In a statement via Rolling Stone, Langdon spoke about Bowie, noting:
“David Bowie was a master. It’s impossible to put into words quite how much he taught me. It gives me a huge thrill to get to honour Mr. B. & to be a small part of this immense celebration of his life & work with these world-class musicians and everyone who, like me, feels his energy alive and vital around me now just as it was then & forever shall be.”

The tour will also feature bassist Angeline Saris, drummer Michael Urbano, saxophonist Ron Dziubla, and guitarist Scrote (Angelo Bundini) as the backing band. The artists put together the first edition of the Celebrating David Bowie tour in 2017. Scrote is producing the tour alongside Miles Copeland.
In a statement, Bundini told Rolling Stone:
“One of the things we’re doing differently on this tour is featuring a three-guitar attack. David has always been famous for his spectacular guitarists – the epic solos of Mick Ronson, the bluesy feel of Earl Slick, the funkiness of Carlos Alomar and Nile Rodgers, the bombast 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’re highlighting Adrian’s brilliance, Todd’s guitar wizardry, and whatever guitar mayhem I can muster in between.”
More about David Bowie
Bowie was an English singer-songwriter, actor, and a leading figure in the music industry. He is regarded as one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century. He was known for his reinvention and visual presentation, and his music and stagecraft had a significant impact on popular music.
He is famous for his glam rock era with his alter ego Ziggy Stardust. The character was backed by Bowie’s single Starman and album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, which brought him widespread popularity. Bowie also experimented with a sound that he characterised as “plastic soul.” He also dabbled in the electronic-inflected album Low in 1977 collaborating with Brian Eno. They went on to collaborate two more times in what came to be known as the Berlin Trilogy.
