David Bowie is to go on a ‘marathon’ tour of NEW YORK inspired by the routing of the race of the same name.
The star will visit small venues in the city’s five boroughs, beginning in Staten Island on October 11, ending at Manhattan’s Beacon Theatre on October 20. Afterwards, David Bowie will also play theatre dates in nearby Philadelphia (October 21) and Boston (October 23).
“The last time I came through the Northeast it was on the Area2 tour,” the star said in a statement. “We played in amphitheaters which are usually a good distance from the major cities. Marathon courses are strategically planned to bring the runners to the streets. I would like to repay the fans that traveled so far to see me by bringing my show to them. But most importantly, I could get home from all the gigs on roller skates.”
The full list of dates are at:
Staten Island Snug Harbor Music Hall (October 11)
Brooklyn St. Anne’s Warehouse (October 12)
Queen’s College Golden Center (October 16)
Jimmy’s Bronx Cafe (October 17)
New York Beacon Theatre (October 20)
Philadelphia Tower Theatre (October 21)
Boston Orpheum Theatre (October 23)
Tickets to the shows go on sale Friday (October 4), with members of the artist’s BowieNet fan organization getting first crack via a special pre-sale.
David Bowie plays London’s Carling Apollo tomorrow (October 2). In 1973, the venue played host to the artist’s final concert in his Ziggy Stardust persona.
