will, in fact, be touring to support his new album The Next Day
, at least according to an out-of-context statement his wife Iman
made to a British magazine. Bowie and Iman live in New York City with their daughter Alexandria, and Iman seemed to imply that she’d stay home with the 12-year-old while Bowie tours to support his first album in a decade. “[W]e are stuck, we can’t travel. Our schedule is around her, so I don’t know. We’ll have to go visit him, but we won’t be on tour with him because she’s in school.”
She said the secret word! Still sounds like it could be a hypothetical scenario, but it’s more promising than statements made by Bowie’s longtime collaborator Tony Visconti earlier this year. In January, Visconti told NME that there would be no tour in support of the new album, or ever. “He’s fairly adamant he’s never gonna perform live again,” Visconti said. “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.”
