REVIEW
David Bowie thrills 36,000 fans at Roker Park, Sunderland, in 1987
Here in the region, Bowie had performed landmark shows at Newcastle City Hall in 1972 and 1973, returning for a trio of celebrated gigs at the same venue in June 1978,

 36,000 David Bowie fans at Roker Park, Sunderland, June 23, 1987

Later he would grace Newcastle Mayfair in 1991, Newcastle Riverside in 1997, and he was the first major artist to appear at Newcastle Arena in 1995.

But it was the Roker Park show in 1987 which attracted his biggest North East crowd.

More than 36,000 fans descended for the show on a day which began with sunshine, but ended with torrential rain.

Bowie, in fact, might have performed at St James’ Park had a Chronicle story from March 1983 come to fruition. We reported how promoter Harvey Goldsmith was considering promoting a summer show at the Toon’s home following the success of the Stones a year earlier – but the plan was scrapped.

Notes

Hiss removal using iZotope RX2 denoiser tool.

Tape flip between Absolute Beginners and Loving The Alien – seamless.
Tape runs out on Never Let Me Down – faded and used as break between the discs.
Tape flip between Sons Of The Silent Age and Dancing With The Big Boys – seamless.
Pause and fade on source tape between Fame (encore break) and Blue Jean – cleaned up a little, but fade-in on Blue Jean left alone.
Sector Boundary Errors fixed with TLH.
