“David Bowie was a master,” Langdon said in a statement. “It’s impossible to put into words everything he taught me.

The backing band will include bassist Angeline Saris, drummer Michael Urbano and guitarist Scrote (Angelo Bundini), who organized the first Celebrating David Bowie tour in 2017 and produced this one alongside Miles Copeland.

Rolling stone. “David has always been famous for his guitar spectaculars – the epic solos of Mick Ronson, the bluesy feel of Earl Slick, the funky of Carlos Alomar and Nile Rodgers, the brilliance 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 highlight Adrian’s genius, Todd’s guitar magic and anything I can find in between.
The tour will roll across America just weeks after Bret Morgen’s long-awaited documentary Lunar Reverie arrives in theaters. It mixes together footage from across Bowie’s career, much of it never before seen by the public. Morgen has worked there throughout the pandemic.

It comes back to every phase, from Ziggy to Blackstar. I didn’t see anyone for the first few months of the pandemic, but I saw David’s face every day when I woke up to go to work. It was almost like it was meant to be a pandemic piece of art.
