Could David Bowie Go Out On Tour?

"It’s 50-50..."
David Bowie

Rumours persist that David Bowie could be set to go out on tour.

David Bowie's enigmatic status finally snapped earlier this year. Stepping back into the public gaze, the legendary songwriter unveiled plans for new album 'The Next Day'. Sadly, producer Tony Visconti seemed to rule out any plans to hit the road.

Speaking about 'The Next Day', Visconti stated that Bowie is “fairly adamant he’s never gonna perform live again”. Since then, though, rumours of potential live activity have persisted.

Now long time Bowie guitarist Gerry Leonard has broken his silence, believing that a tour remains in the balance. “I would say that it’s 50-50" he told Rolling Stone. "A couple of times, when we played back one of the more kick-ass tunes from the new record, he’d be like, ‘This would be great live!’ Of course, everyone was like, ‘What? Did he just say that?’ But other times he’d just roll his eyes if someone brought up playing live.”

Continuing, the guitarist explained that Bowie could go back on the road - if he doesn't decide to make another album first. “If he gets the bug in him to do it, it’ll happen. His voice is sounding great and he’s looking great, too. He could totally do it. You never know with David, though. I feel he might want to make another record before he plays shows. He’s being really prolific right now.”

Curious. Here's 'Where Are We Now?'
