Some of David Bowie‘s former musical cohorts will pay tribute to him during a concert marking the first anniversary of chameleon-like star’s death.

A cast led by Adrian Belew and Earl Slick will take the stage on Jan. 10 – the day Bowie died in 2016, just after releasing Blackstar and celebrating his 69th birthday – for an event to be held at Terminal 5th in New York City. Also featured are Mike Garson, Gail Ann Dorsey, Sterling Campbell and others.

“Individually, these former Bowie band members performed, wrote and recorded together with David through several decades,” a news release says, “including the 1973’s Ziggy Stardust tour, the Diamond Dogs tour, Isolar II (Heroes) tour, to the hugely successful Serious Moonlight tour, the Sound + Vision greatest hits tour to Glastonbury 2000, Heathen, his final A Reality Tour – and many of them appeared on Bowie’s triumphant comeback album, The Next Day.” They’re promising “a very special David Bowie concert with Bowie people playing Bowie music Bowie style.”

The Terminal 5 website’s event description says proceeds will “aid local charities.” Tickets go on sale Friday (Dec. 9).

Actor Gary Oldman will also lead a tribute event to be held on Jan. 8 – on what would have been Bowie’s 70th birthday – at the Brixton Academy in London. Garson, Slick, Belew and Campbell are appearing there as well, along with Holly Palmer, Catherine Russell, ensembles from Los Angeles and New York, and other special guests. That concert will support the Children & the Arts charity.
