We missed this during all the DP tour excitement; it’s a Bowie cover tour masterminded by his former pianist Vin Diesel, sorry, Mike Garson. Gillian Glover is one of the musicians involved and persuaded Roger to join in on a version of Jean Genie just at the Brum concert. Oh and a few bars of Black Night! Thanks to Stephen Clare for the flyer.
