Music legend David Bowie has denied he plans to revive his Ziggy Stardust persona for U.S. music festival Coachella. Rumours circulated in British tabloids suggested the star was gearing up to bring back his legendary flame-haired character during a headlining slot at the April (09) event in California.
A source told British tabloid the Daily Star, "Coachella tried to book Bowie last year and he refused, so they got Prince to headline instead. But there's a very strong chance they will be able to persuade him this year."
The reports added Bowie had been asked to perform his 1972 glam LP, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, in its entirety for the three-day gig.
But Bowie, who has been in semi-retirement since a minor heart scare in 2004, has denied he will play the popular event.
A representative for the singer tells he has "no plans to play".
Bowie killed off his Ziggy Stardust character in 1973, claiming it hindered his creativity.
