Playing for 5,500 fans, Bowie was “very comfortable in his own skin,” reported Bream. He encouraged the crowd to sing along on “All the Young Dudes” and took a mulligan on the opening of “China Girl.” He was still in great voice — in fact, wrote Bream, “in concert, he is a better singer than on CD/record — more intense, more dynamic, with more range and power. He sang as if the songs mattered to him as much as they obviously did to his fans.”

Bowie 1-11-04

Bowie played for about 135 minutes, with a set about evenly divided among hits, deep tracks, and new material. Among the numbers he pulled out were the then-new “Reality,” “Life On Mars,” “Suffragette City,” “Fashion,” and “I’m Afraid of Americans,” which had been his calling card at Roy Wilkins seven years prior. “The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer had enough arena-anthem choruses to keep the crowd rocking,” wrote Bream, “and enough genre-expanding experimentation to please the aging hipsters.”

On HowWasTheShow.com, David de Young wrote that it was “unquestionably a great rock show, but not for the reasons commonly cited. Neither the music nor the production were over the top. No new musical ground was broken. Instead, this show stands out because it was such pure David Bowie.”

At Target Center, Bowie also met his entire local audience — at least, in a manner of speaking.

“Saying he didn’t know our names,” wrote de Young, “he asked us to each introduce ourselves starting with the guy in the first seat, first row stage right. As this would have taken a while in a venue that seats up to 15,000, Bowie decided to have us all scream our names at once. Even those of us who might not normally do such things gladly participated, and I must say it was a cathartic as well as proud experience for me to scream, ‘DAVID!!!!!’ at the top of my lungs.”
