Bowie comes on stage for the second part of the show and Say’s: “Perfectly honest,I’m having a lot of trouhle seeing you. I want some uhm … is the houseligh man here? Could you put the houselights on a little bit … a bit more … a bit more … ah, that’s better. Hello!”. During Five Years someone from the audience threw a red shirt onto the stage. It landed right on the edge,so Bowie had to come to die very front to take a look at it. He went down on hands and knees to scrutinize it,then got up,but returned to have another look at it! Bowie sounds quite happy and cracks a joke or two. He liked this hall; well,he would,since it is a small theatre with a capacity of 4,500 seats,a great contrast with the enormous arenas where he did most of the concerts of this Lour. He played in this hall for two nights,although he could easily have given one concert in an arena for 10,000 people.
