DEF LEPPARD's JOE ELLIOTT At A BOWIE CELEBRATION January 2021 (Event Details Updated)

Def Leppard 2020. A Bowie Celebration

Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott will be performing at the A Bowie Celebration online concert for January 2021 with more acts now added.

The event titled Mike Garson's 'A Bowie Celebration' will take place online from 6pm PT (2am UK) on 8th January 2021.

The concert was announced in November with more details now published.

Bowie pianist Mike Garson is organising the event having originally been in charge of the original Celebrating David Bowie concert in London on 8th January 2017.

Joe appeared at that show which marked exactly one year since David Bowie's death and also took place on his birthday.

David passed away on 10th January 2016 after battling cancer.

Joe had also appeared at two more Celebrating David Bowie concerts in Los Angeles on 24th/25th January 2017.

Many of the same David Bowie band members are also taking part in this new event including Joe's friends Emm Gryner and Earl Slick.

Joe was listed among the guest performers who also include - Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails), Ian Astbury (The Cult), Billy Corgan (The Smashing Pumpkins), Gavin Rossdale (Bush) and Perry Farrell (Jane's Addiction).

More acts have now been confirmed including Ian Hunter, Duran Duran and Trent Reznor is joined by fellow Nine Inch Nails member Atticus Ross and his own wife Mariqueen Mandig Reznor.

Tickets can be purchased for the online event now which will be streamed online for 24 hours afterwards.

Next, our initial announcement included an impressive group of alumni and special guests vocalists joining us, but we were just getting started in letting you know about the group coming together who worked with David or were deeply influenced by him and his work.

Mike Garson - Official Website Quotes (November 2020)

I had been wondering in recent months what to do for David’s birthday. We were supposed to be on tour with A Bowie Celebration in January which is just not possible for now. Then it came to me after speaking with many friends who love David alumni from throughout David’s career as well as great singers connected in special ways with him.

Today, I’m announcing that on January 8 an enormous group of artists will come together for the weekend of the fifth anniversary of David’s passing and what would have been his birthday. We will reconnect, heal, and share David’s music which means so much to so many. We can’t wait to perform this setlist of some of his most memorable hits along with a collection of deep cut Bowie gems… and it would mean so much for you to join us in our Celebration! Tickets are on sale now at -

This concert will feature performances from Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails), William Corgan (The Smashing Pumpkins), Bowie’s good friend and Oscar-winning actor Gary Oldman, Gavin Rossdale (Bush), Perry Farrell (Jane’s Addiction), Joe Elliott (Def Leppard), Grammy-winning singer Macy Gray, Ian Astbury (The Cult), Lzzy Hale (Halestorm), Gail Ann Dorsey (David Bowie, Lenny Kravitz), Bernard Fowler (Rolling Stones), Corey Glover (Living Color), Tony-winning rocker Lena Hall, vocal phenom Judith Hill (Grammy winner for 20 Feet From Stardom), and many, many more friends still to be announced!
