Rumours are swirling after David Bowie’s booking agent, John Giddings, told Music Week that Bowie says, “I’m not touring,” every time he sees Giddings.

Giddings said in his interview, “He [Bowie] has decided to retire and, like Phil Collins, you can’t demand these people go out there again and again and again.”

Since it has been about 10 years since Bowie’s last liver performance, we’re rounded up 10 of our favourite live Bowie performances—in no particular order—for your viewing (and listening) pleasure.

“Ziggy Stardust”


“Young Americans”

“Under Pressure” (with Annie Lennox)

“Moonlight Daydream”

“Dancing in the Street”

“Something in the Air”

“Rebel Rebel”

“Bring Me the Disco King”


And of course, it may be the 11th song on our “Top 10” list, but how could make this list without adding “Space Oddity”
