David Bowie fans got quite a surprise earlier this week when the rock legend ended a decade of musical silence by announcing plans to release ‘The Next Day’ in March, but the album’s producer and longtime Bowie collaborator Tony Visconti insists the singer has no plans to perform in support of the disc.

Visconti explains that Bowie made it very clear in the studio that his backing musicians needn’t worry about how to recreate ‘The Next Day’ in a live setting — because it would never be played live. “He’s fairly adamant he’s never gonna perform live again,” Visconti told NME.com. “One of the guys would say, ‘Boy, how are we gonna do all this live?’ and David said, ‘We’re not.’ He made a point of saying that all the time.”

‘The Next Day,’ Bowie’s first album since 2003′s ‘Reality,’ is due out March 12 and will include the new single ‘Where Are We Now?’ which surfaced on Tuesday (Jan. 8). Tuesday was also Bowie’s 66th birthday. Happy birthday to you, David Bowie — and will you reconsider your tour plans? Thanks!
