EDITORS’ NOTES

David Bowie was one of rock music’s most versatile performers, reinventing himself every few years for the sake of personal and spiritual renewal. His storied career gave him an impeccable catalogue to choose from. His expert sidemen —guitarist Earl Slick, bassist Gail Ann Dorsey—mean these tunes are delivered at maximum force. They come from his 2003-2004 World Tour, during which he suffered a heart attack in Germany that has slowed his career considerably and include ferocious renditions of old-school classics such as “Rebel, Rebel”, “Fame”, “All The Young Dudes” (the Mott the Hoople hit he wrote) and “Ashes to Ashes”, alongside tracks from his then-current album Reality that show a rejuvenated Bowie with updated glam rockers like “New Killer Star”, “Reality” and the slow dance of “Bring Me the Disco King”. It’s a big sound with Bowie in great voice. The stage gives him an energy he puts to good use as he cruises through his career, stopping at such highlights as “Sister Midnight”, “China Girl”, “Under Pressure” and “The Man Who Sold the World” with a strong urge to fight still in his star-dazzled delivery.

About David Bowie

Everyone has a David Bowie that they fell in love with first—the otherworldly outsider Ziggy Stardust, the electronic adventurer, the wild-eyed glam pioneer, the enigmatic storyteller. But it was Bowie's ability to reinvent himself so vividly that captivated us again and again. Driven by boundless imagination, David Bowie was a multifaceted music icon, a social provocateur, a force in fashion, and a gifted actor whose unique personas and perspectives traveled with him through the decades. From the moment his homesick astronaut captured the spotlight in the late ‘60s to his exploratory, jazz-influenced Blackstar almost 50 years later, he excelled and innovated with turns in pop, glam, punk, soul, hard rock, and electronic music. And even though Bowie released vital albums throughout his life—and will forever embody the most artful edge of rock ’n’ roll—he was more than just the music he made. Bowie's fearlessness inspired us to celebrate the complexity and beauty of being completely ourselves.
