Bowie Says Goodbye To Europe In Montreux
“Mmmm, shall I give ’em ‘Low’ for the encore, or not?” . A generous David Bowie at the Montreux Jazz Festival.
And the girl next door…
Live at Auditorium Stravinski
If there is one artist who deserves to be described as a trailblazer and mythic figure of rock and pop, it’s definitely David Bowie. Like a chameleon, throughout his career he has never stopped reinventing himself and exploring new horizons. In his new work Heathen, he joins up again with his favourite producer Tony Visconti.
Some see this as going back to the roots, the year of the thirtief anniversary of Ziggy Stardust. On the other hand, some see this as a way of expanding the borders of pop/rock even further. One thing for sure, at the age of 55, Bowie is just as high-spirited as ever
David Bowie ended the European leg of the ‘Heathen’ tour last night in the Stravinski Hall at the Montreux Jazz Festival, in Montreux, Switzerland. Despite sweltering temperatures, David performed a longer than usual set by rewarding the audience with a similar one to that which he performed in Cologne last week.
He started the show in the very stylish black and white clobber that has become the trademark look of this tour. BowieNet’s resident mathematician has predicted that we can expect a similar look for David around the year 2012, if the pattern of 1976, 1990, 2002 is to be continued.
The fans down the front didn’t disappoint in terms of launching appropriate items stage-ward at the appropriate lyrical prompts…such as “Just wishing that I had just something you wore”, “I’d love to get a letter” and possibly “…your big fat dog” and perhaps even “…the girl next door”!
The first encore saw a return of that lovely little blue jacket that I’ll hopefully have some shots of soon, and for the second encore of the entire ‘Low’ album, (excepting ‘Weeping Wall’) David wore the long red coat with the black platforms and baggy black trouser affair. He finished the show sans red coat, possibly due to the outrageous temperatures in the hall, but most likely just because he’s a sexy sort.“What do you think of the new hairdo then Gail? it’s called The Mistral. I got the idea in Nimes…It takes bloody yonks to get it looking like this.”
At the end of the show, in a rather surreal scene, some important type (Claude Nobs, the founder of the festival, apparently) presented DB with a huge Swiss cowbell onstage…by all accounts David was almost overcome with laughter as he struggled offstage banging his gift. Remembering his antics with various items during ‘Cactus’ on this tour, I’m not quite sure how I should interpret the verb “banging”? Whatever, that’s a picture I would love to see.
