"Hey Blammo you fool...wrong soundcheck...this shot is soooo last Tuesday!"

It's happening outside, The music is outside, It's happening, now...
If you don't want to know what songs David will be performing this morning for his contribution to NBC's Today TV Show 7th Annual Summer Concert Series, (that we first mentioned six weeks ago (04/27/02 SNIPPET: BOWIE TO PLAY NBC's TODAY SUMMER CONCERT)) then look away now.
David's performance will begin at approximately 8:30am local time, and he'll be playing at least three, if not all four of the following: 'Slow Burn', 'Cactus', 'Fame' and 'Let's Dance'. Eye and ear-witness reports right now tell us that David has already soundchecked these songs this morning, and that he also performed most of 'Rock 'n' Roll Suicide' during that soundcheck after somebody shouted it out as a request!
Apparently there was much merriment during 'Slow Burn' when Earl Slick allegedly fluffed a guitar part, which amused David to the point of not being able to sing, due to the fact that he was laughing so hard. He wore a long black coat and shades for the rehearsal, and managed to get back inside before the heavens opened. Our reporters at the scene (Hallo Susans and Simone) are now soaked to the skin!
We'll bring you a full report tomorrow, if not sooner, and we'll reward the person whose picture we use for the piece with a highly collectable 'Heathen'/'Slow Burn' package, that comprises the following European items:
4-track 'Heathen' promo in card sleeve
One-track 'Slow Burn' radio edit promo
5-track 'Slow Burn' commercial release
3-track 'Slow Burn' commercial release in card sleeve
