Re: Is Bowie defying expectations with A Reality T
In reply to:
performance is an artform too, you know. and being boring is not good art
i can understand a lack of variety if the production is more theatrical, as with diamond dogs, glass spider, etc. but not this time around, i'm afraid
What part of the setlist is not good variety? I think the span of albums covered and songs is great for a world tour. Jeez, he could be playing the ChangesOneBowie album from start to end inbetween the whole Reality album, but he's not.
Bowie himself said he KNOWS the hardcore fans (of which there actually are very few of us really, compared to everyone who will see him this tour) don't want to hear China Girl again. And then he said Stuff them, I LOVE playing China Girl, it's my song and I'll play it until I get sick of it.
Anyways, Dice, which show did you attend to conclude that this tour is so boring?
