David Bowie's wife suggests a tour might happen
Rumours of a David Bowie touring were always going to start once the legendary singer released his new record, The Next Day this week but Bowie's wife has helped fuel talk of live shows with her comments in a magazine recently.

"I discovered it during some research several years ago," explains Nigel Reeve, who oversees Bowie's back catalogue. "It was in an old tape vault on 1/4" tape with simply the words 'Radio Show' written on it. This is such a rare find. No one knew of its existence, apart from David and Ken. To play it for the first time was quite simply a jaw-dropping moment." [read more]
