David Bowie
David Bowie’s wife, Iman, has dropped a strong hint that the veteran rocker may indeed tour behind his new comeback album, The Next Day. Speaking to the UK publication, Grazia, Iman alluded to that possibility with this statement: “We have a 12 year old in school, so we are stuck, we can't travel. Our schedule is around her, so I don't know. We'll have to go visit him, but we won't be on tour with him because she's in school.”

Speculation about whether or not Bowie will tour has been rampant since news of the album broke. Producer Tony Visconti has said Bowie is “fairly adamant” about not hitting the road; on the other hand, Bowie guitarist Gerry Leonard has placed the odds at “50/50.” Iman also talked about the loyalty of Bowie’s collaborators, who maintained a code of silence during the making of The Next Day. “Everyone asks, 'How did he keep it so quiet?'” she said. “But they were loyal to his vision [when he asked if] they just keep it under wraps until it was released. They were just happy he was working on something and it's just great to hear him.”
