B-10MusiC THE CINCINNATI ENQUIRER Thursday. June 14. 1990 V V .. . 'I fin ) V r. Bowie gives greatest hits sharp send-off BY CLIFF RADEL The Cincinnati Enquirer INDIANAPOLIS Retirement becomes David Bowie's greatest hits. As he puts songs like "Fame" and "Space Oddity" out to pasture on his Sound Vision tour, he's retiring his classic avant-pop tunes with a smile on his face, a glow in his voice and ... a tear in his eye. "David is really sad about retiring these songs. Although he feels it's time to move on and put these songs behind him, he's wondering how he's going to get through 'Space Oddity' on the last night of the tour," says Covington, Ky., native Adrian Belew. Bowie's music director and bandleader, Belew is recognized as the man with the multivoiced guitar that can weep like a whale and wail like a sax. Belew is also a man with a hit. His Young Lions is America's No. 1 post-modern rock album. The recording includes the Bowie-Belew duet, "Pretty Pink Rose," the only new song on the tour. Despite its newness, the number stands shoulder-to-shoulder with the golden oldies Bowie is sending Music review to their golden years. In concert, Bowie's older blossoms share the freshness of his just-picked "Rose" because of his band, his singing and his stage show. One of those rare rock stars whose talents dwarf the concert medium, Bowie cast a giant's shadow throughout his stunningly dynamic one-hour, 45-minute Tuesday night concert at the Deer Creek Music Center. Thanks to an artistic and technological confluence of video tape, computers, on-stage cameras and on- and off-stage screens, the audience of 10,100 (out of a possible 18,000) was at times treated to six David Bowies at once. Creating the effect as if the crowd were in the middle of a music video in the making, Bowie in the flesh would be singing, in sync, with Bowies from videos as well as front and rear shots of Bowies live and in-concert at Duck Creek.

His mime-influenced moves, swivel-hipped dancing, taunting gestures, and his sweet smile that tenderly beckoned a little girl from the audience to sit on his lap, combined to make him simultaneously at one with and apart from such iconic entertainers as Mick Jagger, Elvis Presley and James Dean. Bowie's singing was just as striking. With Belew leading a quartet (including Greater Cincin-natians Rick Fox on keyboards and Michael Hodges on dums) that could switch effortlessly from lamming like a bar band to sounding like an orchestra, Bowie sang in a voice that was just as chameleonlike. Want a spacey tone that says, "Ground control to Major Tom"? Bowie delivered it as he strolled on stage to open the show with "Space Oddity." His opener left the crowd spellbound and shocked. Rock concerts aren't supposed to start with an artist's greatest hit. At the end of the show, he was still changing voices and still shocking the audience. For the last of his three encores, Bowie returned to earth to sing the blues on Van Morrison's "Gloria." David Bowie, the smooth sophisticate, singing a beer-blast song? Outrageous! Shocking! And very, very good. 1 I Jit 1 The Associated Press David Bowie, left, and Covington, Ky., native Adrian Belew perform "Changes" Tuesday night at Duck Creek Music Center.
