Five cities across the globe have been selected for this never to be repeated celebration of David Bowie’s immense body of work and fortunately for Australian fans Sydney is one of them, along with New York, Los Angeles, London & Tokyo.

The line up includes Bowie band alumni Mike Garson, Earl Slick, Adrian Belew, Mark Plati, Gail Ann Dorsey, Sterling Campbell, and Holly Palmer plus Angelo Moore from Fishbone, Bernard Fowler from The Rolling Stones, Latin Grammy Award Winner Gaby Moreno and Scrote.
The massive ensemble consists of world class musicians from Los Angeles, New York City, and London that play with or have played with David Bowie, Tom Waits, Sting, Seal, Herbie Hancock, Jeff Beck, Talking Heads, De La Soul, Brian Eno, Iggy Pop, The Rolling Stones, NIN, Frank Zappa, Smashing Pumpkins, Bob Dylan, Duran Duran, Dr. Dre, Burt Bacharach, David Byrne, Lenny Kravitz, King Crismson, and countless others.
