In anticipation of this weekend's North American tour launch this Saturday (February 10) near Washington, D.C., 'Celebrating David Bowie' is excited to reveal the initial list of special guest stars that will be joining the lineup throughout the tour's 27-date run, including Evan Rachel Wood, Joe Sumner, Mr Hudson, Corey Glover and more.

The 'Celebrating David Bowie' full band features key members of David Bowie's bands including Mike Garson (keys/CdB band leader), Earl Slick (guitar), Gerry Leonard (guitar) and Carmine Rojas (bass), along with vocalist Bernard Fowler, who is known for his work with The Rolling Stones, and 2017 Grammy nominee, vocalist Gaby Moreno. Garson was Bowie's longest and most frequent band member, having performed together for both David's first and last concerts in the United States as well as 1,000 concerts around the globe in between.

Following its official kickoff this Saturday in Silver Spring, MD -- the U.S. city where Bowie first stepped foot in when entering the country in September 1971 -- 'Celebrating David Bowie' will travel throughout North America, stopping in such cities as Philadelphia, New York City (February 12 at Irving Plaza), Boston, Montreal, Toronto, Detroit, Minneapolis, Chicago, Denver, Las Vegas, Los Angeles (February 28 at The Wiltern), Mexico City, San Francisco, Tucson, Seattle, Portland, Fort Lauderdale, and Atlanta, among others, before wrapping March 19 in New Orleans.
