Re: Is Bowie defying expectations with A Reality Tour? [re: eraserhead]  

Well I would say Bowie defied my expectations with this tour, because previously I had only seen him on the Area 2 Tour in Detroit, which was a 15 song set now that I look back on it! Didn't seem like it at the time, probably because I was in such awe of seeing him live. Also at that time his voice wasn't in the greatest condition in my opinion, so I was pleasantly surprised to hear him sing so well. In reviews I had heard them talk about how his voice was in top form, but I didn't really believe it. But damn, Bowie sounded great. I guess I was a little shocked when I saw how simple the stage set was, simply because the way I had heard it described made it sound so elaborate. But in my opinion, I like the simple set better. It was just enough to make the stage interesting and unique, and it also meant that Bowie wouldn't be relying on a bunch of smoke and mirrors to put on a good show. It was just enough to be theatrical. And plus one of the catwalks ended directly in front of me, so Bowie was right in front of me during "Bring me the Disco King", which is my favorite Reality song.

But I can see why other people would be less impressed with the show, perhaps the only reason it "defied expectations" for me was because of the 31 song set, but maybe if I had seen one of the 25 song shows I would feel the same way and think it was just a Greatest Hits show. The way I see it though is that if this is going to be Bowie's last major tour as everyone on this board is predicting, then of course it's going to be mostly popular songs. But there were also quite a few songs for us hardcore Bowie fans on there too, because half of the time people around me were sitting because they didn't know the songs. I mean he has to include quite a few Reality and Heathen songs, so that takes up a lot of the set list. And I'm sure a lot of people who go to the concerts don't know those songs at all. If I could have my own private Bowie show (hehe..), then of course I would make the song list consist of songs like Sweet Thing/Candidate, Station to Station, Lady Stardust songs like that, but I know that's never going to happen.

Anyways, I was very satisfied with the Reality Tour, and all I can say is be patient and perhaps Bowie will dust off some of the hardcore fan favorites and do a tour just for us! It could happen..

When you've seen beyond yourself - then you may find, peace of mind, is waiting there - And the time will come when you see we're all one, and life flows on within you and without you.
