Carry the news, dudes: Celebrating David Bowie may just be the tour of the year.

Musical director Scote fielded an all-star team – guitarists and singers Todd Rundgren and Adrian Belew; keyboardist, acoustic guitarist and vocalist Royston Langdon from Spacehog; and Fishbone’s Angelo Moore, who served as the evening’s hype man in various costumes while singing and playing sax and theremin – to recreate Bowie’s songbook. And the results were nearly as unbelievable as Bowie himself.

The back bench – they were literally on a riser behind the stars and under a silhouette banner of Aladin Sane-era Bowie – of Ron Dziubla (sax, keys, guitar, percussion), drummer Michael Urbano and bassist Angeline Saris were key in making this work.

Over 135 minutes, the ensemble delivered 31 nearly career-spanning tracks from “Space Oddity” (Rundgren vocals) to “I’m Afraid of Americans” (Langdon), as Rundgren, Belew and Moore went on and off stage and the others played straight through without a break.

Celebrating Bowie may be a tribute, but the main five’s personalities were on display.

Scrote – who sung “Fashion” – was in charge in gold sequins. Langdon was a glam acolyte in white, channeling Ziggy-era Bowie with his mic stand and nailing cuts such as “Golden Years” and “Let’s Dance.”

A former member of Bowie’s band, also Frank Zappa’s unit, King Crimson and others, Belew ceded “Pretty Pink Rose” to Rundgren while nailing guitar passages in “”Heroes”,” “Station to Station” and others. He sung the opening “Sound and Vision,” cleverly segued “Boys Keep Swinging” out of “D.J.,” and he and Rundgren – whose deepening voice also served the songs incredibly well – sounded most like the man of the two-hour-15-minute gig.

Northeast Ohio is Rundgren country and the nearly sold-out, 1,500-seat Goodyear Theatre in Akron was ga-ga for him, whether he donned a yellow leisure suit, a silver space get-up or tattered denims. And when Rundgren held an insanely long note in “Life on Mars?” – he also sung “Young Americans,” “Changes” and “All the Young Dudes” – liftoff to the red planet seemed possible.

But Moore was the star, dressing like a clown for “Ashes to Ashes,” in prison stripes for “Station to Station” and sporting various other getups throughout the evening. He waded into to crowd to sing “Rebel Rebel” and dragged – literally dragged – a bunch of female concertgoers into stage to dance to “Suffragette City.”

Talk about a Celebration.
