Bowie 'Will Never Play Live Again'
With the surprise release of a new David Bowie single earlier this month, fans have been salivating at the prospect of seeing the artist formerly known as Ziggy Stardust hitting the live circuit again. However, as NME reports, producer Tony Visconti has claimed that they shouldn't be getting their hopes up: "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." Speaking to Hollywood Reporter, Visconti has also noted the level of secrecy that was kept around the Bowie record, stating that he didn't even tell his children that he was working on it: "We had to sign non-disclosure agreements but that wasn't necessary. We love David so much. Everyone in the project, except for a few, were old-timers; people who'd made albums or toured with him. "We didn't tweet it, put it on Facebook or even tell our best friend. That was the hardest part: people close to me wanted to know what I was working on and I couldn't tell them. "I knew if I told one of them, somebody would leak it and it would be all over the world in a day. I didn't even tell my children what I was doing." Bowie also decided to launch the single on his 66th birthday several months ago, according to Visconti: "The countdown was unbearable. When it was finally released I stared at my computer for 15 minutes until the first person realised it was simply dropped in iTunes."
