David Bowie will be honored tomorrow (January 8) on what would’ve been his 74th birthday with a major livestream event whose already all-star lineup is expanding.

A number of new names will be performing or appearing during “A Bowie Celebration: Just For One Day!” including Ricky Gervais, Boy George and a supergroup dubbed Ground Control comprised of Slipknot/Stone Sour’s Corey Taylor, Foo Fighters’ Taylor Hawkins and Jane’s Addiction’s Dave Navarro and Chris Chaney.

Previously announced names performing or appearing during the livestream include Trent Reznor, Adam Lambert, Duran Duran, Billy Corgan, Perry Farrell, Lzzy Hale, Ian Hunter, Joe Elliott, Atticus Ross, Gavin Rossdale, Peter Frampton and Tony Visconti.

Per the tribute’s official website, the stream will also feature “… at least one Bowie alumni band member from every studio album (and more) from his 1969 self-titled album to ‘Blackstar,’ his final album.”

It also boasts, “This is NOT your standard generic Zoom based show. This is a full concert, beautiful, cinematic, and special with 3+ hours of music in celebration of Bowie’s life and legacy. The virtual music experience will be available to rewatch on demand for 24 hours.”

Virtual tickets for “A Bowie Celebration: Just For One Day!” begin at $25, with additional packages available featuring exclusive merch and other experiences. From every virtual ticket sold, $2 will be donated to Save the Children, an organization Bowie supported for many years and famously raised funds for during his 1997 50th birthday concert held at Madison Square Garden.
