Note: This tape represents the atmosphere in this compact theatre quite well

One of the best, most special concerts:
The concert in this small theatre promised to be a great contrast to the concerts in the many times larger stadiums, among other things because of Hammersmith Odeon’s reputation in Bowie’s history: it was almost exactly ten years ago that Bowie and the audience had said farewell to Ziggy Stardust in this place. And a special concert it was indeed: no columns at the rear of the stage,no hand pointing in the air at the left; there was a shining moon,at the right this time,and for this special occasion the members of the band Here playing in plain clothes.
After the announcement “Ladies and gentlemen – on the Hammersmith stage for the first time in TEN YEARS….” the band burst into Look Back In Anger , and the order of the rest of the programme was quite different from provious concerts
After Breaking Glass Bowie let the audience know that the proceeds of the show were at least £75,000 (later it was announced that the total yield was £93,OOO),“so thank you very much indeed and let’s get on with some music!”.
There was a warm contact between Bowie and the audience; the stage was not high and the audience were leaning against it. “It’s a 2800 seater,and the smallest we’ve done so far has been 12000 I think. No maybe – 1 think Brussels was probably the smallest,about 8000. It was wonderful to have that close contact with the crowd. I was holding people’s hands ,the entire thing!”. Many things were thrown onto the stage,such as an inflatable leg which Bowie used later as guitar,and then as saxophone!
A couple of members of Amazulu who had performed before Bowie had also come on stage for the last number. “Some of Amazulu for this one,it’s called Modern Love Bowie said.
Although it was short,this was undoubtably one of the best, most special concerts of the tour,and both Bowie and the audience enjoyed every minute of it. Even those who had paid £150 on the black market got their money’s worth.inner backlabel 1 label 2
