Bowie Denies Coachella Reports

A statement at David Bowie's official Web site denies media reports that the U.K. rock veteran has been booked to play the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in April.

There had been reports that Bowie would perform his 1972 concept album "The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars" at the Californian festival.

The statement added that Bowie does not have a Twitter account. It follows media coverage of message posted by a user named 'David Bowie' who claimed to be working in Berlin on a new album.
