"A Bowie Celebration" features key alumni musicians of David Bowie's bands from across the decades. Anchored by Mike Garson along with a revolving selection of additional performers, which include Gerry Leonard, Carmine Rojas, Kevin Armstrong and Alan Childs, this tour will focus on David Bowie's fifth album, "Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars", and his eighth studio album "Diamond Dogs" — both ranked amongst the greatest albums of all time.
