The lady from another grinning soul...

It has just been announced that Macy Gray will be joining David as the support act for the US leg of his World Tour.

David has been a fan of Macy's since she burst onto the scene in the late '90s and raved about her here on BowieNet more than once. Macy's new album, The Trouble With Being Myself has been receiving wonderful reviews.

More details as we get them.

on August 04, 2003

Now that I've really got a Chance...

We are enormously proud to be able to announce an exclusive BowieNet warm-up show for the forthcoming Reality tour at The Chance Theater in Poughkeepsie, New York, on August 19th. This show has been arranged at the last-minute to polish up some of the new material and some other songs from the new setlist.

I asked David how he was looking forward to this performance:

"Get to try out the new things at the Chance gig. Won't be the longest show we've ever done but having such a lot of new things onstage will give it an edge.

Jonathan Ross Transcript And More

on August 02, 2003

I feed the pigeons in New York and I dig everything...

The much anticipated David Bowie phone-in to yesterday's Jonathan Ross Radio Show was a lot of fun and full of surprises.

David's section started at about 2hrs 30mins into the show, but earlier Jonathan discussed David Bowie with both Rolf Harris (Stylophones, what else?) and Siouxsie and Budgie; who told a typical 'My God, I'm breathing the same air as David Bowie' anecdote from when they supported him on tour in the '80's.

Official Lyrics To 'new Killer Star'

on August 01, 2003

I discovered a star...

After this mornings first airing of New Killer Star on the Jonathan Ross Show (of which much more later), a certain 'Sailor' has posted the complete lyrics on the BowieNet Message Boards. And here they are:

Don?t ever say I?m ready, I?m ready, I?m ready
