Never miss another 'Mike Garson' show
David Bowie's 'Aladdin Sane' : Mike Garson
This event takes place at O2 Academy Sheffield, which has achieved Bronze Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
From Bach to Bowie, east coast to west coast, piano keyboards to computer keyboards, Mike Garson has worked to make the world a more creative, compassionate and compelling place. He remains a man of many talents and limitless inspiration. No artistic medium is off-limits to this avant-garde individual to whom the word 'no' is quickly transformed into the word 'now'.
Best known for his impressive skills as a pianist, he is a respected composer and an evolving computer artist. Embracing the idea of the 'Renaissance Man', Mike continually experiments with new ways through which he can communicate his humanistic ideals and hopes for the world in which he lives.
Mike is perhaps best known for his relationship with David Bowie, which began in late 1971. He made his mark on numerous Bowie albums and has travelled thousands of miles on Bowie tours, including his 2003-04 'A Reality Tour', Bowie's first world tour in 20 years. In November 2006, Mike accompanied Bowie and Alicia Keys during a unique performance of 'Changes' at an AIDS benefit in New York City which ended up being Bowie's final public U.S. performance.
Mike's solid reputation for creativity and quality has motivated many other musicians to invite him to record on their albums, including Billy Corgan, Smashing Pumpkins, No Doubt, and Trent Reznor, whom Mike first met during David Bowie's 1996 'Outside' tour. Trent featured Mike on several tracks of Nine Inch Nails' 'The Fragile' album. Mike can also be heard on Seal's 'Human Being' as well as a bonus track at the end of No Doubt's 'Return of Saturn' album.
Since 1982, Mike has been a member of Free Flight, a jazz and classical ensemble featuring renowned flutist Jim Walker. In addition to serving as the group's pianist, Mike composed most of their music. Free Flight appeared four times on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson.
