Bowie informs the audience that “This is our last night here,I’m afraid” and tells them that he enjoyed playing in the Apollo an awful lot. At the end of Ziggy Stardust Bowie sings: ” … and Ziggy played … “ and the audience respond “guitar!”.
David Bowie played Glasgow’s Apollo in June 1978.
The music venue was under threat of closing to make way for a bingo hall.
Fidelma Cook caught up with the Ziggy Stardust singer backstage where he talked about Scottish music fans, the Apollo as a venue and taking his show on the road.
This is the original Reporting Scotland TV film from 1978
