the concert was better than the night before,because Bowie,much more confident now of himself and his show,was even more happy and effusive. Repertory and music were identical,but Bowie’s immense gaiety,vitality and emanation could be felt even better.
The at mosphere in the hall was very good, but there was much more squash.
Especially durng Scary Monsters,when Bowie was skipping about,and the audience started imitating him.
During Let’s Dance a bunch of roses was thrown onto the stage; Bowie picked one out singing: “if you should fall into my arms,and tremble like a flower” – just before the last words he ‘committed seppuku’ with the rose and crumbled down! This impromptu was welcomed by the cheers echoing through this massive,concrete hall.
China Girl was spoilt somewhat by Bowie singing the climax rather bad. The band got all attention in White Light-White Heat. “Here she comes!” cried Bowie,and there came Earl Slick stumbling & crawling over the floor alone to finish the song.
Space Oddyty started and an English man called for Amsterdam ! He obviously had a good recollection of the early Ziggy shows in which Amsterdam was often played,and he kept on calling for the number. Bowie an nounced “I’d like to introduce you to my very fine band”,and ,after doing so he saw and heard the man calling and laughed. “No ,Young Americans”.he said and kicked the globe into the hall.
The rest of the concert was also performed masterly; after Jean Genie the audience got something of a shock when the hall lightss went on ! This lasted three seconds,then Bowie returned for the last time to do Modern Love. His shirt was wet with perspiration and he was laughing at the crowd. “But I never wave bye bye” he sang and,indeed, after the song,he left the stage without a goodbye,without a word.
