Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott performed two songs at the Celebrating David Bowie concert in London, England on this day in 2017.

The 'Celebrating David Bowie' concert took place on 8th January 2017 at the O2 Academy Brixton in London, England.

The first in a series of concerts by David Bowie's most recent backing musicians performing with special guest singers.

The performers were only revealed during the concert and Joe was one of them.

Joe sang two during songs - 'All The Young Dudes' and 'Suffragette City' with musicians including Gail Ann Dorsey, Mark Plati and Mike Garson.

Lisa Ronson (Mick Ronson's daughter) sang backing vocals during 'ATYD' with the London Community Gospel Choir also taking part in the performance. The first time Joe had performed with a choir.

Guitarist Earl Slick is shown with Joe in the above photo during the second song. Joe sang guest vocals on his 'Zig Zag' solo album in the early 2000s.

They included Gail Ann Dorsey, Mark Plati, Mike Garson, Gerry Leonard, Earl Slick, Adrian Belew, Holly Palmer and Zachary Alford.

Other extended band members included Blair Sinta/Zac Rae (both ex-Alanis Morissette), Alex Painter, Eric Gorfain, Scrote, Jeremy Little, Jordan Katz and Ron Dziubla.

View some photos from the show along with fan video footage and the complete setlist.

Joe may reprise his appearance in early 2018 as the same band are going on a world tour including dates in London (12th Jan) and Dublin (15th Jan).
