Tony Visconti now saying David Bowie might play “the odd show in New York or London if he feels like it”
Last week, David Bowie‘s longtime collaborator/producer Tony Visconti said Bowie is “fairly adamant he’s never gonna perform live again.” However in Visconti’s new interview with Rolling Stone, things look slightly more positive:
The big question: Do you think Bowie will tour?
He says that he will only play if he feels like it, but no tour. Like, if [he] wanted to do the odd show in New York or, I don’t know, London, he would if he felt like it. And he made that very clear to the label that he wasn’t going to tour or do any kind of ridiculously long album promotion. It was his idea to just drop it at midnight on his birthday and just let things avalanche.
Do you really think it’s possible he’d do just one show?
It’s possible, if he feels like it. I don’t know. I spoke to him two days ago and he said, “I’m really adamant I’m not gonna do a tour.” And he said, “If I might, I might do one show.” But who knows when.
Here’s to hoping he feels like it!
Bowie’s first album in ten years, The Next Day, comes out this March. If you’re wondering (we were), Rolling Stone is saying that really is the album cover. The video for the single, “Where Are We Now?,” is below.
