Boy George and Taylor Momsen join David Bowie tribute concert
Written by Mr Mayhem on 7th January 2021
Boy George, Taylor Momsen, and Gary Barlow are among the stars joining the line-up for the forthcoming A Bowie Celebration: Just For One Day! virtual concert in honour of the late David Bowie.
Comedian Ricky Gervais and Ground Control – a supergroup made up of Slipknot’s Corey Taylor, Foo Fighters’ Taylor Hawkins, and Jane’s Addiction’s Dave Navarro and Chris Chaney – also join a stellar bill of previously announced stars, including Adam Lambert, Gavin Rossdale, Duran Duran, Yungblud, Peter Frampton, and Macy Gray.
One fan tweeted, “Can’t wait to hear #BoyGeorge sing ‘Lady Grinning Soul’ for Bowie’s birthday on 8th January!” and the Culture Club star replied, “Oh, there’s more!!!! Still my 12 year old self! I bought (Bowie’s album) Aladdin Sane in 1973!”
The virtual get-together was organised by Bowie’s long-time keyboard player, Mike Garson, and will air on what would have been Bowie’s 74th birthday on 8 January. Garson will front the livestream’s house band, made up of musicians who played with the Modern Love hitmaker over the course of his career.
Tickets are on sale now and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Save the Children.
Bowie died at his home in New York City two days after his 69th birthday following a battle with liver cancer in 2016.
