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.
