So I've been writing just for you...
Under a headline (nodding to Ian Hunter) of "DIARY OF A ROCK 'N' ROLL STAR", the double-page spread covers the shows from the start of the tour in Copenhagen on October 7th, up to the Berlin show on November 3rd. The piece is peppered with exclusive pix, including a shot of David and Gail backstage with that raven in Cologne.
Here's the entry regarding the first show in Copenhagen.
OCTOBER 7th, COPENHAGEN
Tonight was the kick off of the David Bowie "Reality Tour!" Yeah! We've spent so many weeks and months in rehearsals and doing television appearances that everyone was bursting to finally play in front of an audience! It made for a very satisfying show. David designed an incredible stage set that none of us had seen until we arrived at production rehearsals in Brussels last week.
The set involves among other things, tiny staircases with no railings, and narrow, elevated ramps that frame the stage on either side and across the back. To me it's pretty frightening to walk around up there - especially in flashing lights! David dances and struts around on those platforms like he's taking a stroll in the park! What a pro!
In our dress rehearsals, he choreographed an opening entrance that involves me walking across one of the raised platforms, but I daren't tell him I get a little vertigo up there. I made it tonight without fainting. I'll be brave and get used to it. It's a challenge. Besides, it's exciting to make an entrance. Where else would I be having this much fun?
