David Bowie dies at 69, Esperanza Spalding maps spring run
Just two days after the release of his 25th studio album "Blackstar," David Bowie died at his New York home after an 18-month battle with cancer.
The iconic rocker unveiled the new effort Jan. 8 -- his 69th birthday. He is survived by his wife, Iman, and two children, Duncan and Alexandra.
Grammy winner Esperanza Spalding has plotted an East Coast tour in support of her forthcoming album, "Emily's D+Evolution." The month-long road trip kicks off April 9 in Northampton, MA, and visits 11 major markets before wrapping up April 24 in Miami, FL.
Produced by Spalding and David Bowie producer Tony Visconti, "Emily's D+Evolution" will hit retailers in March.
