Ant, that pic is from Zoolander (1999).
I love that movie, but still believe Bowie is the lowpoint of the movie . He overacts terribly, and while I still am embarrassed to comment too much on his hair, I just can't get my head around that 'do'. It was atrocious and I was so relieved when it went. He didn't seem like "David Bowie" to me, looking like that
As for aging on the Reality tour, he looked truly incredible in Melbourne (remember, I saw him at extremely close quarters from the front row of Rove Live ), Feb 2004. THat second Melbourne gig was up with the highlights of the entire tour. He cranked up yet again in the USA on part 2 of the tour soon after - introducing Station to Station, Diamond Dogs, Bewlay Brothers and Supermen etc into the setlist. It must have been terribly fun, but draining of course, for anyone.... let alone someone his age who puts so much into the live performances.
I too, am keen to check the early tour pix VS the sudden end of tour pix.
BTW, where was that attachment pic fom.... Wellington? (In the rain/raincoat?).
Claude, thanks for awesome memories of the most wonderful tour for us all
Get Bowie Back Downunder!
