This was to be Bowie's last concert....


I laughed so hard at that bit. I saw him on his 'last tour' in 2004, and I only saw that because he had heart complications during one of the later shows (was it an attack?) and apparently can't tour anymore.

I doubt that will stop him.

I don't think he meant this to be his last concert ever. It was his last concert as 'Ziggy Stardust'

the reality tour was NOT supposed to be his last......HELLO NEW YORK MAY 2007 HIGH LINE FESTIVAL. yeah....and the person above is right, ziggy was his las ZIGGY tour not his last tour...it was the last show THEY'D ever do, which is true. definitely not his. I'll think we'll see more from the man in the future at least i hope...sorry if i was abrupt :)

And I always thought the significance of him singing Rock 'n Roll Suicide after his farewell speech was because he was killing Ziggy.

Pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space 'cos its bugger all down here on Earth.

Bowie really did mean to retire from music back then but it didn't last long.

Vincebruno he never said he was retiring as a performer/recording artist. He was talking about the whole Ziggy Stardust concept only.
