Hard Rock Cafe Philadelphia will host a tribute March 4 to David Bowie, with part of the proceeds benefiting cancer research. During the event, there will be musical performances, where artists will pay tribute to Bowie with live renditions of some of his most iconic tracks, and a series of guest speakers sharing stories about the singer.
Bill Nicoletti, the producer of a new documentary on Philly's Sigma Sound Studios, will be in attendance, along with two engineers who worked on the 1975 album "Young Americans" that Bowie recorded in Philly.
There will also be two super fans at the event: Pat Bandan and Marla Kanevsky.
Both are "Sigma Kids," who got to know Bowie when he recorded "Young Americans." They gathered outside Sigma Sound Studios while he was recording and were invited in on the last day so they could listen to a preview of rough cuts of the songs.
All of the guest speakers will share one-of-a-kind stories about Bowie.
Hard Rock Cafe's doors will open at 8 p.m. for the 8:30 show. The event is open to all ages.
