David Bowie ‘A Reality Tour’ 3 LP box set coming May 27th

Friday Music has set David Bowie’s A Reality Tour for release for the first time ever on vinyl on May 27th. It comes as a 180-gram Audiophile 3 LP Box Set featuring nearly three hours of music.

The 2004 show — previously released on CD and DVD but never on LP — is an extensive live and final overview of his greatest hits, popular album tracks, along with artist and fan favorites, performed live during his amazing performance in Dublin, Ireland.

Featuring almost three hours of music on six sides of audiophile vinyl, the songs are simply some of his finest from the classic and modern rock eras like “Heroes,” “Ziggy Stardust,” “Changes,” “Fame,” “Under Pressure,” “All The Young Dudes,” “Rebel, Rebel” and many more. Mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music and Capitol Mastering, this limited edition release will be housed in a very handsome sturdy box, with two first time poster inserts featuring the wonderful 12” x 12” front cover image as well as a 12” x 24” double-sided poster featuring unique live performance shots from this great concert tour.

For a very limited time, each LP will be pressed by R.T.I. on translucent blue vinyl, making A Reality Tour a highly collectable David Bowie title. Each LP label will have its own custom David Bowie image, plus there are three bonus tracks only found on the CD version of the original release: “China Girl,” “Fall Dog Bombs The Moon” and “Breaking Glass.”

Bowie was one of the world’s finest gifts to all forms of popular culture, music, film and art. His voice, songs, musicianship and unparalleled artistry will live on. A Reality Tour proves that now and forever. Friday Music is the home to several of Bowie’s later masterworks like Heathen, Reality, Earthling, Outside and Hours.

Two other Bowie titles that were part of the David Bowie Five Years 1969-1973 vinyl box set are getting standalone issues on June 17th via Rhino/Parlophone. Live Santa Monica ’72 and Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars (The Motion Picture Soundtrack) will both be released as heavyweight 180-gram 2 LP vinyl editions.
