (Spacehog), Ron Dziubla (Ricky Martin/Joe Bonamassa), Angelina Saris (Narada Michael Walden), Travis McNabb (Better than Ezra), and in select cities Angelo Moore (Fishbone) and Jeffrey Gaines. The tour kicked off in San Diego, CA October 6th and the following night stopped at the Saban Theater in Beverly Hills. This show included not only Angelo Moore, but also Bowie guitarist Eric Schermerhorn, Pat Metheny keyboardist Chris Fishman, and none other than Joe Bonamassa. Celebrating David Bowie honor’s Bowie’s legacy with various musicians playing his biggest hits. Bowie was easily one of the most influential, iconic, and greatest artists of the 20th century. At the time of his passing two days after his 69th birthday, January 10th, 2016 it had been 12 years since his last full performance and on his birthday his final album Blackstar was released. Bowie was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996 and received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2006. 14 of Bowie’s albums went Gold with another six Platinum, and one two-time Platinum.
The setlist contained nearly 30 songs spanning 50+ years of Bowie’s music. Rundgren and Belew performed most of the show and Moore and Langdon on six songs. To name a few hits performed throughout the night “Young Americans,” “Starman,” “Ziggy Stardust,” “Fame,” “Space Oddity,” and “Rebel Rebel.” Bonamassa came out to play Stevie Ray Vaughn’s guitar parts on “Let’s Dance,” towards the end of the show and “All the Young Dudes” was the last song before the two-song encore. The show came to a conclusion with a finale of “Suffragette City,” and “Heroes.” Where you saw Bowie live or never got to experience the magic of his performances, this is a close way to hear all those legendary songs live.
