Milwaukee’s Abby Jeanne covered David Bowie’s “Rock N Roll Suicide” after the singer’s passing, posted to SoundCloud with the sentiment, “David Bowie died and this song has saved my life. It was a dream of mine to get a chance to work with him and i suppose this is the closest I will ever get.”
Well, she’s getting even closer – she has been invited to sing the song and a few more with members of David Bowie’s backing band for three Midwest dates on the “Celebrating David Bowie Tour” coming to the Pabst Theater in Milwaukee.
According to a recent update on the tour from Rolling Stone: “Anchoring the 2018 incarnation of the Celebrating David Bowie tour will be keyboardist Mike Garson (a member of the 1972/73 Spiders From Mars band who worked with Bowie until his final public performance in 2006), King Crimson’s Adrian Belew (who played on 1979’s Lodger and the 1990 Sound & Vision Tour) and guitarist Gerry Leonard (who appeared on 2002’s Heathen, 2003’s Reality and toured with Bowie in support of both albums). Let’s Dance/Serious Moonlight tour bassist Carmine Rojas, Fishbone’s Angelo Moore, Sting’s son Joe Sumner and Gaby Moreno will also perform.”
According to Abby Jeanne, she was invited based on her SoundCloud cover that was discovered by the right people.
You can see Abby Jeanne and the rest of the “Celebrating David Bowie Tour” musicians Thursday, February 22, 2018 at the Pabst Theater.
