David Bowie will be honored at AFAS Live on November 7. Some of Bowie's original band members are on stage with Dutch tribute band Starman.
The organizer announced the offer on Wednesday. The British artist died on exactly that day, eight years ago.
One of the original band members is Carmine Rojas, a guitarist who toured several world tours with Bowie. Rojas has played on several albums. His bass guitar can be heard in songs like Let's dance, china girl, Modern love in Blue jeans. Singer Ava Cherry is also coming to the Netherlands. She sang on the album Golden years. Cherry also had a love affair with Bowie in the past.
The nine-member Dutch band Starman is known for its participation in the SBS program Tribute: Battle of the Gangs. Frontman Rias looks cool and a bit like Bowie. According to the organization, this partly led to members of the British pop legend's former band agreeing to participate in the concert in Amsterdam.
Ticket sales began on Wednesday.
