The David Bowie Alumni Tour, “A Bowie Celebration,” rolls into Reno Sept. 29 at the Grande Exposition Hall located inside the Silver Legacy Hotel and Casino.

The tour features musicians from the late artist’s bands from across the decades, anchored by keyboardist and band leader Mike Garson. The critically-acclaimed show is set to be an unforgettable evening of Bowie songs performed by world class vocalists and an ever-rotating mix of hits and deep cuts.

Garson is the longest standing member of Bowie’s bands and had performed in the legend’s first and last tours in the U.S. He’s joined by guitarist Earl Slick, bassist Carmine Rojas, and guitarist Mark Platin. Between these legends they have over 30 years of experience recording, writing, and playing live with Bowie.

John Tuckness has been photographing rock concerts in the Reno/Sparks/Tahoe area and as far as Northern California since 2004. He tries to attend as many shows as he can. John knew he wanted to be a concert photographer when he went to his first concert, Kiss and Montrose way back in 1976. He saw three guys shooting the show and thought to himself, "that's what I want to do." After many years of undercover work (sneaking his camera into venues), he finally got noticed and started getting photo passes through PR people and the bands. John has had many of his photos published in newspapers, websites and band autobiographies.
