Culture Club frontman Boy George, Pretty Reckless bandleader Taylor Momsen, Award-winning comedian and After Life star Ricky Gervais, and Ground Control supergroup with Dave Navarro (Jane’s Addiction), Corey Taylor (Slipknot, Stone Sour), Taylor Hawkins (Foo Fighters), and Chris Chaney (Jane’s Addiction) and six-time Ivor Novello Award winner Gary Barlow (Take That) will take the virtual stage for “A Bowie Celebration: Just For One Day!”, the global streaming concert bringing together a dazzling array of artists who worked with David Bowie or who were inspired and influenced by his work — for a celebration of what would have been his 74th birthday and the weekend of the fifth anniversary of his passing. Presented by Mike Garson, David Bowie’s longest-standing band member, the concert will stream on January 8 beginning at 6pm PT.
The all-star show will also feature previously announced artists including the Grammy award-winning British music icons Duran Duran, Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails), William Corgan (The Smashing Pumpkins), UK chart topping YUNGBLUD, Grammy Award-winning guitar legend Peter Frampton, three-time Grammy nominee Andra Day, vocal sensation Adam Lambert, Oscar-winning actor Gary Oldman, Gavin Rossdale (Bush), Joe Elliott (Def Leppard), Perry Farrell (Jane’s Addiction), Kind Heaven Orchestra vocalist Etty Lau Farrell, Grammy-winning singer Macy Gray, Ian Astbury (The Cult), Lzzy Hale (Halestorm), actor/musician Michael C.

A Bowie Celebration is proud to announce they will donate $2 per ticket purchase to the Save the Children organization, a charity that was deeply important to Bowie. In 1997, the organization was the beneficiary of funds raised from Bowie’s sold-out 50th Birthday Concert held in Madison Square Garden and featuring many of the artists who are coming together for this event to honor a man who was their band member, friend, and inspiration.
Starting at 6 pm PT, the show will continue to play on loop and will remain available for ticket holders around the globe to enjoy for 24 hours after its initial stream. With over three hours of music, the show will offer fans the opportunity to enjoy, reminisce and experience their favorite Bowie songs as never before — performed by David’s friends, bandmates, and those with whom he was the soundtrack to their lives.
