After spending much of the fall touring Europe, David Bowie will bring his new album, Reality, to North American stages starting December 6th in Atlantic City.

A Reality Tour is Bowie's first full world tour in seven years (he performed as part of Moby's Area2 tour and played select dates behind Heathen last year), and it is currently scheduled to visit twenty North American cities, though additional dates are expected. Bowie and his band -- guitarists Earl Slick and Gerry Leonard, bassist/singer Gail Ann Dorsey, keyboardists Mike Garson and Catherine Russell, and drummer Sterling Campbell -- have worked up a batch of fifty songs from throughout his career, and plan to offer varied set lists. Macy Gray will open all dates.

Following his North American itinerary, Bowie plans to take the show to Australia and the Far East. By the tour's end, he will have performed in seventeen countries.

Song Stories

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
