Join the world renowned pianist player, Mike Garson, along with a host of other David Bowie musical alumni, as he brings his show, A Bowie Celebration, to Dublin.
Garson has worked mostly in jazz and experimental music, but is most famous for his time collaborating with Bowie in the 1970s as the touring keyboardist during the Ziggy Stardust era, and for providing his distinctive piano playing all throughout the Aladdin Sane album. He has also work with the likes of Nine Inch Nails and Smashing Pumpkins.
A host of performers will join Garson for this show, including Earl Slick (who played guitar with Bowie across four decades), Corey Glover of Living Colour, bassist Carmine Rojas (who toured with Bowie in the 1980s), and Irish guitarist Gerry Leonard who played on Bowie's recent albums, alongside many others, in what Garson considers to be Bowie's dream line-up.
In the week of the anniversary of his death, this incredible collection of performers will be playing the music of the Thin White Duke, whose art – and death – touched so many, as well as sharing their stories of their times with the man himself.
