Trent Reznor, Billy Corgan and more to play David Bowie tribute livestream

'A Bowie Celebration: Just for one day!' will stream next January to mark the legend's 74th birthday

Trent Reznor, Billy Corgan and more are set to mark David Bowie‘s 74th birthday in a special tribute livestream in January.

Bowie, who died just three days after his birthday in 2016, would have turned 74 on January 8 next year.

‘A Bowie Celebration: Just for one day!’ has been organised by long-time Bowie pianist Mike Garson, and is set to see Bowie’s collaborators from across his career cover and interpret his songs.

Garson said of the event: “What we’re planning is an amazing show with the most talented musicians from every period of David’s career, as well as phenomenal artists from many different genres.

“We’ll hear different interpretations of David’s songs; some with totally new arrangements that have never been heard before.”

Also set to star in the livestream are Gary Oldman, Macy Gray, Perry Farrell and more, including Bowie’s producer Tony Visconti, and his final touring band, which features Gail Ann Dorsey, Garson and others.

Tickets for the show are available now for $20 (£15).
