This is a very good tape which gives a fine impression of the yelling of the super-enthusiastic Scots who haven’t seen Bowie for five years. A fine concert. Bowie ends Ziggy Stardust by a beautiful endless drawing out of “Now Ziggy played guitar”.

David Bowie played Glasgow’s Apollo in June 1978.
The music venue was under threat of closing to make way for a bingo hall.
Fidelma Cook caught up with the Ziggy Stardust singer backstage where he talked about Scottish music fans, the Apollo as a venue and taking his show on the road.
This is the original Reporting Scotland TV film from 1978
