TV, still undecided, at the Virgin Megastore just the other day.
Hey, that's far out so you heard him 2!
You may be wondering why, when I used the above picture of Tony Visconti listening to 'Heathen' a couple of days ago, I claimed it was at Tower Records in Union Square? Anyone worth their salt knows full well it was at the Virgin Megastore. Even I know that, and I'm a European! Admittedly I only know because several thousand of you e-mailed me with news of my blunder, but now I know there ain't no Tower in Union Square.
I do apologise for any distress my locational error may have caused, but needless to say, I received the information from a 'higher source'...ie, David bloody Bowie! Still, only a fool would rely on a Rock God for accurate geographical information, and that is why the details below were checked by a panel of non-celebrities.
This is the latest bunch of 'Heathen' related events, starting as early as tomorrow!

A local fan club is holding a 'Heathen' listening event at the Fnac store in Milan, via torino June 1st from 16.30 pm until 20.00 pm.
