Be Immortalised On Film With David Bowie

on August 20, 2003

I'll say "Don't ask me..."

I think the majority of you may have stumbled across this one on the new splash page already, but just in case, here it is for those of you that haven't:

Ever wanted to ask David Bowie a question and then get an answer in real time? No it's not a web chat, it's something much more than that, and in true Bowie style it's something that's never been done before.

As you all know, on September 8th David is playing an invite only live show in London that is being beamed out to cinemas the world over, so far so good, right?

More Pix And Another Review From The Chance

on August 20, 2003

"Well the bitter comes out better on a stolen guitar."

Calling Sister Midnight, You know I had a dream last night...

As promised in last night's news piece, here are some more pictures from David's triumphant BowieNet show at The Chance Theater in Poughkeepsie. I've used them to punctuate a review from Poughkeepsie Journal. Com.

All pictures were taken by our good friend Kevin Mazur over at WireImage.com, and apart from the shot from rehearsals above, all of these stunning shots were taken during the show. I've posted a couple more for BowieNet members on the MBs too.

on August 18, 2003

Although I wasn't there...

As promised by David on the MBs over the weekend, here's a short video-montage of a couple of songs from the current tour rehearsals. This is just a tiny taster of what the lucky BowieNetters attending tomorrow night's show at Ploughkeepsie will be getting... and what a delicious taste it is.

Without giving anything away, it's also great to see that Gail has finally persuaded David to perform the second of the two songs in this montage. But, if you need a hand with the words on this particular song David, you know who not to come to!

For those of you that haven't

One Last Chance For Chance Tickets

on August 18, 2003

Can't we give ourselves one more Chance...

We have literally just been told that BowieNet has been allocated another batch of tickets for the BowieNet warm-up show at The Chance Theater in Poughkeepsie, New York, tomorrow night.

The show had originally sold out moments after it went on sale a couple of weeks ago, (08/04/03 NEWS: BOWIENET WARM-UP SHOW AT THE CHANCE IN POUGHKEEPSIE) but now there's an extra chance for some of you that were unsuccessful the first time around, but that can still make it to the show in time tomorrow.

As we pointed out in that original story, this is in effect a
