Sounds like fun rancell... I envy you :-) Now, I'm hoping next year he does a proper tour... and gets his skinny arse out near me, so maybe some of you NYers can come visit instead of me coming out to see you all the time ;-)

Four songs at CBS today, three from Heathen, one oldie that already has been done on national TV. An interview, an additional question. Nothing that hasn't been done or said before, nothing new, your basic straightforward appearance. What has been amazing about this now apparently concluded performance year is that very few of these shows weren't just mere appearances. There was no tour by industry or by Bowie standards, just a series of appearances. And even when he was just appearing, doing the same thing over and over, it turned out terrific, as indicated by the reviews. Today, even though they politely refrained from rolling their eyes during the interview, the band really seemed into it. And so did Bowie. It was terrific fun, as was Roseland, Area2, and the recent return shows. Clearly, the return to Europe last month and in early October got the best of it. But we did pretty well too, and who knows how good it will be when he actually works on the setlist for the duration of a tour, goes to soundchecks, and gives himself and the music even more breathing room. One last thing: after the taping, there were no extras, but he did emphatically promise that he would see us next year, echoing remarks over the past couple of weeks. I hope that means more than just Tibet. :-)

Bowie sounded fine on Wednesday and Thursday, but complained jokingly about his first cold of the season on Wednesday night. It appeared, with the exception of the late main set placement of "Life on Mars?" both nights, that he took songs that wouldn't be particularly voice-taxing to sing. He didn't sound quite as strong Thursday, and he played the exact same songs despite a different setlist originally being set out, dropping at least two. You would have figured that he would have conserved himself Wednesday, but it was the opposite. The fact that Columbia said it would be "big ballad" Slip Away leading Conan last night, and it was Afraid instead, may mean he was still bothered and conserving for the beginning tomorrow of three shows in four nights. Maybe not. He sounded fine again last night, but the selections performed aren't as hard to sing as Slip Away. At a minimum, Sunday and Monday will be like the 6/19/00 steroid party; I wouldn't worry about it. As noted, Thursday was still a terrific performance, and I'm sure that people who hadn't seen it are saying that it was one for the ages.

I just got the Columbia mailer at 7pm asking us to tune in to Conan tonight, listing the two tunes he does on the show. They should have waited, because the E-mail is wrong. By all means tune in; this appearance was a very good one. The band sounded great, real guitar crunch live (Tapes off? Keyboards mixed poorly? Whatever, it was very cool). They nailed the two songs they did. And the rest of the show was real funny. It sure as heck appears that the voice problems led to the new setlist being brought out last night, and the first one--which impeccable authority says included Stay and Moonage Daydream--being scrapped. They also say that Alabama Song was soundchecked. It's my own problem for being disappointed in seeing the same show, but smaller, and without those above songs, because despite the voice concerns, the Bronx performance was still astounding. What a week.

Hello dearies, Has anybody got a good picture of David Bowie from around the mid-70's where he sort of leans on a gun with his chin? I used t have a copy from the book 'songs of David Bowie' released in the early 80's, it is a shot of his head only, with a bit of his shoulder, and I was quite fond of it.. Feel free to mail, and instant karma will be yours.. Thanks, Heyme

checking out 32444dc Bowie poster noticed there is a small spec, not as noticable on the 32445dc.Sure look good though! must be from the Golaxis picture session last year. Artist Ray Nunchello approached him last year about the Heathen look, but didnt think he would be able to do the tour sets and consequently took a rain check. Nevermind Nunchello's only one flat plate negative is a possibility for the promised "inside" album due around the tenth anniversary of Outside. Possibilities include the 2004 fall.Gerry Stickles is reputedly angry that they never hired Nunchello for the tour, as he wanted to build a mausoleam at Rochester Amphi to ring out the mainside kettle drums, as a salute to the tribe of Ghirana Indians that once lived around that area. Never happened ! but at least Maidson Squ has two rows of b30 seats that should lay any Manny Leon interpretations done and dusted and up for no more speculation.Not a dry eye in the house the other night, clinging onto the Bewlay Boys ,even though the hitched diatribe slowly drowing out the Terry references,knocked on the head the baseline.

Posters went up in my neighborhood in the past 24 hours promoting Heathen. Big picture of Bowie from the batch of promotional shots we started seeing late last year. It notes along the bottom that he is appearing live in NYC, Philly and Boston, so presumably it is papering walls in those towns as well. A signing? Still no indication that they sent CDs of ESH to radio stations. Presumably, some or all of this will be repeated next week with the best of.

Just that I thought that ESH would be sent to radio, and there would be some measure of promotion of it and Heathen a few months down the road, and that SNL would be the likeliest TV choice to do that. But apparently it doesn't work that way anymore, everyone has gotten their bucks out of Heathen even if U.S. sales were typically lousy, and it simply isn't worth the effort to push a new single (or any single). And no one goes on SNL to sing oldies. So that leaves Regis. I hope I'm wrong about Heathen's death, especially with the Grammy nods on the way. It's just odd, because there are several appearances as noted, and I can't imagine not doing a current song on at least one of them. Granted, there were no classics last time 'round on Conan, where the second appearance in four months surprises me. But despite the biggest weekend of promotion on NYC radio since the classic rock station did the Kit Kat Klub stuff in 1999--yes, way more than we heard in June--there is still no greatest hits in the stores, and it will still be at least 10 days or more away after the last TV appearance. Finally, if they can put a new single in the stores in Canada this month, how come Columbia can't get ESH on an adult Top 40 radio station here? I guess the answer is that they have to want to devote the resources to it, and since everyone has made money already, and the upside is at best limited/expensive, there's no sense in bothering.

Clearly many of the eBay sellers "cracked the code" and bought during the presale. Many are individuals who (based on number of auctions) do this sort of stuff frequently and are quite comfortable in exaggerating what they're offering. If you go that route, know what you're getting and where you're buying. I went through quite a few of the posts, and some of the claims about views, seats, and size of venue are total fantasy, utterly deceptive. The loge is not the floor. At least when a licensed broker says the opening bid for a pair of seats in the second row at the Beacon is $999, you'll know what you're getting. Screwed, but a helluva seat. (First four rows at the Beacon, BTW, are AA-DD; row A is the fifth row.) And, again, in New York state, there are strict limits. If you think you're paying a lot, you probably are, and a NY seller is breaking the law.

Yeah, they sold orchestra pairs at the box office today, evidently a pretty big line by the onsale, which I heard got pretty tense when people got thru on cellphones and found out that TM had nada. Regis and Kelly next Thursday? It's true. And on radio they STILL can't get past classic rock (huge promotion this weekend here) and get on the adult top 40 station.

I had a great TM op for the public sale, and he was waiting on the Beacon, and when it went up at noon, he just laughed. The only pair he had was up in the upper balcony, Row G (second row). Scattered singles only in the orchestra in rows M and N. One single in the loge. A friend called from the Beacon box office at about 10:30 and said there were 30 people on line ahead of her. I haven't heard, so I don't know if decent seats were held for the direct box office sale, and therefore TM had nothing. We'll find out eventually. Despite the reports of some good presale pairs, there definitely were not many, and many orchestra seats clearly were held unless some kind of miracle occurred at the theater this morning. Standard practice. But put all this another way: all five shows were instant sellouts. Keep trying if you're interested, you never know what credit cards will be turned down and the like.

The Beacon presale seats are subpar, to put it mildly. Snug Harbor and Colden are irritating because you must buy before you know where they are, not that anyone has a decent seating chart for either. Once you get your confirmation, then you know. So if you went center at SH, you wound up in the back. If you went to either side or even the not-always-helpful best available, you wound up much closer. We live, we learn, we're delighted to even be in. :-)

Analysts call this what it is, a publicity stunt, but they seem to think it's a good one, and one them says that Bowie probably will lose money on these shows. Feature article in the Wednesday Daily News: http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/story/23396p-22183c.html. Good luck with this. The full-page color ad on page 33 of the "Best of NY" section of the Voice notes that the public sale is noon on Friday, but it may actually be 10 am online, noon elsewhere.

I know that if Nite is also going to game 2 I must be doing the right thing. :-) Jimmy's will be great, no question, I can't wait for that. I'm interested in seeing how these things go up for sale. The Beacon already is up on TM online, and big thanks to Bowie for keeping a lid on his scale--lower than Ferry next month. That's cool if not necessarily cheap. St. Ann's does not use TM, it uses TM subsidiary Ticketweb. Last I checked it wasn't up. I'd guess all will wind up on TM over the next few hours, but it's hard to tell. The three theater presales posted so far at TM state that they're Internet presales, not phones. And Bowienet could mix it up, using that fan club service they used for Roseland for the other venues.

Wow, yeah, I envy us too. :-) Amazing. The structure of this also provides its own incentive for him to play his ass off. These aren't "appearances." Personally, I just two nights ago got a ticket for Game 2 on the 20th, so it looks like Bowie may make me have to root against the Yanks. Also, the one to be most excited about on its face, definitely, is St. Ann's, which I also can't go to, but I can guarantee you, that one will be wild. If you can only go to one, that's it. And I think it's cool that he's ending the whole thing, apparently, out of town. Those theater shows are way, way overdue.
