David Bowie ‘The Kit Kat Klub (Live New York 99)’ Announced
The sixth and final release in the David Bowie Brilliant Live Adventures series of single pressing live albums from the 90s has been announced. David Bowie’s The Kit Kat Club (Live New York 99) is the final installment in the limited run.
The Kit Kat Klub (Live New York 99) is a 12-track live album, recorded on 19th November 1999 in front of an invite-only audience of fans and contest winners a gig promoting Hours, his 21st studio album that had been released the previous month.
The show was recorded and filmed for a webcast the following month via Liveonline.net. The audio from the show was only previously available as a very rare 12-track promotional CD.
The photos used on the inner gatefold of the CD and LP are by Alison Hale, a fan who traveled the world to see multiple Bowie shows before she sadly passed away in 2012.
