Ever since the surprise release of his 2013 album The Next Day, fans of David Bowie have been hopefully waiting for a tour from the superstar.

Even now two years have passed, many have still been waiting patiently for news of a tour – holding out for a surprise announcement or something.

Well it now seems official that Bowie will never tour again, as Isle Of Wight Festival promoter John Giddings has revealed Bowie has absolutely no intention to go on tour.

Speaking to MusicWeek, Giddings said:

David is one of the best artists I’ve ever worked with. But every time I see him now, before I even speak to him, he goes, ‘I’m not touring’ and I say, ‘I’m not asking’.

He has decided to retire and, like Phil Collins, you can’t demand these people go out there again and again and again. I’m really pleased and proud that the last show he ever did in the UK was the 2004 Isle Of Wight Festival.

Although that pretty much rules out ever seeing another headline David Bowie gig, fans can take solace in the fact the iconic singer continues to make new music.

Following the critical and commercial success of The Next Day, Bowie recently premiered new music in the form of the theme tune for the upcoming TV series The Last Panthers – a six-part crime drama on Sky.
