French host Guillaume Durand, a long time fan, was really happy to welcome David Bowie on the set of his show. The performance of the seven songs was brilliant and most of the talking, despite a few translation problems, was very interesting. The idea was to have other artists on the set, maybe not all Bowie-connected, but all fully aware of DB's music. Among them were Damon Albarn, Air and Francoise Hardy.

The duet with Damon and DB is a real slice of history. "Fashion", on that special night, sounded more modern than ever! The chat between David and Damon was also great and David insisted on the fact that he considers "Think Tank" as one of the best albums of the year.

Francoise Hardy, a very famous singer during the sixties/seventies and now a living icon, was delighted to finally meet David. She'd been saying for the last fifteen years how much she loved him as a songwriter, singer and performer and was now able to meet the man in the flesh! David also seemed very happy and even more when she said "Outside: was her favorite album. She had also worked with Damon and Blur in the past.

Air played "Another Day" from their next album, out early next year (2004) and also had an interesting chat with David. He's been aware of their work since the magnificent "Moon Safari" and confirmed he couldn't wait to hear the new album.

Other artists "on" the show were Moby (live from New York, telling nice things about last year's (2002) US tour), Dandy Warhols (rehearsing for the tour they sent a video message from LA), Too, Many DJs and Mick Rock, live from London, who talked about his "Moonage Daydream" book with our man.

The chat did include some fantastic moments (even though David couldn't always hear the questions properly) among them the bits about Salvador Dali and Elvis Presley.

Notes:
- The interviews on this DVD are in French.
- This is the complete Trafic.Musique show, with some non-Bowie content (Air).
- Quality is superb, much better than other versions of this show available.
- The title is "Traffic" on the artwork, so it is the same here.

NEW: David Bowie live in Montreux 2002 - 1DVD - July 18

Name: David Bowie - 2002-07-18 - Auditorium Stravinsky - Montreux - Vaud - Switzerland (Bowie Montreux Video)
Description:
Bowie Says Goodbye To Europe In Montreux
"Mmmm, shall I give 'em 'Low' for the encore, or not?"
A generous David Bowie at the Montreux Jazz Festival.
And the girl next door...
David Bowie ended the European leg of the 'Heathen' tour last night in the Stravinski Hall at the Montreux Jazz Festival, in Montreux, Switzerland. Despite sweltering temperatures, David performed a longer than usual set by rewarding the audience with a similar one to that which he performed in Cologne last week.
He started the show in the very stylish black and white clobber that has become the trademark look of this tour. BowieNet's resident mathematician has predicted that we can expect a similar look for David around the year 2012, if the pattern of 1976, 1990, 2002 is to be continued.
The fans down the front didn't disappoint in terms of launching appropriate items stage-ward at the appropriate lyrical prompts...such as "Just wishing that I had just something you wore", "I'd love to get a letter" and possibly "...your big fat dog" and perhaps even "...the girl next door"!
The first encore saw a return of that lovely little blue jacket that I'll hopefully have some shots of soon, and for the second encore of the entire 'Low' album, (excepting 'Weeping Wall') David wore the long red coat with the black platforms and baggy black trouser affair. He finished the show sans red coat, possibly due to the outrageous temperatures in the hall, but most likely just because he's a sexy sort.
"What do you think of the new hairdo then Gail? it's called The Mistral. 
I got the idea in Nimes...It takes bloody yonks to get it looking like this."
At the end of the show, in a rather surreal scene, some important type (Claude Nobs, the founder of the festival, apparently) presented DB with a huge Swiss cowbell onstage...by all accounts David was almost overcome with laughter as he struggled offstage banging his gift. Remembering his antics with various items during 'Cactus' on this tour, I'm not quite sure how I should interpret the verb "banging"? Whatever, that's a picture I would love to see.
Thanx again to SusanS for phoning through the set list, and to Philippe Bitz for the cow bell anecdote. Thanx also to UltraStar for the time machine. (Click on the above images if you're wondering what I'm talking about.) Here's last night's set list:

Lineage: Recorded on a Sony HI FI VHS-Scotch HI FI Tape

There are a few versions of this show out there, but not with this lineage. I taped it on the VHS, since it has a timer while I attended the show. It is as complete as can be, including a commercial and a 23 minute interview from New York. I left all the dj chatter in. Jazz Odyssey is the wandering begining of Betty Wrong and is a reference to Spinal Tap. I hope I do not hurt anybody's feeling but IMO, it was/is pointless. Heaven's In Here is interesting as DB sings parts of Spoonful, I Feel Free and In Every Dream Home a Heartache.

I got in line at 1:00 for this GA show. It was worth it since I was in the front row, holding on to the railing in front of the stage for dear life! It was said that a couple of Pixies were at this gig, as they performed there the previous night.
