The organizers behind A Bowie Celebration: The David Bowie Alumni Tour featuring Mike Garson and fellow key alumni musicians from David Bowie's bands from across the decades have just announced a 32-date North American winter tour for 2019.

The trek includes a Feb. 24 date at the Agora Theatre.



In addition to Garson, the group includes Earl Slick, Gerry Leonard, Carmine Rojas, Bernard Fowler, Corey Glover and Lee John. The ensemble will play a mix of Bowie's hits and deep-cuts.

Garson, the longest-standing member of Bowie's bands, performed with the Thin White Duke at his first and last concerts in the United States as well as 1,000 concerts around the globe. Slick worked on landmark Bowie albums such as Diamond Dogs, Young Americans and Reality; Bowie guitarist and band leader Gerry Leonard accompanied Bowie on his A Reality Tour; and bassist Carmine Rojas was on the Let's Dance/Serious Moonlight Tour.
