He is reportedly working on a new album but don't expect to see those songs performed live, as iconic UK singer David Bowie has reportedly retired from touring. 

Speaking in an interview with Music Week, Bowie's booking agent John Giddings, who also reps acts such as Madonna and U2, as well as promoting the English music festival Isle Of Wright, said the 68-year-old performer is not interested in touring again. 

"David [Bowie] is one of the best artists I've ever worked with. But every time I see him now, before I even speak to him, he goes, I'm not touring and I say, I'm not asking," Giddings said.

"He has decided to retire and, like Phil Collins, you can’t demand these people go out there again and again and again. I'm really pleased and proud that the last show he ever did in the UK was the 2004 Isle Of Wight Festival."

Bowie has performed in over ten world tours throughout his illustrious career, with the last being his A Reality Tour, in support of his 2003 record, Reality.

The London-born artist is yet to confirm or deny Giddings' comments, though fans can only wait and see if a tour could possibly eventuate when (or if) his new album comes to fruition.
