David Bowie’s wife Iman sparks tour hopes

- March 13th, 2013

A slip of the tongue by David Bowie’s wife Iman may have sparked tour hopes for fans of the Thin White Duke.

In an interview with Britain’s Grazia magazine, the model accidentally let slip that she would not be joining the music legend “on tour” because their 12-year-old daughter, Alexandria, is still in school full-time in New York, where the family lives.

“We have a 12 year old in school, so we are stuck, we can’t travel. Our schedule is around her, so I don’t know. We’ll have to go visit him, but we won’t be on tour with him because she’s in school.”

Bowie has remained very tight-lipped over any plans to showcase the album live, so we imagine that she’ll be hearing from her hubby today over the comments.

In January, he shocked fans by suddenly announcing his comeback after years of silence, with the release of a single “Where Are We Now?” on his 66th birthday.

We previously reported that his long time producer Tony Visconti had dashed concert rumours, saying to NME: “He’s fairly adamant he’s never gonna perform live again… One of the guys would say, ‘Boy, how are we gonna do all this live?’ and David said, ‘We’re not’. He made a point of saying that all the time.”

Bowie’s new album, The Next Day, is out now.
