September 1: Yes, we do still exist. And in two weeks, you'll be hearing a lot more of Bowie as his new album Reality hits the market throughout Europe and the US. Featuring two covers, a long-rumored track from the past to go with eight other songs, the album is the second in Bowie's current contract with Columbia Records. To promote the album, Bowie will go on his first world tour in over a decade, including a trip down-under.

Information from Alys

June 13: With the release of Heathen this week, the promotional appearances are in full swing. This weekend marks a special event; the first appearance by Bowie on A & E's Live By Request show. Live By Request is a concept where online readers or viewers can email or call in with a request for Bowie to perform live on the show. Bowie will be performing live from a New York studio, although presumably they'll only take the requests that the band have been rehearsing for the upcoming tour. The original airing will be at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT on the A & E network this Saturday evening, June 15. You can get to a page where you'll be able to send in requests by clicking on the following banner:

Live By Request

In addition, Bowie will be making another late night appearance on television next week. This time it will be on the Late Night with Conan O'Brien show. Last time Bowie was on, he had quite a long and entertaining interview with Conan (unlike Bowie's appearances on Letterman where he usually gets just a minute or two with the host). This appearance will be on Conan's Tuesday night show after the Jay Leno show on NBC. This is strictly speaking June 19, but for most people, it's easier to remember it as the evening of June 18.

Information from Guy Polak

June 11: Well, the rumours were true. In spite of the fact that many concertgoers thought that Bowie's reported comments about the first show's setlist were a red herring, Bowie and band did indeed perform two entire albums straight through at tonight's Roseland Ballroom show. Looking very dapper in a black suit, waistcoat and white shirt (and haircut making an overall look very similar to the Station To Station 1976 tour), Bowie performed the entirety of the Low album, followed by a 10 minute break and then the entire Heathen album from start to finish. The 4 song encore comprised Hallo Spaceboy, Ashes To Ashes, Fashion and I'm Afraid Of Americans.
