The rain came pouring down during this concert! Those 40,000 people were really down on their luck.
In an Australian radio interview in November 1983,Bowie is asked about this concert:
?: “One of the memorable things for Melbourne people,from the last concert tour was the Melbourne concert,because if you remember correctly it rained”.
DB: “I remember it very well”.
?: “And I saw the Brisbane concert – you didn’t say a lot of things on stage,yet in Melbourne you actually made a point of stopping and saying,if I remember correctJy: “If you’re crazy enough to stay for this while it’s raining,we’re crazy enough to play”, and there was real magic in that concert”.
DB: “It was wonderful ,yeah”.
?: “What kind of memories do you have about that particular rain-soaked day at Melbourne?”.
DB: “Well,exactly that,I think the enthusiasm of both ourselves and the audience was something as a concert I always looked back as very fond memories on. That was the high light for me of the last tour”.
