Bowie's Producer Says A Tour Is Unlikely
Tony Visconti, the producer behind David Bowie's comeback release Where Are We Now?, says the Thin White Duke is unlikely to hit the road behind the LP. Rumors of a possible tour swirled with news of its impending release, but Visconti says fans shouldn't hold their breath.
"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," Visconti tells NME.com.
Visconti added that it was a challenge for everyone involved to stay mum about the project until it was announced:
"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."
