Rocker David Bowie is reportedly in talks to bring back his legendary Ziggy Stardust persona for a one-off appearance at a U.S. music festival.
Bowie, who is currently back in the studio recording a new album, is said to be in talks with the organisers of this year's (09) Coachella event in California over a special headline performance.
The hitmaker has been asked to perform his 1972 glam LP, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, in it's entirety for the three-day gig in April (08).
A source tells British newspaper the Daily Star, "Coachella tried to book Bowie last year and he refused, so they got Prince to headline instead. But there's a very strong chance they will be able to persuade him this year."
Bowie - who has been in semi-retirement since a minor heart scare in 2004 - killed off his theatrical rock star persona in 1973, claiming the character hindered his creativity.
