The upcoming “Celebrating David Bowie” tribute tour of North America this autumn will feature Todd Rundgren and King Crimson’s Adrian Belew.
Rundgren and Belew shared details of the tour and said they will be joined by Spacehog’s Royston Langdon, Fishbone’s Angelo Moore and Jeffrey Gaines on the 15-date tour that will see them pay tribute to David Bowie.
Rundgren was a contemporary and friend of Bowie, while Belew was a member of Bowie’s band in 1978 and 1979.
Bassist Angeline Saris, drummer Michael Urbano, saxophonist Ron Dziubla, and guitarist Angelo Bundini, who put together the first “Celebrating David Bowie” tour in 2017 are part of the forthcoming tour’s backing band.
Bundini and Miles Copeland are the producers of the tour.
“One of the things we’re doing differently on this tour is featuring a three-guitar attack,” Bundini said. “David has always been famous for his spectacular guitarists – the epic solos of Mick Ronson, the bluesy feel of Earl Slick, the funkiness of Carlos Alomar and Nile Rodgers, the bombast of Reeves Gabrels, and the otherworldly guitar of Adrian Belew who is still one of the most original guitarists working today.”
“To explore all of these guitar sides of Bowie’s songs, we’re highlighting Adrian’s brilliance, Todd’s guitar wizardry, and whatever guitar mayhem I can muster in between,” he added.
