|David Bowie fans can rejoice over the news that A Reality Tour is finally being released as a double-CD, an audio remastering of his hugely successful 2004 tour including three previously unreleased tracks from the concert: China Girl, Breaking Glass and Fall Dog Bombs The Moon.|
Caught at the very apex of his storied career, fronting a crack band that spotlights guitarist Earl Slick, Bowie cuts loose with "Fame" (co-written with John Lennon); a thrilling audience sing-along version of "All The Young Dudes" (a huge hit Bowie penned for Mott The Hoople); "Under Pressure" (co-written by Bowie and members of Queen, including Freddie Mercury); and "Changes," the Bowie song that all but defines the man's career in a single word. With few exceptions, no other singer in the history of pop music has been around for this long and sounds as exciting now as he ever did!
The album features over 30 classic Bowie songs spanning from The Man Who Sold the World album (1970), all the way to Reality album (2003), along with collaborations such as Sister Midnight (with Iggy Pop) and "Under Pressure" (with Queen), and snippets and teasers of Bowie classics such as "Space Oddity" and "Golden Years" - this is essentially a Greatest Hits Live package!

|Originally released as a home video in 2004, David Bowie's A Reality Tour saw a two-CD audio release slated for January 2010, with three previously unreleased bonus tracks -- "Fall Dogs Bombs the Moon," "Breaking Glass," "China Girl" -- adding value to those hardcore fans who already own this concert as a DVD. In either the video or audio incarnation, this November 2003 Dublin, Ireland show is an entertaining, open-hearted set, finding Bowie running through a generous selection of oldies -- both hits and album tracks, including songs written by Bowie, like "All the Young Dudes" and "Sister Midnight" -- and new songs that hold up well next to the classics. This is Bowie in his mode as a crowd-pleasing professional, playing with considerable charm and skill, offering no surprises but plenty of pleasure: it's not the first album that will come to mind when thinking of live Bowie, but as it's playing, it's hard to resist. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine|
