Join key alumni musicians of David Bowie's bands from across the decades, anchored by his longest standing member Mike Garson along with a revolving selection of additional amazing Bowie band alumni including Earl Slick, Gerry Leonard, Carmine Rojas, Mark Plati and Charlie Sexton.  We're on the road with A BOWIE CELEBRATION: The David Bowie Alumni Tour featuring an unforgettable and critically acclaimed evening of Bowie songs with world-class vocalists and an ever rotating mix of hits and deep cuts. Note that not all band members will perform on all dates.

As Westworld's Evan Rachel Wood recently proclaimed on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon after having been guest featured on a number of shows on tour with the alumni band, "It's not a cover band. It's the actual band. It's as close as you're going to get to Bowie."

Mike performed with David on both his first and last concerts in the United States as well as 1,000 concerts around the globe in between.
