An excellent concert.
Here,too,most of the people did nut yet Know which songs were going to be played,but Bowie gives some of it away by saying,when the first half of the show is over: “We’ll see you in ten minutes time,with some very old songs”. “I’d like very much to introduce you to the gentlemen of my band,I’m sure you’d like to mee t them!”.

David Does Dallas. In 1978.
I have some notes from the weekend–something about “vote for Chris Bell, I guess,” “look into the price of foreign steel” and “find out more about this Terrell Owens”–but before we get to all that, here’s something from the archives worth opening your Monday with: David Bowie in 1978 at the Dallas Convention Center Arena. Among the selections is one of my favorite Bowie songs, “Hang on to Yourself” from the 1972 album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars–one of 23 songs he played that April 10 night on the Low tour. Was gonna show you just that one song–the clip was added over the weekend, which makes it brand-new…to you–but, hell, we’ll just give you all of the clips we can find from the show, which apparently aired on network TV as David Bowie on Stage, with 21 minutes’ worth of material and six songs, including “Speed of Life” and “Ziggy Stardust.” All but one of them, organized in the order in which they were performed according to various set lists from that night, are after the jump; you can go here to see the broadcast’s opener, “What in the World.” If nothing else, Google’s gonna pay $1.6 billion for stuff like this. We go get it for you at no additional charge. –Robert Wilonsky
