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

  1. I went to all 4 nights with my friend Stu Rattray we had camera and we used 3 rolls of film. On the last night after the concert I went straight into work . I was barman at JOANNA’S DISCO’S and who walked up to the bar none other than Sean Mayes .
    I gave him a few drinks and told him that I’d been to all 4 nights . I asked him where was David , he said that he was staying Loch Lomond.

  2. I attended all four nights at the Apollo IN fact I went to every night on the whole UK tour..Bowie was fantastic throughout..but Glasgow (and Newcastle) were the highlights of the tour.. fond memories indeed..

  3. I was at this gig and even 42 years later I can still remember the anticipation of waiting for Bowie to come on stage and also the excellent sound at the gig as I was more accustomed to seeing punk gigs etc. at the Apollo but Bowie had gone the extra mile and had an enormous PA system, the stage lighting, mostly white light was really striking.
