Carmine Rojas

It’s been four years since David Bowie’s passing, but his music continues to touch the lives of so many. Alumni from his band will once again pay tribute to the legendary singer with a new tour of “A Bowie Celebration.”

“A Bowie Celebration features key alumni musicians of David Bowie’s bands from across the decades,” a press release states. “Anchored by Mike Garson along with a revolving selection of additional performers which include Gerry Leonard, Carmine Rojas, Kevin Armstrong and Alan Childs. This tour will focus on David Bowie’s fifth album Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, and his eighth studio album Diamond Dogs – both ranked amongst the greatest albums of all time.”

Rojas toured the world with Bowie from 1983 to 1987 and played on hits like “Let’s Dance,” “China Girl,” and “Modern Love.” You can hear his playing with the Celebration band in this version of “Rebel Rebel” featuring Corey Glover on vocals:

The tour begins on March 3rd in California and will head north to cross Canada and then return to cover the East Coast top to bottom. The final date is scheduled for April 11th at the Amaturo in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
