Just for One Day was hosted by longtime Bowie pianist Mike Garson, and the livestream will be anchored by a group of star musicians who have performed with Bowie during his career. Three other alumni have been added to the lineup: Peter Frampton, a childhood friend of Bowie, who played on Never disappointed me and the subsequent Glass Spider Tour; Young Americans saxophonist David Sanborn; and Yes keyboardist Rick Wakeman, who played on Space Oddity, Hunky Dory, and Ziggy Stardust.
Tickets for the Just for One Day livestream are on sale now, and $2 from each ticket will be donated to save the children, an organization supported by Bowie through funds raised at his famous 1997 50th anniversary concert at Madison Square Garden. The show will debut on January 8 at 6 p.m. PT / 9 p.m. ET, and ticket holders will be able to watch the show for 24 hours after its initial airing.
