Well There Go All Those "Will Bowie Play Coachella?" Rumors

Posted by on Fri, Jan 11, 2013 at 4:09 PM

Earlier this week David Bowie celebrated his 66th birthday by releasing a new song and announcing a new record. The Next Day will be out in March and of course people (myself included) started to speculate on whether Mr. Bowie would make an appearance at Coachella or any other big summer festivals.

Producer Tony Visconti crushes those dreams, though, saying Bowie made it clear he had no intention of performing live anytime soon. NME says:

In an in-depth interview with the producer in next week's magazine, which will hit newsstands on Wednesday (January 19) and will also be available digitally, Visconti reveals all the inside information on Bowie's two-year long recording process for the album – including details of all the key tracks. In it, Visconti reveals that the singer is insistent there won't be any future live shows.

When asked if there was any talk in the studio with the band of how the tracks would sound live, Visconti replied: "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."

Sad face.

If we're dreaming, might as well throw Eno & Fripp onto that bill too!
