David Bowie Guitarist Gerry Leonard Claims Chances Of Tour Are '50/50'

Gerry Leonard - the guitarist who performs with David Bowie - has claimed that the chances of a tour to coincide with the release of the rock and pop icon’s comeback album ‘The Next Day’ are ‘50/50’, fuelling speculation of a roadtrip.

Bowie surprised his legions of fans at the start of the year, after unveiling a brand new single - ‘Where Are We Now’ - and a brand new album, his first for 10 years. Of course, with a new album on the way (it’s released March 11th here in the UK), rumours of a tour have been circulating the web, and ahead of his second single release in ‘The Stars (Are Out Tonight)’, his bandmates have revealed that the chances are 50/50.

Speaking to Rolling Stone, Leonard said: “I would say that it's 50-50. A couple of times, when we played back one of the more kick-ass tunes from the new record, he'd be like, 'This would be great live!' Of course, everyone was like, 'What? Did he just say that?' But other times he'd just roll his eyes if someone brought up playing live.”

Earl Slick, another bandmate of Bowie’s, made similar comments at the start of the month - saying: “It's kind of like doing the record. I wouldn't be surprised if he toured and I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't tour... I know I would like a tour to happen!”

No official plans have been announced yet, so we’re going to have to play the waiting game - our least favourite game - to find out whether Bowie hits the road or not. Would you like to see Bowie tour? Let us know in the comment section below.
