The rain came pouring down during this concert! Those 40,000 people were really down on their luck.


In an Australian radio interview in November 1983,Bowie is asked about this concert:
?: “One of the memorable things for Melbourne people,from the last concert tour was the Melbourne concert,because if you remember correctly it rained”.
DB: “I remember it very well”.
?: “And I saw the Brisbane concert – you didn’t say a lot of things on stage,yet in Melbourne you actually made a point of stopping and saying,if I remember correctJy: “If you’re crazy enough to stay for this while it’s raining,we’re crazy enough to play”, and there was real magic in that concert”.
DB: “It was wonderful ,yeah”.
?: “What kind of memories do you have about that particular rain-soaked day at Melbourne?”.
DB: “Well,exactly that,I think the enthusiasm of both oursel­ves and the audience was something as a concert I always looked back as very fond memories on. That was the high­ light for me of the last tour”.

  1. The Lyndale fans queued up for plumb seats the night prior to Saturday 18th Nov. Melbourne show. got spooked by drunk sharps looking for some one to biff, but were overwhelmed by scary feather hair cut fans grooving to Bowie tunes on getto blasters. Didn’t receive plumb seats, we were too far from window 18? ended up in the heavens on the night . soaked to the skin . a little wine or was it yallumba port tanked up ? got us all thru the night. DB thanked the crowd for their dedication.. Rebel Rebel ( uSA version) the best for me . Train ride home to Dande was brill beep beep
