Saw him here in 1983 as part of his Serious Moonlight Tour.


Was on the grass in Winnipeg Stadium and the crowd just kept pushing forward the whole concert and we ended the concert pretty close to the stage.



Saw him again in 1987  but 1983 was far better IMO.

That's a variant of Dennis Leary's "No Cure For Cancer" discussing SRV and Motley Crue.

Never saw him either and that's now a regret.  My biggest fuckup in that area was missing Nirvana, early GREAT Pearl Jam and the RHCP @ The Roseland Ballroom on NYE one year.  The only band I don't regret missing is The Who as they're a shell of themselves since 1989.

Simon Pegg (Hot Fuzz) tweeted that if you're ever sad, just remember the world is 4.543 billion years old, and you somehow managed to exist at the same time as David Bowie.

Bowie transcended the whole rock and roll genre. He couldn't be pigeonholed into any one niche. His output of top quality studio and live work leaves a legacy that few rockers could only dream about. The fact that he reinvented himself a few different times and was completely successful at it speaks volumes on the mans talent. Ziggy Stardust, the Thin White Duke, Aladdin Sane were all different but yet still David Bowie. His work with Iggy Pop, John Lennon, and Queen all produced top quality work. His live band who's alumni over the years included Mick Ronson, Stevie Ray Vaughn, the Sales brothers, Carlos Alomar, and Earl Slick would all make anybody's all star team. He will be missed. He will be missed a lot.

I saw David Bowie live at the Sydney Showground on Saturday 25 November 1978 - along with about 20,000 other fans.

Credit for the ticket scan goes to Peter Green via Harry Williams on the great bowiedownunder.com site. For some reason, I just can't find my own ticket some 37 years later.  :)

bowiedownunder.com states that "reviews of the Sydney shows were ecstatic. (Journalist) Stephen Dowse's review for an English newspaper concluded that Bowie was 'undoubtedly the total master of his environment and physically and intellectually the most exciting performer in the world today'."

Cheers!

Ed

I may be in the minority but my favorite song from him was Boys Keep Swinging.

Good lord, Bowie was friggin great but the over the top ball-washing people are giving him is going a little overboard..

Bowie's collaborations were awesome.  I was never a huge fan of his, but "Under Pressure" with Queen is one of my favorite songs ever, and his work with Lennon, McCartney, Elton John, Lou Reed, Iggy Pop, Mott the Hoople, Trent Reznor, the list just goes on and on, some of his strongest work.

The Westboro Baptist Church will be picketing Bowie's funeral for his "disgusting" lifestyle, and they have found an unlikely ally in the far left, who have been responsible for an online smear campaign against Bowie reminding people that he was suspected of (and cleared of all charges) rape, and also certainly had consensual sex with at least a few teenage girls, one who has gone into detail about being de-virginized by Bowie when she was 14 and seemed to enjoy the experience quite a bit and will tell anyone who will listen about it.  I think the far left and the WBC actually have a lot in common when you think about it.

I wonder if any celebs will go after the Westboro gang at the funeral for the photo op?

Okay, I'm starting to miss him a little more.
