It was put off until 1987 with a few changes.

Glass Spider tour was great , Bowie's hair was great etc etc GS bashers probably didn't get it the problem is nobody was in Bowie's league even in the 80s not Prince, madonna or Kiddie fiddler Jacko .

I would've loved it if he stuffed his tights full of root veg and wore that wig.

Yeah he missed a trick there.

The stage set could have looks like a Escher picture. He could have opened with Magic Dance the opening lines. "You remind me of the babe."

IN all seriousness I wonder what Bowie thought of Labyrinth years later?

Certainly fans have a lot of affection for it & Bowie himself said that kids would come up to him recognising him as Jareth.

It was undoubtedly a very silly role, but was it any sillier than some of his other personas?

It was a silly role but he was a good choice for the role.

"Labyrinth" was the gateway drug for a lot of Mr. Bowie's younger fans. One could argue that "Glass Spider" was his oblique attempt at a Jareth tour-by-other-means, since he didn't own that character.
"Schtum!"

I see where you're coming from. TMWFTE is to Low as Labyrinth is to NLMD.

Interesting way of looking at it.

I wonder what the signpost track on BLACKSTAR is?

Bullshit! You can't say that about Michael Jackson! He was the best! Shoot you could come closer to Bowie being a fiddler! Rrrrrr!
