If you think that because Iman is in The Fashion Show on Bravo now David Bowie is gonna come out and play again, I’m afraid I got a bit of bad news for you… He might not be coming out to play again… EVER!

Andy Greene of Rolling Stone Magazine says it has been four years since Bowie last performed in public. For that occasion he did a three-song set at the BlackBall charity concert at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City. Also, Bowie’s 2004 Reality tour was cut short when he suffered a heart attack, and last year Bowie told the New York Times he had no plans to return to the stage.

We’ve heard that before, the famous “I’m retiring,” and then they come back for a tour, sell out, make millions and retire over and over, and over again… Bowie himself did it in 1973! But Greene adds: “The fact he’s said virtually nothing this time around indicates he may well be done forever… though in a few weeks the annual ‘Bowie’s headlining Coachella!!’ rumors should once again surface.”

What do you think? Would you care for another Bowie album or tour?

In the meantime, and while you wait, and wait, and wait… Here’s David Bowie’s Space Oddity…

  1. Feyda Weye says:

    I’d love another CD from Bowie, but not necessarily a tour. That wears a person out, and if he’s had a heart attack, then no, I want him to be healthy enough to enjoy the rest of his life. You have to remember he started singing at like…16 years old. That’s nearly half a decade he’s performed. Though I admit if he was cloned and could transfer his whole memories into a younger body, I’d love to hear him on tour again. But today’s world is not what it was back when he started. Things just aren’t the same now and he’s older, more mature. I don’t much care for today’s music like I enjoy his music. His music told a story. There’s not a lot of substance in what I hear today. I mean, for Goodness sake’s…”I shake my hair back and forth, I shake my hair back and forth, I shake my hair back and forth”… Give me a break! Nothing like “The Man Who Sold the World” or “Little Boy Blue” or “Station to Station” or “Heroes”. The man is a ground breaker, world shaker. He’s made the grade and set the curve in MY opinion.
