David Bowie won’t tour again, says promoter
Veteran English singer David Bowie (right) is done with touring, says his promoter John Giddings. The 68-year-old multi-instrumentalist has been away from the limelight since he faced a medical emergency in 2004, said The Hollywood reporter.
Giddings, who has a long association with Bowie, announced the news at the inaugural International Festival Forum (IFF). “David is one of the best artists I’ve worked with. But every time I see him now, before I even speak to him, he goes, ‘I’m not touring’ and I say, I’m not asking. He’s decided to retire and like Phil Collins, you can’t demand these people go out there again and again and again. I’m really pleased and proud that the last show he ever did in the UK was the 2004 Isle Of Wight Festival,” the British promoter said. Bowie’s last album, The Next Day in 2013, was a hit. Last year marked the 50th anniversary of his debut single Liza Jane.
