Todd Rundgren and King Crimson’s Adrian Belew shared details of a Tribute to David Bowie tribute tour set to hit North America this fall.
The famous guitarist and ex-King Crimson Axman will be joined by Spacehog’s Royston Langdon, Fishbone’s Angelo Moore and Jeffrey Gaines on the 15-date tour to pay tribute to the late influential British musician.
Bass player Angeline Sarisdrummer Michel Urbansaxophonist Ron Dziublaand guitarist Scrote (Angelo Bundini), who composed the first Tribute to David Bowie tour in 2017, are part of the backing band for the tour. Scrote produced the tour alongside Miles Copeland.
Langdon said in a press release [via Rolling Stone]: “ david bowie was a master. It is impossible to put into words everything he taught me. It gives me a huge thrill to be honored Mr. B and to be a part of this huge celebration of his life and work with these world-class musicians and all who, like me, feel his living and vital energy around me now, as it was then and will be for still.
Scrote added, “One of the things we do differently on this tour is a three-guitar attack. David has always been famous for its spectacular guitarists – the epic solos of Mick Ronsonthe bluesy feel of Earl Slickthe funky of Carlos Alomar and Nil Rodgersthe bomb Reeves Gabrielsand the supernatural guitar of Adrian Belew who is still one of the most original guitarists working today.
“To explore all of these guitar sides of Bowie songs, we highlight at Adrian’s glow, Todd’s guitar magic, and all the guitar chaos I can muster in between.

Meanwhile, the director of the upcoming Bowie documentary Lunar Reverie said he worked so hard on the film that he suffered a heart attack.
Lead by Brett Morgan (Kurt Cobain: Heck Editing, Joan), the docufilm promises to take viewers on an “immersive” journey through “sublime, kaleidoscopic imagery, personal archival footage, never-before-seen performances” that are anchored by Bowie’s music and lyrics.
It is the first film to be supported by the David Bowie Estate, which granted Morning unprecedented access to its collection. Press materials indicate that the estate presented Morning with more than five million assets in 2017.
The director has now said his own life was “out of control” when he started work on the film in January of that year. “When I started working on this film, I suffered a severe heart attack. I lay flat for three minutes and was in a coma,” Morning said.
