David Bowie's guitarist Gerry Leonard has revealed that the legend could tour off the back of his forthcoming new album.

"I would say that it's 50-50," he told. "A couple of times, when we played back one of the more kick-a-s 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."

The comments echo those of fellow Bowie guitarist Earl Slick, who also plays on forthcoming album "The Next Day". "It's kind of like doing the record. I wouldn't be surprised if he toured and I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't tour... I know I would like a tour to happen!" he said previously (via NME).

David Bowie is set to release a brand new track titled "The Stars (Are Out Tonight)" on February 26. The track will appear on "The Next Day", Bowie's first new album in 10 years which is set for release on March 11.

The full tracklisting for "The Next Day" is as follows:

01. The Next Day 02. Dirty Boys 03. The Stars (Are Out Tonight) 04. Love Is Lost 05. Where Are We Now? 06. Valentine's Day 07. If You Can See Me 08. I'd Rather Be High 09. Boss Of Me 10. Dancing Out In Space 11. How Does The Grass Grow 12. (You Will) Set The World On Fire 13. You Feel So Lonely You Could Die 14. Heat

    I would spend so much money to see Bowie live. He's the one artist I really want to see that I haven't.
    Well The Cars didn't tour that much and if he wants to tour I would be fine with it... It would be nice to see him live though.
