A Reality Tour was an international tour that began after Bowie released his album "Reality." It was the longest tour of Bowie's career. The tour ended abruptly after a performance in Germany, during which Bowie suffered chest pains. The cause was an acutely blocked coronary artery, which required an angioplasty. The final 14 performances were canceled.
After the surgery, Bowie reduced his musical output considerably. His only performances have been one-off appearances.
In 2013, Bowie released "The Next Day," his first album in 10 years. A compilation album, "Nothing Has Changed," was released in 2014.
Bowie has achieved significant commercial and critical success. He has sold over 125 million albums worldwide. He has received many awards and nominations throughout his career, including a Grammy Award for best short form video in 1985 and an MTV Video Music Award in 1984. He became a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee in 1996 and received a Grammy Award for lifetime achievement in 2006.
Bowie has also worked as an actor, and he received a Saturn Award for best actor in 1976.Learn more about Art & Literature
