David Bowie tribute show coming to the Keswick Theatre

Josh Middleton

Almost two years after David Bowie’s passing, several of his longtime collaborators are coming together for a grand-scale world tour that salutes the life and legacy of the Thin White Duke.

After six stops in Europe, Celebrating David Bowie comes to Philly’s Keswick Theatre on February 11—just over a month after the anniversary of Bowie’s death.

The show promises an evening of career-spanning Bowie covers—from Space Oddity to Blackstar—and was created with a single question in mind: ”What would a David Bowie concert look like if he were to put one on today?” If anyone would know, it would be the show’s creators and performers—folks who worked with the Starman throughout his career such as touring and recording keyboardist Mike Garson; guitarist and vocalist Adrian Belew, who traveled with Bowie on his Sound & Vision Tour; and guitarist Gerry Leonard from the A Reality Tour.

They’ll take center stage along with a rotating list of musicians and speical guests. A smaller version of the tour crossed the country last year and welcomed guest vocalists like Sting, Gary Oldman, Seal, the B-52’s Kate Pierson and Simon Le Bon. Wonder who they’d get in Philly? Patti LaBelle? Kurt Vile?

Philadelphia is the second stop on the North American leg of the tour. The show takes place on February 11 at 8pm. Tickets are available here.
