David Bowie – 1983 Souvenir Serious Moonlight Tour


David Bowie @ Madison Square Garden – NYC July 26, 1983

David Bowie was the artist that started it all for Two Of Us, a favorite artist, Bowie was taped on multiple occasions and are amongst the earliest shows recorded outside of a few shows recorded to likely prepare for the Bowie tour.

After capturing Hartford on the 16th (Volume 2), Philadelphia on the 18th (Volume 3), 20th (Volume 39), 21st (Volume 62) and New York City on the 25th (Volume 63) Two Of Us capture the second night at Madison Square.

Once again, they acquire their usual excellent seats and the resulting capture is a big upgrade over the circulating version (at least to the version on youtube).

David and band are once again firing on all cylinders and clearly David is enjoying himself on this night. The first indication it’s going to be a great performance is David’s ad lib of “I know” over and over during the reprise section of “Heroes” and punctuating the end of the song with an energetic “damn it just for one day”. He also throws in some ad libs during “Modern Love” as well. See provided samples.

These Madison Square Garden shows are special, the opening night (Volume 63) we got a rare playing of “Red Sails”, though “Red Sails” is dropped on this night and we get the rare addition of “I Can’t Explain” in the encores.

These MSG shows also come with an extremely energetic noisy audience but iZotope works its magic and we have spent a lot of extra time on this one removing almost all external audience noise making this an excellent listen from start to finish.

Thanks to “Two Of Us” and their dedication to capturing all these great shows as well as trusting me to be the caretaker of their work. Also, a big thank you to my friend “fmcleanboots” for putting me in touch and laying the groundwork that has resulted in this release and finally to professor goody for always being “on call” to ensure we’re at the correct pitch…we’ve only just begun to scratch the surface.



THROUGHOUT his 15-year career as a rock performer, David Bowie has worked out new modes of presentation, won new converts, then challenged them, his older fans and his own limits by confronting them with new work in a new mode.

Mr. Bowie doesn’t just make albums and do tours. In fact, he doesn’t tour much at all; his three sold-out performances at Madison Square Garden this week are his first here in more than five years. But wherever his work confronts us – on a single, an album, a selfdirected video, a film or, ideally, when he is on stage fronting a rock band – Mr. Bowie does his best to take us by surprise. He doesn’t just have a new sound or a new look, though he does always seem to have those. He also has new ideas, new slants on the most effective ways to mix sound and image in live performance, and a new set of concepts to tie everything together.

Mr. Bowie’s ”Serious Moonlight” show consists of songs from many of his albums, but it is more properly a performance piece, a single, coherent, resourceful and at times virtuosically imaginative mixed-media work. It deserves that designation as much as an extended piece by Robert Ashley or Laurie Anderson, and it is by turns subtler, more ferocious, more moving and more dazzling – intellectually and sensually – than anything the art world’s most celebrated performance artists have come up with.

The tour began in Europe, and there were early reports of some musical roughness, as well as gossip about the last-minute replacement of the lead guitarist Stevie Ray Vaughan (who played on Mr. Bowie’s current hit album and single, ”Let’s Dance”) with an earlier Bowie band regular, Earl Slick. But by the time Mr. Bowie and his musicians opened at Madison Square Garden last night, only a few musical kinks remained to be ironed out. The rhythm section of Carmine Rojas (bass) and Tony Thompson (drums), hadn’t yet found a comfortable tempo and groove for some of Mr. Bowie’s earlier songs, and there were occasional timing problems with a few of the more intricate arrangements. But these were very minor blemishes. As an evening of sound, light and image; as Mr. Bowie’s critical, conceptual gloss on his diverse body of work, and as visceral rockand-roll, the show was practically flawless.

When a rock star has been around as long as Mr. Bowie, it’s easy to chose the easy options, to give an audience what one thinks it wants, to lavish just enough imagination and care on a song or an album or a show to get by, please the fans, keep money in the bank.

But Mr. Bowie uses everything at his disposal – his knowledge of rock and rhythm-and-blues history; his training in body language through mime; his interest in the early performance art of the Dadaists and Surrealists and in William Burroughs’s ideas about manipulating psychology through association-blocks of sound and image; his stage and film acting experience; the observations of cultures and cultural styles made on his extensive travels and, one suspects, some reading in the literature of crowd psychology.

But all of this would be crassly Pavlovian if there weren’t some heart, some feeling in Mr. Bowie’s work. That’s the area he seems most concerned with at present, and in musical terms this means hard work on the elusive subtleties of feel. In the past, Mr. Bowie’s big problem was a lingering impression of coldness in his work. One sensed, or thought one sensed, a remote, disdainful, manipulative intelligence marshaling spectacular theatrical and musical epiphanies without ever feeling their effects.

And in this respect, the David Bowie of ”Serious Moonlight” is a new Bowie – relaxed, smiling, jaunty and more emphatically, physically involved in the music than ever before. In ”The Elephant Man,” Mr. Bowie impressed the drama critics by using his body to make apparent changes in his physical appearance. In his latest stage show, he is using that talent, the impact of his most enduring songs, and the wealth of knowledge and experience he has acquired to make great popular art – and, more to the point, great rock-and-roll.
