DAVID BOWIE has assured longtime friends and collaborators who worked with him on his comeback album they won't have to learn how to perform the tracks live - because he has no plans to tour.
The rocker announced news of new music and released a new single on his birthday on Tuesday (08Jan13), but producer Tony Visconti tells NME.com fans needn't start saving up for concert tickets.
He said, "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, will be released in March (13).
