The fourth album in the David Bowie ‘Brilliant Live Adventures (1995-1999)’ series will be released in February, “Look At The Moon! (Live Phoenix Festival 97)” will be released on 2CD and 3LP formats on 12th February on Parlophone. The record comes on black vinyl, and there are also new “Look At The Moon! official T-shirts available, all of which can be bought separately or as bundles.

Recorded Live at The Phoenix Festival, Long Marston, England on 20th July, 1997, “Look At The Moon!” features such previously unreleased rarities as a cover of Laurie Anderson’s O Superman, which the band had also played at their secret show as ‘The Tao Jones Index’ at the festival the previous day. Other covers include Under Pressure, which Bowie famously recorded with Queen, and a version of The Velvet Underground’s White Light/White Heat.

The recording features David Bowie on vocals, guitar and saxophone; Zachary Alford on drums; Gail Ann Dorsey on bass, keyboards, vocals and lead vocals on O Superman; Reeves Gabrels on guitars, synths and vocals, and Mike Garson on piano, synths and keyboards. Phoenix Festival, which was set up by John Vincent Power in 1993, was held at Long Marston Airfield near Stratford-upon-Avon. David Bowie played the Sunday night headliner slot of the 1997 festival, coming on after Orbital and Texas, on the 20th July.

The show saw Bowie play a mix of hits from across his back catalogue, as well as songs from Earthling, which he had released on 3rd February that year and which he was in the process of touring. “Look At The Moon! (Live Phoenix Festival 97)” is the fourth installment in the series of six live albums from the 90s which are being released on vinyl and CD in limited, one-run-only pressings.

There are also special, limited edition boxes for both the vinyl and CDs, allowing fans to house the full collection. The albums and boxes will only be available from the David Bowie official store and via the Dig! store.
