Total running time: 1:16:52
Note: Good quality audience recording – I’d give it SQ 7,5

Recorded on an AIWA handheld unit from the 3rd (or so) row in front of the speakers. The old AIWA had a built in “cube microphone” as some may know and so the dynamic range isn’t the best….however as this is a master I wanted to put it out there. It’s clear as a bell, a good listen, and probably a real upgrade over all the NJ recordings from 1987, as I always see 2 stars or less on various ratings.
I’d like to thank those that assisted with this recording, and only hope this posting perhaps will lead to an “ultimate version” coming out from someone else someday, as there had to be many tapers inside Giants Stadium those 2 nights. I also have the master from the 3rd, which is not as complete as this

FLASHBACK: David Bowie’s 1987 ‘Glass Spider’ Tour Was ‘Colorful, Vulgar, Dreamlike’

David Bowie was a consummate entertainer, and his enthusiasm for his live stage shows came through in this ET flashback, as the rockstar prepared to launch his 1987 Glass Spider Tour.

“I try and do something I want to go and see really, that’s the essence of whatever I do,” Bowie told ET at the time. “This particular tour, for instance, I’ve really tried to put together all the elements, everything that I’ve been fascinated [with] in theater and rock, ever since the beginning of my career.”

The worldwide tour, in support of Bowie’s album Never Let Me Down, was a massive stage production, which included appearances by guitarist Peter Frampton and choreography by Toni Basil. The set, described at the time as the “largest touring set ever” was designed to look like a giant spider.

“It looks like the kind of show I really want to go and see myself. It’s fast, colorful, vulgar, loud, subtle, quiet, dreamlike. I mean, it has so many different qualities to it,” the singer, then 40, said before the first show.

Bowie conceived the tour as a theatrical stage show, including spoken-word introductions to songs, vignettes, videos, and props.

“I’m not really good at getting up there and singing a couple songs,” he said, admitting that he was “excited and nervous” to launch the tour. “I really like to make a piece of theater out of it.”

Bowie died on Sunday at 69 after quietly battling cancer for 18 months. His son, Moon director Duncan Jones, confirmed the news on Twitter, posting: “Very sorry and sad to say it’s true. I’ll be offline for a while. Love to all.”

The singer never publicly acknowledged his illness, but released his final album, Blackstar, on Friday, his 69th birthday. On Tuesday, Billboard reported that Blackstar was already on its way to becoming Bowie’s first-ever No. 1 album.

Born David Robert Jones, Bowie is survived by his wife of 23 years, supermodel Iman; his 15-year-old daughter, Alexandria Jones; and his 44-year-old son, Duncan.
