Don’t get your hopes up for David Bowie to do any live touring behind his forthcoming album.
The Life on Mars hitmaker – who blasted back onto the radar with his comeback single Where Are We Now? earlier this week – is highly unlikely to do any more live shows, according to his longtime producer.
Bowie’s producer Tony Visconti has opened up to NME for an extensive interview – published in the UK magazine next week – detailing the process of making the album and their plans to promote it.
Visconti said there were several questions in the studio of how the band would perform the album live, which were all immediately shut down by Bowie.
“He’s 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.”
Earlier this week, Bowie’s guitarist Earl Slick said that he was extremely keen to get the band together for a small tour – if he can squeeze the legendary rocker’s arm.
David Bowie will release his new album The Next Day on March 8 in Australia – three days before the rest of the world. Check out the video for his comeback single Where Are We Now? below:
