David Bowie's wife suggests a tour might happen

David Bowie's wife suggests a tour might happen

by Kris De Souza, 13 March 2013

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.

Iman explained to Grazia that "We have a 12 year old in school, so we are stuck, we can't travel. Our schedule is around her, so I don't know. We'll have to go visit him, but we won't be on tour with him because she's in school."

Previously, Bowie's guitarist Gerry Leonard and his producer Tony Visconti have both played down talk of live shows with Leonard claiming chances were "50-50" while Visconti was quoted earlier in the year as saying, "He's fairly adamant he’s never gonna perform live again… One of the boys would say, 'Boy how are we gonna do all this live?' and David would say 'we’re not', he made a point of saying that all the time."

    "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]

    Hey friends, so it’s time for another Monday Mixtape here on The405! First off, since it’s the very first day of the summer month of June (finally), this filling mix is just the start of what’s to come; a taster you might say, or a warmer upper to the lazy summer day and animated summer night anthems that we are so eager to get our hands on. I’ve put in a few oldies from Zeppelin to Bowie, and a few goodies from Neon Indian to Peaches. There’s The Ghost Bees, whic... (continued) [read more]
