The 'Hours...' Tour was a small-scale promotional concert tour by David Bowie comprising eight live performances and numerous television appearances in support of the album 'Hours...'. A new guitarist, Page Hamilton, ex-Helmet founder member, was drafted to replace Reeves Gabrels whose final performance and association with Bowie ended at the VH1 Storytellers performance on 23 August 1999. Rumours of a split were denied by both parties, until a few months later the story changed as the guitarist admitted that he and Bowie had drifted apart.[1]


The Elysée Montmartre performance on 14 October 1999 was filmed and recorded with three songs later appearing on the CD single of "Survive" . The Libro Music Hall, Vienna, performance on 17 October 1999, coinciding with the launch of BowieNet Europe was made available as a live webcast. The performance at the Kit Kat Klub, New York City, on 19 November 1999 was recorded and filmed with a webcast of the performance as part of the American Express Blue Concert series transmitted on 7 December 1999, in addition to a simulcast radio broadcast by SFX Radio network on the same date. Three songs from the performance appeared on the CD single of "Seven" (2000).
