Todd Rundgren, King Crimson’s Adrian Belew And More Unite For David Bowie Tribute Tour

A David Bowie tribute group consisting of artists including Todd Rundgren and King Crimson‘s Adrian Belew is heading out on tour in the U.S.

The tour is seeing a bit of an all-star band come together to celebrate the catalogue of Bowie on stages throughout North America, weeks after the highly-anticipated Moonage Daydream documentary is released.

The group, featuring Spacehog’s Royston Langdong, Fishbone’s Angelo Moore and Jeffrey Gaines, is also coming together under the vision of guitarist, Scrote, who put together the initial Celebrating David Bowie tour in 2017.

“One of the things we’re doing differently on this tour is featuring a three-guitar attack,” Scrote mentioned in a piece with Rolling Stone.

“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.”

Says Royston Langdon of the event, “It’s impossible to put into words quite how much he taught me. It gives me a huge thrill to get to honour Mr. B & to be a small part of this immense celebration of his life & work with these world-class musicians and everyone, who like me feels his energy alive and vital around me now just as it was then & forever shall be.”
