a celebration of david bowie, or a david bowie celebration. sydney opera house, bowies backing musicians from all periods select five cities around the world and without any rehearsals offer a few lucky people the chance to hear them play to their comrade and leader one last time. 
he was there, you could feel it, we invoked his spirit, the packed audience on their feet for the whole three hours, dancing, crying, and yeah celebrating the last great icon. lot of joy in the house. a lot.
mike garson told us a story, he and david were in japan and met an old zen monk. the monk said that world religions were meaningless as the message had been lost through their corruption and now it was up to artists. mike garson said, we are here to heal and heal with you. celebrate david and  then they played an amazing gig, three hours. i danced sang along and watched, having somehow managed to buy the last seat left, right at the back, in the corner where i had plenty of room to enjoy, fashion, boys keep swinging, sorrow, aladdin sane, lady grinning soul, where are we now, fame, win, golden years, five years, changes, life on mars and space oddity, loving the alien, boys keep swinging, stay, wild is the wind, rebel, diamond dogs, heroes, suffragette city, under pressure, moonage daydream, sound and vision, life on mars, ziggy, starman, china girl, let's dance and the rest....

a celebration.
