Tonight is the sixteenth studio album by English musician David Bowie, released on 29 September 1984 by EMI America Records. It followed his most commercially successful album Let's Dance. He described the album, released immediately after his previous album's tour wrapped up, as an effort to "keep my hand in, so to speak," and to retain the new audience that he had recently acquired.
David Bowie is the self-titled debut studio album by English musician David Bowie, released on 1 June 1967, on Deram Records. Its content bears little overt resemblance to the type of music that later made him famous, such as the folk rock of "Space Oddity" or the glam rock of The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars.
David Bowie only discovered his cancer was terminal three months before he died, according to a documentary marking the anniversary of the superstar’s death. The film, David Bowie: The Last Five Years – due to air on BBC2 on Saturday night, a day before what would have been the singer’s 70th birthday – reveals that Bowie discovered his treatment was to be stopped while he was filming the music video for his final single, Lazarus.
That night essentially marked the end of David Bowie as a public figure. He never toured again, never gave another in-depth interview. By the time he made his surprise re-emergence in 2013 with his first album in a decade, The Next Day, he had pulled off a feat that no other rock star has quite managed, regaining all of the heady mystique of his breakthrough years, and then some. A week before his death, just before Blackstar’s release, he FaceTimed Visconti and told him he wanted to make one more album, a follow-up to Blackstar. I was thrilled, Visconti says, and I thought, and he must have thought, that he’d have a few months, at least.
David Bowie and The Spiders kicked off a short UK tour at the end of 1972 with a triumphant homecoming show at the Rainbow Theatre, on December 24th. They were enjoying much greater chart recognition since previously being in the country and The Jean Genie had just entered the Top 20 on its way to in the UK single chart. and in a North London concert hall David Bowie was making it a night to remember. And not just for his fans. When tickets for his Christmas Eve show at the Rainbow Theatre were put on sale, David made a public appeal for concertgoers to bring toys with them as a charity donation.
List of all David Bowie tour dates and concert history (1966 – 2017). But the night which followed that endless day changed my life. It was May 31, 1973 and the biggest sensation in pop since The Beatles was about to be beamed down into my home town. David Bowie and The Spiders From Mars brought the Aladdin Sane tour to the stage of King George’s Hall in previously grey, depressing, drab, dismal, monochrome cotton town Blackburn. It actually might have been quite a bright, sunny day to be honest. But the only time I’d ever sat in the stalls at King George’s Hall before that night was at tedious, interminable school speech nights, a mandatory but utterly dreaded annual event. I was only allowed to go to the Bowie gig because an adult was taking me. Fortunately it wasn’t my dad, who might have been utterly outraged by the spectacle.
David Bowie depicted an alien in the 1976 film "The Man Who Fell To Earth". Bowie made more influential albums than "The Next Day," but never, I'd surmise, did he produce one more heartfelt. Nor is it accidental that he chose to recycle the cover of an album from his "Berlin period. Berlin was the place the pop star who posed as Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane, the Thin White Duke, etc. visited and revisited whenever he wanted to get real: The place where the alien fell to earth. Berlin's adoptive son.
Amusingly, not only was I to cover Velvet’s song before anyone else in the world, I actually did it before the album came out. Now that’s the essence of Mod. TUPELO BLUES. These Portraits Capture David Bowie at the Height of His 1970s Glory.
