David Bowie - Promoters making offers for David Bowie comeback

Promoters are fighting to secure David Bowie's live comeback.

The 'Where Are We Now?' singer initially said he would not perform live in support of his latest album 'The Next Day' - released in March - but has offered a lucrative multi-million pound offer by Live Nation to appear at London's Queen Elizabeth OIympic Park next year.

Fellow promoters AEG are expected to lodge a counter-offer shortly.

David, 66, made his last live appearance in 2006, performing his track 'Changes' with Alicia Keys at The Black Ball charity fundraiser in New York City. He had earlier retired from touring in 2004 after a heart attack on stage in Germany.

Despite David's insistence he won't perform, his wife, Iman - with whom he has 12-year-old daughter Alexandria - has suggested there will be some gigs, saying his family won't be able to join him on the road because of the youngster's schooling in New York.

Iman said: ''We have a 12 year old in school, so we are stuck, we can't travel.

''Our schedule is around her, so I don't know. We'll have to go visit him, but we won't be on tour with him because she's in school.''

David's guitarist, Earl Slick, also said how he feels he could get a call any time to go back on the road.

He said: ''Obviously, we want him to [perform again]. But right now, that's a big if... I could get a phone call tomorrow saying, 'You know what? Here's the setlist.'

''I don't know. I can't speak for him or the organisation. The band would love to go out. Even if it's not a huge tour, we would like to go out and do some gigs.''
