We decided on doing Ziggy Stardust a year ago. And when it went up on sale we were overjoyed at how well it sold out of the gate. Then he passed. And in the midst of the sadness, this show became something more: part celebration / part eulogy.

I pretty much have all of David Bowie’s recorded work. I’ve always been a fan. I even played guitar in Bowie cover band back in 1982. So when he released his last album posthumously, along with that video with the bandages on his eyes - it freaked me out. I mean it really rattled me.

So many of us have been affected by cancer. When it eats an artist that we’ve lived our entire life alongside, it can feel the same as when a family member battles. The sadness of it all knows no boundaries. So tying tonight’s performance in to CAL’s work with the Canadian Cancer Society feels like the right thing to do. And it helps to put a period on a beautiful sentence.
