….As previously reported, Bowie had to cut short a concert in Prague last month because of unbearable shoulder pain. His spokesman played down the injury at the time and he went ahead with his set at the German Hurricane Festival. But shortly after that event it was announced Bowie would have to pull out of his other summer festival commitments.
