The David Bowie Alumni Tour





Join key alumni musicians of David Bowie's bands from across the decades, anchored by his longest standing member Mike Garson along with other amazing Bowie band alumni including Earl Slick, Gerry Leonard, Carmine Rojas and Mark Plati.  We're gearing up to head back 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.

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."
