At a time when live music remains somewhat of a distant memory amid the current health crisis, the estate of David Bowie is plotting a major release with six live albums all on the way.
Due to be rolled out from the end of 2020 and into next year, the Brilliant Live Adventures series will see Bowie’s estate share six previously unreleased live recordings which were taken from 1995-1999. The albums will be released on rare, limited edition vinyl as well as CD.
While those in charge of Bowie’s material have remained tight-lipped on the specific details of the releases, it has been confirmed that the first of the six albums will be Ouvrez Le Chien, a live recording taken from Dallas’ Starplex Amphitheater on October 13th, 1995. The recording remembers Bowie amid a tour of his 1995 album Outside.
The estate has also confirmed that the other five live albums will be announced in the coming weeks. Two more will be shared this year, the remaining three due out in early 2021.
