In January 1983, David Bowie invited Stevie Ray Vaughan to record guitar for six new tracks he’d written for his upcoming album, Let’s Dance.Vaughan’s powerful and unique guitar work brought a fresh sound to Bowie’s music, most famously on songs like ‘China Girl’ and the record’stitle track. With the album a success, Bowie was keen for Vaughan to join his group for the subsequent Serious Moonlight Tour. However, withVaughan reluctant to leave Double Trouble (who had just finished recording their debut album, Texas Flood), David’s management offered to letthe group open the show on select tour dates. However, just four days before the tour began, Bowie's team reneged, telling Vaughan’s manager,Chesley Millikin,that the band would not be included and, furthermore, Vaughan wasn't allowed to talk about the group or its new record ininterviews. With the offer pulled, Milikin understandably took Vaughan off the tour. And although both artists still achieved huge critical andcommercial success during the 1980s, what they might have gone on to do together remains one of rock's great "What Ifs". No video footage ofBowie and Vaughan performing together is known to exist. However, rehearsals for the tour, which took place at the Las Colinas Soundstage inDallas - Stevie Ray’s hometown - on 26th April 1983, were not only recorded but broadcast on local radio too, thus allowing these legendarysessions to be heard again today.MARKETING & PROMOTION / SELLING POINTSStevie Ray Vaughn and David Bowie live 1983 rehearsal broadcast for the Serious Moonlight Tour!
