Drawn From Life CD cover
Everything will be alright tonight...
No direct Bowie link to this one, but if you happen to be in the vicinity of the Coliseu in Oporto, Portugal, at 22.00 local time this very evening, you may want to catch Brian Eno in a rare live performance. Brian is joined on stage by J. Peter Schwalm, and the pair will be performing music from their recently released collaboration, 'Drawn From Life'. If the performance is anywhere near the quality of the music on the CD, tonight's audience is in for a beautiful time.
Those of you expecting to see the great man on Roxy Music's current re-union tour may have already worked out that he definitely won't be at tonight's Birmingham NEC show, nor any of the other shows on the tour for that matter. Eno parted company with Roxy Music almost thirty years ago.
However, four of the original line-up; Bryan Ferry, Phil Manzanera, Andy Mackay and Paul Thompson, have decided that they can spend at least the duration of this 2001 tour in each other's company, and they have dragged guitarist Chris Spedding along with them to join in the fun. You can still get tickets for some of the remaining UK shows here, and I believe tickets for July's North American jaunt may still be available here. See you in Manchester on Wednesday.
