LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – What are David Bowie’s tour dates 2013? There are none, his rep confirms to news, despite a report in the Mirror indicating otherwise today. The Mirror claims that a David Bowie 2014 Tour is in the works. But it’s just not true.
Album producer, Tony Visconti, told NME earlier this year that Bowie is not planning a 2013 or 2014 Tour. “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.”
The Mirror claimed that Bowie is in a bidding war between Live Nation for London’s Olympic Park and AEG for Hyde Park London. “The Mirror has learned that Live Nation has tabled a multi-million pound offer for the Ziggy Stardust icon to play the Olympic Park in East London next year. The company has close links with Bowie’s legendary tour agent John Giddings who runs music agency Solo”, claimed the Mirror. It added “AEG are also expected to lodge an offer shortly, possibly to play Hyde Park.”
It’s just not happening, however. A spokesperson for David Bowie issued a news statement ot NME this week “There are currently no plans for any live dates.” Bowie guitarist Earl Slick has confirmed the same.
