‘Young Americans’ includes Bowies first dialogue during the intro, ‘1984’ sounds completely out of place amongst the soul ‘vibe’ and the set list generally seems quite disjointed. Jean Genie opens with the chorus lines from ‘Love Me Do’, so it’s not a full medley or anything but ‘Jean Genie’ is a pretty good rendition, and the best track of the album so far. ‘Moonage Daydream’ is surprisingly good too, despite Sanborns alto sax replacing the guitar solo. During the band intro, you can sense how tired Bowie is, his voice sounds weak and frigile whilst talking. ‘Can You Hear Me’ is quite a good version and features a great vocal breakdown towards the end.

‘Somebody Up There Likes Me’ is played a bit faster than on the YA album and sounds quite jaunty and is really a pretty good rendition featuring some great sax playing but Suffragette City is very poor, with very weak vocals from Bowie. The guitar and backing vocals go up and down throughout the song and seems like the sound engineers are correcting the levels on the mixing desk. There’s a weird tape jump towards the end of the song too, but not too distracting from the song.
The sound mix has been fixed for ‘Rock N Roll Suicide’ which is again is quite a good version although Bowie sounds as if he’s not quite sure what he’s doing there! ‘Diamond Dogs’ comes next and is another example of the disjointed set list. It’s a great version though and a good way to end the show and the audience leave the show on a high. Bowie announces ‘See you tomorrow’ and shortly after, a voice announces ‘Ladies And Gentlemen, Mr Bowie has left the theatre’.
