So the David Bowie album announcement has you all excited. Hell, you may have even been prepping for a potential Bowie concert, practicing drawing that lightening bolt à la Aladdin Sane across your face with leftover Halloween facepaint. Well, don’t hold your breath. According to NME, Bowie’s producer Tony Visconti says David Bowie won’t be going on tour in support of this new record – or perhaps even ever again.
Said Visconti of Bowie not touring: “[David Bowie is] fairly adamant he’s never gonna perform live again… One of the guys would say, ‘Boy, how are we gonna do all this live?’ and David said, ‘We’re not’. He made a point of saying that all the time.”
If you missed his 2003-2004 Reality Tour, then I guess you’ve just missed seeing Bowie live altogether.
