David Bowie’s rare album given first ever wide release

The 1999 live recording was only ever shared on his long defunct BowieNet website

David Bowie’s rare 1999 live album has been given its first ever wide release, hitting all major streaming platforms today (May 15). was previously only made available to subscribers of BowieNet, his innovative but long-since defunct website, in 1999, and has never received a wider release since then.

The album features tracks from his Earthling tour in 1997. The tracks were recorded at shows in New York, Amsterdam, Rio De Janeiro, and the UK.

The new release included two bonus tracks: “Pallas Athena” and a revamped live version of 1977 track “V-2 Schneider” (its title is, incidentally, a reference to Florian Schneider of Kraftwerk, who died earlier this month). is one of three live Bowie albums receiving a new release over the next few months.
